2nd to last pair

Years ago... like early 90's, I bought a pair of Dearfoam slippers at Sears. After wearing them a couple of days, I realized they were THE perfect slippers. So I went back to Sears and bought a half dozen pairs. Towards the end of the season i got nervous that they would be discontinued so I went back and bought all they had and then went online and bought all they had there. Total of probably 20-25 pairs of slippers.

Really. And I'm not ashamed. They truly are the perfect slippers. They don't last forever though.

Today, I decided it was time to break out a new pair. And I discovered that after this pair I have on right now, there is only one left. They did, in fact, discontinue them just after I made my last buy. And I've never seen any others like 'em.

I was hoping to outlive my stash and while that could still happen, it's looking less likely. I will take exceedingly good care of these and hope maybe I can stretch their life a bit. Otherwise, I will just enjoy an exceedingly good run.

They are soft - top and bottom so I can cross my legs and they don't feel any more intrusive than socks - and don't flop off. Not my favorite color but the last pair are red.

p.s. Thanks letmesaythis for pinging me about the photo!
