Not long ago, I bought 2 pairs of 99 cent plain ol’ rubber flip-flops for our trip to Destin this past June. The first morning we were there I woke up, swung my legs over the side of the bed, and slipped into my flip-flops--WoW! WHAT?!? You mean I’ve been paying $ XX.00 all these years for “comfortable” shoes when all I had to do was buy a pair of FLIP-FLOPS! I could have bought 80 to 100 pairs for the price I’ve paid for 1 pair of the others! What’s wrong with me?!?
Who invented flip-flops anyway? If my friend Don reads this, he’ll have an answer for us all in seconds! I could have looked it up myself I suppose, but the truth is – I DON’T CARE! My love and respect for flip-flops have been RENEWED!! Kisses and hugs to whoever you are! You have made our lives simple, comfortable, and financially manageable (unlike the guy - and I’m sure it was a guy - who invented panty hose and spiked heels). We salute you, flip-flop guy!
You know, I wore flip-flops most of my young life. Somehow along the way I must have thought I had outgrown them…no matter, I don’t have time to linger when there’s work to be done. Summer will be gone before we know it, (Thank You, Lord!) so I’ve got to get out there and buy up as many flip-flops as I can carry because once they’re gone, we won’t see them again until next May. Don’t be surprised if you see me in January and I’m sporting 99 cent flip-flops.
(Maybe Emily isn’t so crazy after all!)
