funny how I'm by myself

I was in Old Navy today and saw those jelly shoes that are popular again, only they're for babies this time. Why? Why would someone do that to a baby? I always got jelly shoes when I was growing up, remember how I said kids are stupid, and they always shredded my heels. There was an article in National Geographic once about fleas and the plague and it had a picture of some guy who had a flea that had chewed on his heel and infected him with some disease or other, and there was like a crater in the back of his foot, all bloody and messy. That's what my feet looked like every year until huaraches happened, and those broke in faster and weren't so hard on my feet.

Don't do this to your babies, or I will call DCFS on you.

I'm pretty sure if you let your baby wear jelly shoes they aren't going to get the plague.

So that's why my mom wouldn't ever let us have jelly shoes. I may not have been cool but I didn't get the plague. What a mom!

I saw a little girl in DSW the other day pick up a pair of jellies and say to her mom "I just don't get why these shoes are popular. They seem really uncomfortable." Mom was proud. I gave her a little nod and smile to acknowledge her moment.

oh man, are you serious? I loved jellie shoes when I was little and I still think they are so cute, so there's a good chance Ava will have a pair some day and if Willa sees them and has an opportunity to try them herself you might just have to be ready for the plague :).
