Yesterday was Pajama Day at school. It reminded me why I don’t use pajamas: they’re clingy and hot. Shorts will do fine, thank you very much. And wearing pajamas all day? Yuck. I almost changed into a shirt and tie when I got home, just so I could feel more comfortable.
The other thing that yesterday helped me re-appreciate was my teacher shoes. They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. They are so comfortable, I wear them on the weekends even. But on Pajama Day, you have to wear slippers. I have to say: slippers are perhaps the worst shoes to wear on cement floors. I was walking on the balls of my feet all day, because if my heel struck the floor, there was a loud thump, and a bone-jarring shock that traveled up my spine. If I wore slippers to school every day, I would have spine troubles by the end of the first week.
Thank you, God, for comfortable shock-absorbing teacher shoes. They are my new favorite blessing.
