Dispatches From the Edge: The Latest in Unemployed Fashion

I'm so excited to share with you my latest piece in unemployed fashion. Everyone knows that if you're going to have an unemployed robe then you need a good pair of slippers to match. I do have a pair of Hush Puppies:




And pretty regular slippers:



They suit me well and I like them, but they don't completely satisfy. They each have their downsides, which I won't get into right now. But as you know Jess and I were away to the luxurious Woodinville Wine Country for the weekend, and low and behold these beauties were nicely shrink-wrapped in our hotel bathroom:



Let me just tell you that they're a real dream. The "slip in, slip on" factor cannot be beat. These things are going to stay on your feet come hell, highwater or stairs, guaranteed. They're also really cushy. The hotel only wanted $4 for them, so I said you got it.

It's strange because as much as I like them, I also would like it if I didn't have to use them all that much, i.e. I would be at work and so wear more normal things on my feet.

It's a tough call.

You are the funniest unemployed man I know. And those are the stupidest looking slippers I've ever seen... no wait, I take that back, your "Homer" slippers probably take the award for stupidest --- how come they didn't make an appearance in this fashion feature? ;)
