Maybe it’s just me, I’m not a lover of feet, they aren’t the most attractive part of a person’s body are they? Lets be honest here; they are frequently frightening to look at. There is just something very wrong about men baring their toes in a pair of flip-flops.
I do appreciate however, that flip-flops are particularly practical for shower use, or on the beach, especially when you are wet from the sea, and need something to put on quickly. Personally, I think they should stay there; at the beach.
Wearing his newly acquired flip-flops, Dav and I were walking down to the shore to watch some of our friends surfing. On the way I noticed that he was walking strangely, rather like a constipated penguin on hot sand, which frankly isn’t unusual as he is always hurting his limbs doing sports or at work. Concerned, I asked him if he had injured his hip. No, he answered; it’s these bloody flip-flops; I can’t walk in them. Giggling, I looked at his feet and observed that he was placing his foot down and lifting it up, trying desperately to not lose the flip-flop – no flip or flopping action at all! It did look hilarious. As we walked towards our friends, we were discussing how to walk in flip-flops, (I didn’t realise it was so technical) we got to the edge of the sea, and one of our friends called over, “Dav, have you hurt yourself?” I chuckled, as Dav picked up the offending items, gesturing to hurl them into the sea, “My flip-flops don’t work; the battery must have run out or something!” – Understandably, our mates rolled about laughing.
