The flip-flop. It’s like a G-string for your foot. Where is the coverage? I really like it when the flip-flop wearer tries on shoes at the store, yes, bare back. Guess that’s like the ladies and probably some gents too that try clothing on donning their G-strings. Where is the coverage?!
Now, I also appreciate the unskilled flip-flop wearer. We have all seen them: the flip-flop wearer that is not quite comfortable and stable in the flip-flop. They can be found dragging their feet to keep their flip-flops on. It’s similar to a lady in high heels that clearly has limited practice with the shoe. So we wait as they slide along, slide slide slide like a beginner skater on the ice.
Lets talk about that attractive sound the flip-flop makes when the wearer is walking. It’s the kind of sound that one might feel compelled to say “Excuse me” after. What is that anyway ? I guess it is the foot plunging away from the flip-flop. I am thinking moisture may be a component here. Lovely thought as I observe the flip-flop wearer bare backing at the shoe department.
Let’s talk about credibility. There have been a few occasions I see a smartly and professionally dressed woman at work, only to have it all fall apart as she walks away; plunge, plunge, plunge. To me, flip-flops are a flop.
I don’t wear flip flops for the same reason I don’t wear thongs… the thin part that gets all jammed up in your business…
