Ah, that snazzy parquet flooring framed a perfectly adorable pair of slippers which were presented to me upon my arrival at Jama's house.
I mentioned ONCE -- ages ago -- that I loved those slippers and would like to visit them if I ever visited her. Months and months fast forward -- they were waiting for me when I arrived, along with ROOT BEER, which I can't get in the UK, and Cholula Hot Sauce, which is the Hot Sauce of Greatness (Sorry, Louisiana Hot Sauce - I know that's how everyone else in my family rolls, but ... gotta go with Mexico on this one).
My mother thought I looked like the Bernstein Bears' Mama Bear with these on, which promptly made me take them off... also, it was almost 100°F that day, and the slippers just didn't suit my frame of mind. However, they were still really cute, and made me fit in with the rest of the denizens of the house!
