Slippers? Oh that's a seasonal item...

So Jim is in desperate need for some new slippers. Like once a week he pulls one off his foot and sticks it in my face for me to smell. No, I don't voluntary smell his gross slipper...he tends to sneak up on me. So anyway, I bought him a pair for Christmas, size 12. They were too small. So we returned them and have been looking for a size 13 pair ever since. We have some gift cards to use at JCPenney and Kohl's for returns we had made, but we haven't been able to find any slippers.

The other day, this is how our conversation went...

Me: Okay, I really need to find you some slippers
Jim: Yeah. I swear nobody carries them right now
Me: laughing, it's not like stores only sell men's slippers at Christmas

So today I was at Kohl's with my mom, again looking for a pair of slippers for Jim. I finally decide to ask someone since I can't find them anywhere. What did I find out? Apparently they only sell men's slippers at Christmas. Can you believe that? Hilarious.

I did look at JCPenney and they did have a few pairs, but no size 13. I swear...the man is going to have to buy some online because I'm sick of his stinky, sweaty slipper in my face!

DH just bought a pair at Walmart. He isn't really a slipper guy so he bought a pair to try. They are a size 13-14. I doubt they were made for longevity but they will do for now. They look fleecy with a rubberish bottom. HTH.
