Fuzzy Shoes

On the bus,  a middle-aged woman sporting fuzzy lime green shoes. Bath-robes on her feet. How odd. And then, I start to like them.

  1. I like the fuzzy shoes! Great image!

  2. Thanks so much for including me in your blog roll. You are reminding me I have a document called “Weird Shit” where I catalog things just like that woman and her fuzzy green bathrobe slippers. I must go look what’s in there. It will be like searching for buried treasure. Welcome to the blogosphere.

    • They were actually mary-janes (should that be capitalized?) but the reeeeally weird part is that it was -20 yesterday and with lots of fresh snow. Yet, there she was, in her fuzzy shoes. Everyone else wore boots up to their armpits.

What do you think?
