Slipper Thingys

I have bad feet. Part of it goes back to when I had chemo-therapy. The chemo caused what is known as peripheral neuropathy. As a result of that I hate to wear shoes because they cause pressure on my feet, thus causing pain. So you'd think I'd be running around barefoot all the time, but no, I also have pinched nerves in my feet and pressing them to the hard ground causes more pain. So my remedy for the foot pain is to wear my little slip-on thingys that are sort of like flip flops without the toe thong. They do the job, but they are also somewhere around ten years old, and quite beat up. Three years ago Chandler used them as chew toys, which makes sense because of the sheer funkiness of them. And by funk I mean dirt, smell, and well, more dirt. Each and every year around Christmas and my birthday, I throw the hint out to Mark. I need new slipper thingys. They need to have a thick sole, not be too tight, and be easy to slip on and off. It's only four days until Christmas, and seven days until my birthday, and this is an obvious hint to Mark. He says he never reads this blog, but once a week I get yelled at for making him sound too shrill, petty, and mean. He's not. He's the finest, most caring, and loveable man on earth. Now get me those slipper thingys!

  1. Maybe he'll finish the bedroom remodeling too for you while he's at it. A nice vacation to Cancun, Mexico for you as a Christmas gift would be nice too; for all you've done for him. (Hint, Hint)

  2. HEY MARK! My Boys wear the ones from sports shops, like Dicks Sporting Goods or Bob's. They are "springy" and easy to slip on. I think they are Addidas brand or Nike. Good Luck Alan!

  3. Or, Alan, you could tell all your fans what size you wear?

  5. It's not so new anymore. But it is untouched.

    I agree with Gr8 Scott. Tell your shoe size here and you'll probably receive enough pairs of slipper thingys from your fans to last you for years!! I know I would send you a pair if I had your shoe size.

  7. I didn't do this to elicit gifts from everyone. I did it to get a pair of slipper thingys from Mark. Size 11.
