Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
NOTE - Photo taken at In House Café, where Rodriguez also
reigns as mayor.
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.
