I enjoy watching my working men splitting wood to burn this winter.
Trouble is, it means that winter will actually be here.
I don't think I can handle that.
I hate winter. I think I may have mentioned that before.
This is a problem because I live in Michigan. I might have mentioned that, too.
Also, I have a bigger problem this year.
I can't find any slippers.
Every winter, I burn through two pairs of slippers. I wear them non-stop. My floors are very cold. Last year, I had the thought that I should buy 28 pairs. I wish I had. Cuz I love me my slipper in the winter (and a good portion of "spring" and "fall").
And not just any slippers, they must be special slippers. They absolutely must have a flexible rubber sole. I can't stand stiff, plasticky soles, but anything cloth-like will wear through in no time at all. Also, they must be fairly dark-colored. Definitely not pink or... pink. Or fluffy. And they must be slip-on, clog style, with no backs.
This year, all I can find is froo-froo, fluffy, freaky things that I would end up throwing in the woodstove after a day if I even tried to wear them. They're just awful. Oh, and there are these weird fleece-lined croc things that I'm not even going to think about because it makes me throw up a little in my mouth when I do.
For the last two winters I've gotten slippers that meet my criteria and were cheap, too. I loved them. And now, I can't find any for sale.
And that simply won't do.
So, Hawaii it is.
