Supreme Court Justices are Just Like Us

Well, Justice Ginsburg does something that I do a lot, at least: (via 2parse)

I think back to the days when — I don’t know who it was — when I think Truman suggested the possibility of a woman as a justice. Someone said we have these conferences and men are talking to men and sometimes we loosen our ties, sometimes even take off our shoes. The notion was that they would be inhibited from doing that if women were around. I don’t know how many times I’ve kicked off my shoes. Including the time some reporter said something like, it took me a long time to get up from the bench. They worried, was I frail? To be truthful I had kicked off my shoes, and I couldn’t find my right shoe; it traveled way underneath

Since Justice Ginsburg is older than my grandmother, I guess I’m not likely to be thought of as frail for this, just weird.
