Walking back to my car from Shopko I noticed that the woman in front of me was wearing pink fuzzy slippers. She had on red sweatpants, too. At first my thoughts were catty in nature...."how in God's green earth could someone leave the house in red pants and pink slippers."
But, what popped in my head next was the most delightful idea: maybe this woman had it right. Wouldn't we all be happier if we wore slippers shopping, to work, to concerts, out to eat. Think how comfortable life would be. I bet people would smile more, say hello more, and be in better moods if we wore slippers all day.
And slippers could bring an element of frivolity too often missing in life. The slippers you wear could reflect your mood or personality. There are bunny slippers, Tweety Bird slippers, Scooby Doo slippers, cow slippers, dog slippers, leopard skin (fake, of course) slippers, Ninja Turtle slippers --- just to name a few. Imagine on a gray, damp, gloomy Monday pulling out the yellow Tweety Bird slippers and skipping happily into work. That day is automatically better because of the slippers.
