Watch Out For That Gopher Hole

So this was funny this week. 

I hurt my back and leg and am going around with a (little) limp. 

So one of my colleagues at work sees me struggling-limping down the long hall here, and they say to me this funny thing:
Did you fall in a gopher hole?

I had to take an aback because I never heard that phrase before. 

Working outside the city here though, where a lot of people live in the burbs, and we regularly see all sorts of animals around campus, perhaps it wasn't so outlandish a question.  

Anyway, as I'm limping, I can't get that funny image out of my head.

I wonder if other people have fallen in a gopher hole and that's why back problems are so common after all. ;-)

Best Frog Slippers

So most slippers that I've seen are pretty gross. 

They are also uncomfortable. 

Someone I know refuses to replace their old slippers and they have an unsightly hole at the big toe--name withheld to protect the guilty. ;-)

And I have a old pair of Kung Fu slippers that look mean and are good for building calluses, but otherwise not so good.

However, these frog slipper that my daughter got are great!

They are actually more like sock-slippers, but they win #1 in my book. 

Who wouldn't walk a mile in these and still be smiling?
