Aiming For My Own Green Slippers myspace graphic comments

We have a client, a nice older lady (yeah, five years older than me -- geez) who is always the epitome of elegance. She's always stylishly dressed, red hair casually but perfectly tousled, nails done. She's truly a knock-out and must have been drop-dead gorgeous at twenty. She came in yesterday wearing a mid-calf length black skirt with an animal print top, complemented by simple but tasteful gold jewelry. Then I happened to look down, because she always has killer shoes, and she had on ... fluffy green backless bedroom slippers. I wonder if she forgot to put on her shoes or whether she just didn't give a flip? They do say age has its perks. I can't wait (I guess).

Bedroom slippers are acceptable at;

1. Walmart
2. Some K-Marts
3. Denny's
4. Dog Walking
5. Sonic (You can be naked at Sonic)

Now...Guess what you're getting for Christmas?

LOL! I love it!! There are some perks to being invisible (older than 45) in this country. I now cut my own hair, buy all my clothes at Goodwill and complain constantly. It's quite fun to be perfectly honest. I'm becoming one of those people you go shopping late on a weekend to Wally World to see. Great story!! xo

Um, I've been to Sonic, Mr. G. I didn't see any naked people. I'm sorry, but I still refused to wear my bedroom slippers (mine are pink) to any of those places because you just never know what you might step in.:-)

Hey, Marion, I cut my own hair, too. It's too bad we don't live closer together. We could do each other's hair. Trust me, dahling, you could never look like one of The People of Wal-Mart, not even on your worst day.:) Oh, and God yes, I complain constantly. But damn it, it is JUSTIFIED!:-)

I was wondering what happened to my green slippers after the Rohypnol wore off. Lucky I had the ruby red ones as my back-ups. Still, maybe this is my wake-up call to swear off redheads once and for all.

Colorado Sonics have a nudity exclusionary clause, which is double indemnified if fashion interruptus is accomplished with green slippers. Of course, this was only recently codified, when the judge what writ it was waylaid by a halibut across the kisser.

But hey, jurisimprudence hereabouts is pretty SOP.

I believe those were MY ruby slippers you made off with, puppy.;)

Skunk, the law is such gobbledy-gook that I'm thinking I should stay out of Sonic 'til somebody figures it out. I don't want to go the way of the judge.:)
