I blew out my flip flop...
...but I didn't step on a pop top!
The thing is, this happened when I was out and about town, and I didn't have another pair of flips, or sneaks, or boots, or stilts.
What I DID have was a length of tan elastic in my purse.
(Yeah, I know. I don't know why I had an unshucked ear of corn in my pocket in a long-ago picture of me kneeling beside a swimming pool, either!)
Ta da! Now I'm allowed to walk in public places.
Considering that historically we've had fashions that make people's butts look big, and shark ripped jeans, and shirts that look like the seams are being worn on the outside, do you think this style might catch on?
