According to the newspaper there's going to be a new store opening in our local mall. There going to be selling flip flops. Just flip flops. Flip flops that cost between $20 and $100.
My first reaction to this stop-the-presses story?
Whew! Thank heavens. We sure could use a flip flop store around here! It's about time dangit!
Hold on there just a minute. Hundred dollar flip flops?? HUNDRED DOLLAR FLIP FLOPS?
Well, OK so my hubby would say that twenty dollars is ridiculous for a pair of flip flops. What are we talking about here? A little bit of foam rubber and a piece of plastic? I mean, maybe, if they're really cute and sparkly. With sequins. And polka dots. But hundred dollar flip flops? I don't get it. Are they made of gold? Are they woven out of hair from the back end of an endangered Beav-coon? Cause otherwise...
Unless...maybe they come with fake, press-on toenails or something. For that kind of money they'd better make my toenails look pretty AND give me a foot massage.
Shouldn't flip flops cost about a dollar and a half at Walgreens?
