Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Wednesday! Wow, can you believe it’s Wednesday again already?
Anyways. Today, I’m continuing the series from yesterday, and writing about:
Fuzzy Slippers (part 2)
Slippers with and without “sticky” Soles
Yes, that’s my next set of “two” comparisons. You can either get slippers with high friction stuff on them, or not. The amount of non-friction stuff you get also varies.
All-rubber Soled Slippers.
These have their place. They are not always too objectionable, either. In fact, my main pair of genuine slippers has rubber soles.
There are several advantages to this type of slipper.
1) You don’t fall on wood or tile floors. That, of course, is usually a plus.
Right. Usually. I’m sure there are certain instances when people would want to fall. Gravity checks, for example.
Ok, you’ve got me. What are “gravity checks”? Is that when
Heavens, no! Gravity checks are a public service whereby a person limits muscle control in order to ensure that gravity is still working. At the same time, they also usually end up examining the floor.
That’s a less graceful way to put it, but yes. So, rubber soled slippers make gravity checks a bit harder. But moving on.
2) Sturdy soles allow you to wear your slippers outside. This allows you to use your slippers as props for movies. After all, how are you going to film a movie in Suburbia if you can’t go get your newspaper in your bath robe and slippers?
That’s about it for the advantages of sticky soles that I can think of.
Partially Sticky Soled Slippers
Basically, there are two advantages.
1) fewer accidental gravity checks, and
2) they take less room than the completely sticky-soled slippers. (Try saying that quickly three times in a row!) But it’s true. There are some slippers that have just a little bit of flexible, sticky stuff on the soles. These are still very compact slippers, and take less room than the full-rubber-soled slippers that cannot bend.
Aren’t these normally referred to as “socks”?
…They’re fuzzier than most socks. So maybe, but it doesn’t matter. They still have advantages. Such as:
1) SLIPPER SLIDING!! If you can stand on a slippery surface somewhere, you can also slide on it. Just take a running start, and… SLIDE! Fluffy slippers like that are the best for sliding.
2) Extra-Super-Hyper-Compact. These are slippers you can take with you anywhere. In fact, you probably should take them with you wherever you go, since they can also serve as packing material! Do you have a book you don’t want getting crushed? Pack your slippers around them! Do you want a pillow? Lean back against a slipper!
WHAT? No. Just no. That’s gross.
Ok, yeah. Maybe you shouldn’t use them as a pillow.
Packing material is still legit though.
So there you go, Fluffsters! I hope you enjoyed the analysis of this dichotomy of fuzzy slippers. Have a great rest of your weak!
