Danny and I went to the Starbucks on Buffalo Speedway and Westpark on Saturday night. The gentleman waiting in line behind us was wearing a tee-shirt, jeans, and white crocodile loafers with a long, square tip. We decided that this man’s footwear is what is wrong with the world.
This led to a discussion about who should be permitted to wear white crocodile loafers. It’s a privilege, not a right. We came up with the following:
1. Tom Wolfe
2. Cuban drug-runners
3. Casino owners in Reno, Tahoe, or Atlantic City (but not casino owners in Vegas)
4. Eccentric old men living in South Beach
Nineteen-year-old punk wannabes need not apply. Next time we see a man wearing white crocodile loafers, we plan on asking him if he is a drug-runner or a casino mogul. I’m pretty sure I could pick out Tom Wolfe in a crowd, and those old men are unmistakable.
We were undecided about white crocodile loafers as female footwear.
In other news, lately every time I turn on Lewis, my laptop, he informs me persistently but politely that he would like a new battery. I am perfectly happy to purchase a new battery for Lewis. He has served me well since my Finley Fizzle days, and I want to keep him particularly content as I write my dissertation. I notice, however, that the three batteries available through Dell (ranging in price from $140 to $185) have received HORRIBLE customer reviews. Dell (obviously) recommends purchasing a Dell battery, although there are a few options from other companies that claim to be compatible. These are often considerably cheaper but make me a little nervous.
Thoughts? Anyone have experience in purchasing a laptop battery? Nick or Allison perhaps?
