It’s Not a Habit, It’s Cool


I don’t think Husband was a big fan of my Shower Thoughts project.

Oh, he liked the post just fine.  That’s not the issue… it’s more that he’s not digging my process, you see.



In order to gather the material, I had to get myself in the habit of recording those random thoughts.  Which led to, occasionally, me blurting them out outside the shower.


man standing and talking, can't stop talking


Without any sort of warning.



ME:  (gets into car)
HIM:  (starts driving)
ME:  So.  Bowling shoes.
HIM:  …  (cartoonish double-take)
ME:  …
HIM:  …
ME:  …
HIM:  I’m gonna need more than that.
ME:  —
HIM:  (interrupting)  Seriously.  When you blog that, be sure to write “so, bowling shoes,” then tab down thirty lines.
ME:  I was just wondering.
HIM:  ?
ME:  Bowling shoes; comma why?
HIM:  Wh—
ME:  I mean, when you go to rent a lane they immediately ask you about your shoe size and sort of lean into the whole shoe rental thing to pressure you on that point, but do you really need special shoes?
HIM:  Yes.
ME:  I’m not—
HIM:  Yes, you do.  Because bowling, as an activity, involves sliding—
ME:  Oh, see, I don’t slide.
HIM:  …
ME:  …
HIM:  Then you’re doing it wrong.
ME:  Am not.  I’m actually pretty good.
HIM:  … And if you’re sliding in street shoes, you’ll mark up the lane.
ME:  …
HIM:  …
ME:  … Not if I wear slippers!
HIM:  … Yes.  If you show up with your fuzzy, fluffy slippers, they will look the other way.  The whole time.



I am now compelled to test this theory.


Stay tuned.

    I randomly bring thoughts up like this with my Husband. We end up having really interesting talks. A favourite random pastime.

    I used to bowl in a league when I was a kid. The shoes are very specific. They don’t mark the floors. The give enough slide to the wearer, but not so much that you will fall over when walking. They give support to the foot (unlike slippers) so you don’t fuck your feet up. All very important things.

    What could go wrong? Well, your ball could well fall on your koala’s head. Not that this would be a bad thing if it were really a koala and not your toes. (Yeah, koalas may look cute and all, but they stink like someone took a sh!t in your grandfather’s cigar humidor, if the cigars were made with eucalyptus instead of tobacco. Like they were menthol cigars. Yeah: ick.)
