Warm N Toasty

Updated on January 20, 2012

The Simple Joys Of Life

I love it when I come home and kick off my sneakers or work shoes and throw those wonderful slippers on

My feet have just entered feet heaven

My slippers are fur lined and very very comfortable

Then on occasion I have been known to grab my wifes slippers ( by mistake)

Boy do they feel good soft and fluffy

Until she yells have you seen my slippers and I yell back

I will look for them where did you have them last

That gives me some extra feet pampering time

Then as she looks around the house

She suddenly remembers where she left them and their not there

She will say in a very firm tone HONEY

Hey I want my slippers back you have your own

It is funny how I just found them and I thought I would warm them up for you

She knows me only too well

Then I go and grab a blanket and cover over my shoulders like a shawl

The only problem is this is a full size blanket and I can't walk or I will fall

So I lay on the couch and wrap it around my body like a cocoon

I have no plans of going anywhere soon

Then if I have to get up and move around I pull out the old bathrobe

The fluffy white terry cloth one that the cruise ships carry

I wrap the tie tight as if I am never going to take it off

Then again I have been known to take my wifes robe

A case of mistaken identity

The soft bright flowered robe only a woman would wear

It brings me back to my childhood and all I can think of is my first stuff animal

Who doesn't like that

I just wanted you to see

Even men can be weak in the knees when it comes to being pampered and spoiled

What good is life if we can't break the rules and push the limits

      alocsin I am just happy someone is reading them.Part humor part reality.Sometimes serious sometimes funny.A story or a poem. A thought or a conversation topped off by a reader who is enticed to read one more line hopefully never board.Thanx so much and the challange continues.

      I'm not sure whether to classify this as poetry or prose. Interesting read nevertheless. Voting this Up and Interesting.

      Dim Flaxenwick Thanx so much.Truthfully my life isn't that exciting.So I am like a little kid who learns to play by himself.I have so much fun and I never grow up and now all I have to do is play and then write about it.That is of course when I get done playing.That could be awhile.I appreciate your wonderful comments and thoughts.I will warn you I have been known to stretch the boundaries of our imagination.Be prepared to laugh unconrollably.Think illogically.See things that make no sense as really funny.Love everyone and everything just a little bit more.If you don't believe me you can check with my wife.She loves me and still doesn't understand me.She says thats a good thing.

      I loved reading this and can so relate to it - my other half and I are always swapping and borrowing each others dressing gown ( they are matching ) when I borrow his it drowns me and when he borrows mine its too tight on him brings many a laugh to us - and the slippers thing is so funny.
