Isn't it unfair to be mayor of your own slippers? Other people can't check in to those.
They can when they put them on.

...You let other people wear your slippers?
All my friends in this room have worn and checked in to the pink flamingo slippers.

You don't think that's weird?
No. I have to let them. Especially at parties.

You mentioned you've had these a while?
Well, I've always been into animal slippers. I had cow slippers that mooed if you held the ear. I had SpongeBob slippers. My mom got me these for me for Christmas eight years ago. I lost them once, and I was devastated. Literally, I almost killed myself. Then I found them smooshed in a closet, and was like, "Wow...They're destined to be mine forever."

Why turn them into a Foursquare location?
They're infamous in my house. I'd wear them all the time, and everyone would make fun of me. They'd put them on sometimes, here and there, as a joke. So me and my roommate sat down. I was like, "Let's make a check-in for my slippers!" She was like, "Oh my god! Let's do it!" So we did.
