Tools of the trade
I travel. On my last business trip, my suitcase handle stuck and I had to ask my boss to carry my suitcase. This is not a cool thing to do, so on Black Friday I chose the closest store that would have the least crowds with the biggest sale, and went to retrieve my Good Deal on a new Delsey overnighter. While standing in line, which was very long but moved along nicely, I rummaged through the shoes and socks on sale. Now when you have a home office, it is a standing joke to tell someone you are working in your jammies and bunny slippers, especially when it is early in the morning. One of my friends (you know who you are) told me last year how 'loved' by houseshoes looked. So there they were, bunny slippers, calling my name. They are soft and warm and will keep my ankles warm in my cold office this winter. They look like something I should have had when I was 13, but since they are in my grown-up size, they must have been meant for me. Suitcase and bunny slippers, for the new job.
