As I have noted previously, I wear flip flops all the time. Yes, yes, just like many of you, the flip flop is my go-to footwear for 8 months of the year. Several times I have been out and about, you know, shopping, mingling, wining and dining, being social, coffee-shop-ing, and all of a sudden…
If you know anything about me, you know I don’t like to be in or near flip flops. But after a week at the lake I decided that I might be swayed to the dark side. The side that I used to make fun of, the side that told me flip flops are great. I spent an entire week without shoes or a shirt for that matter and was quite comfortable. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Even though I didn’t do any running, using public bathrooms, walking in wet grass, chasing a purse thief, driving a car, trying to date, shopping, playing any sports, and well doing anything productive.
There are many things that are not totally annoying, but they are slightly annoying. I think tying your shoes is one of those things. I mean it‚Äôs something that usually has to be done if you don‚Äôt want to risk tripping yourself and breaking your kneecaps off. If you wear shoes that have laces I highly recommend tying your shoes…come on don‚Äôt be lazy. You still have both your kneecaps right? Good, you‚Äôll want to keep those.
I don‚Äôt know about you but I like to be free‚Ä¶ and that includes my feet. Flip flops offer some nice freedom for the feet but beware‚Ä¶ oh beware, there are hidden dangers.
