Gay, Poor Old Man

Fashion & Style > Flip-flops in Florida

Flip-flops in Florida

am not that much of a shoe person. I have 3 ‘dress’ shoes that I
alternate wearing going to the theatre about 14 times of the year and I
have had them for about 10 years. I, also, have a pair of slippers that I
may wear now and then plus I got suckered into buying 2 pairs of
‘massage sandals’ that were suppose to ‘soothe’ my feet when having gout
and/or spurs.

My favorite ‘shoe’ is the
flip-flop which I wear 351 days (352 during a Leap Year) and in the
evening since I very seldom wear the slippers. Doctors will tell you
that flip-flops will harm your legs and cause problems in the future.
All I know is that when my feet hurt they ease the pain whereas shoes
cause more pain.

At this time I have 8 pairs of
flip-flops but I have had as many as 20. I use to buy some at the Dollar
Tree store but they were very thin soled and didn’t last that long. A
few years ago when Old Navy had a sale on them for $2 a pair I had
bought 4 pairs of which I still have 3. Last Saturday they had an
in-store sale for flip-flops going at a dollar a pair but I had no way
of getting there and instead went to their web site where I ordered the
same but at $2 a pair plus postage.

Size on
flip-flops are a funny thing so I bought 3 at size 10-11 and 2 at size
11-12. It took about 5 days to get here but now I am set with flip-flops
for at least 5 years. I bought 2 striped and 3 solid---hey I want my
flip-flops to match my shorts and shirt!!

It is
very rare to see anyone all dressed up in Fort Lauderdale, not even in
the theatre, except maybe some sales people. Heck even teachers wear
shorts to school but more about that later!

Want to relax and have that ‘beach bum’ feel just come on down here where not only the tourists dress like tourists!

Actually in the States thongs are tight, small,pieces of cloth covering a little bit of the croutch---google it!!
I haven't stubbed my toe once ever wearing them--you must be clumsy!!
