There’s a song by Jimmy Buffet where he sings, “Blew out my flip flop.” Well, that happened to me this morning. I don’t like wearing shoes or slippers. I have been wearing flip flops more and more these past couple of years as well at the popular Crocs that millions of people are enjoying wearing. This morning the darn piece that goes between your toes pulled through and tore and had to be trashed. So I went shopping for a new pair on my lunch hour. OMG – I cannot believe how much money they are charging for flip flops. I think $9 – $10 is plenty. Hell, when I was a kid they were going for a buck. But allowing for everything else to get ridiculously expensive, I still think that $50 – $60 for a pair of flip flops is outrageous. I finally found a pair for $7.99 and bought two of them.
I know that they prices will go down as spring and summer get closer but I just don’t want to wait that long. I used to have a ton of flip flops but throughout the years my supply has started to dwindle, but right now isn’t the right time to be buying a bunch of flip flops. I should be all set for now.
