Last week Gretchen Goldman, PHD went on CNN to discuss climate change and what everyone saw was a traditional “talking head”.
After the interview she decided to share what was going on behind the scenes and we got another real glimpse of life in 2020.
The photos have since gone viral as people lightheartedly poke fun at the picture. The chair on the table, her in shorts, the wifi straining to keep a connection, the hidden toys in every nook and cranny of the space but the thing that has been getting the most attention is her shoes being on inside her home. Both sides of the argument have dug in and nobody seems to be budging from their position.
On television nobody takes off their shoes unless they are getting into a bed. Could you imagine Kramer sliding into Jerry’s apartment and then stopping to take off his shoes? Or Joey and Chandler barging into Monica and Rachel’s but having to stop first?
However, in the real world, it’s not nearly as common. I can understand if you have carpet, but if you have hardwood or tile everywhere why not keep your shoes on?
In our house I have “indoor” shoes which are actually a pair of bright blue crocs. They provide me with more arch support than a pair of slippers but are less troublesome than having to tie up a pair of shoes.
I am curious, do you wear shoes inside your home?
Let me know!
