Finally....FLIP FLOPS!

Post by SweetMelissa »

ok, I know it's only 48 degrees here in MA today, however I think it's warm enough to finally break out my ....FLIP FLOPS!!!!! I'm so excited. I haven't been able to wear them for for about 5months because of the snow. Does anyone else get this excited about this? :lol:

I live in Colorado. I wear my flip flops in the snow.


I do get happy when my toes finally defrost, though.

I've been wearing them off and on for at least a month - but then I'm in Texas. And I was SO HAPPY to be able to break mine out!!!
Well...(said in my best Bubba voice) I've been on sabbatical.

I consider myself a flip flop connoisseur so I can understand your excitement. For the record I also live in MA and I've been wearing mine since mid Febuary :lol:

I wear mine all winter long unless there is snow on the ground, I have gotten some funny looks and some comments like wishful thinking.

Sorry I do not have the need to, I live in Nor Cal, I wear shorts to work 360 days a year, and as soon as I get home, the shoes go off, and the flip flops or Berks go on, and off to the backyard tiki bar i go.

I can't really wear flops (stupid narrow feet) I have to stick to boat shoes, loafers, and occasionally Tevas or Birks.

There is no good reason to ever wear flip flops.

Sure there is - if you're the kind of person that likes to bother people with that annoying slapping sound whenever you take a step. Sometimes I just feel like grabbing a nice air nailer and attaching the sole to the bottom of their foot for them.

Yeah, I got to wear my flip flops about a week ago. It was great! Of course, now it's cold and rainy, but the memory remains.... :D
