Don't hassle the Croc

I'm not even a little bit embarrassed to admit how much I like Crocs, the durable, comfortable and just hideously ugly footwear.

But ("Everyone I know has a big but. C'mon Simone, let's talk about your big but" -- Pee Wee Herman) I don't like them enough to actually wear them in public, because, like most people, I hate to be made fun of. I usually just put on Mrs. N-B's pair when I'm hanging out around the house or in the basement.

This would probably come as welcome news to the crocs detractors, but as sad commentary on the hurdles that remain for the crocs lovers.

But now that I've seen The Decider wearing them out (right), maybe I'll rethink my reservations. If only I could figure out where to get some socks with the presidential seal on them.

Maybe it's 'cause I worked at an environmental non-profit, but I used to have co-workers who would wear crocs to work. One with a pair of super-thick REI wool hiking socks.

wow - which is more embarrassing? wearing your own crocs out of the house or not leaving the house but admitting that you wear mrs. n-b's pair?

i hope they're the bright pink ones. and i hope mrs. n-b surreptitiously gets a picture of you wearing them and sends it to bean and me.

I'm pretty embarrassed that everyone now knows that:

A. I purchased Crocs (on the mean streets of Portland, Me., because I needed comfy shoes)

B. My feet are as big as Naturalbl0gs.

For the record, Mrs. Stringfellow, they're blue.
