Today I thought about them as I pulled away from the driveway to go to school, barely ten minutes from my last fix. I longed for them when I was teaching, as I conferred with little writers. They occupied my thoughts at lunch, as I walked down the hall to check my mailbox, while I was synchronizing my calendar.
They were on my mind in the middle of a team meeting. I even tried to create ways I could get them to school.
I couldn't wait to get home. They provide comfort and escape. My Ugg slippers.
