Uggs - The Ugly Stepchild of the Boot Family
First thing I had to buy were shoes because the cute leather boots I brought with me were only good if I planned on never going outside or leaving an airport. What was I thinking? So, I broke down and listened to my sister and bought a pair of Uggs. Mary has been on my case to buy Uggs for the last three years. This year, she got her wish. I put my feet inside a pair last night and I knew within two seconds that they were going home with me. So soft and comfortable. And so wonderfully warm. Like a teddy bear.
I've always thought of Uggs as the red-headed (sorry, redheads out there) step-child (ditto for step-children) of the boot family. They won't be too functional in the Arizona desert but while I'm in Chicago, I can play outside with my niece and nephew without crying in pain from the cold. And, jeez, is it cold!
Okay, I'll say it. Mary was right. I love my Uggs.
