June 10th, 2008- a date which will live in infamy. I am in mourning. This morning my wife decided to throw out my beloved Addidas shower shoes/flip flops. Mind you, these shoes have been with me from medical school through residency and now to attending. From DC to Baghdad to Hanoi and home again. And why did she decide to do this now? Because they smelled? Negative. Because they were ugly? As if that were possible. No, because my son decided to tear them apart and put a piece of one of them completely into his mouth. I’m saving that piece (a round Addidas disk that sat under my heel) for when he gets older and can fully appreciate what has happened on this cold black day.
In happier news, Morgan has discovered Youtube (or I should say Youtube has discovered Morgan) and has become an overnight sensation not witnessed since Obama Girl burst onto the scene last year. The video of him rocking out to our favorite Irish drinking song (seen below) has gone viral, watched by at least 5 people that I sent it to.
We will be observing a minute of silence at 5pm Mountain Time in honor of my shoes. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Jeremy M. Eager Fund For Purchasing New Shower Shoes.
