mis-matched flip flops


A while back, I was over at Fond of the Beach reading about This and That where she was showing off her new headband and sharing her feelings about flip flops. Admiring her headband photo I said warned you can have too many flip flops if you’re not careful. Take my wife and our recent camping trip. As I was quickly and quietly setting up our new tent for the first time, my wife blurts out “oh no!”

Being the concerned husband, I asked what’s wrong only to learn that she had brought mis-matched flip flops. Both black but distinctly different from each other. Blame it on pregnancy I guess. No worries I told her. They are very similar and nobody’s going to be looking at your feet while we’re camping.

This may come as a surprise to you ladies but every women with us noticed within a couple of hours. So remember, you can have too many flip flops. My advise, make sure they are all very different so you can tell in the dark if they match or not.

    The poor thing! I’ve done that…worn two different shoes. Mine were church shoes and one was black, the other navy. Tell your wife that I KNOW I wouldn’t have noticed…shoes are the last thing I look at on a woman, unless they’re gold and sparkly :)

    Isn’t that always the way…I am always surprised by the fact that women seem to notice these things even under the circumstances you mentioned….Camping, and people are looking at feet! LOL!

    My feet can only stand leather… so I am one of the few people who don’t wear flip-flops! I think it is a fun option to wear different ones, it’s like wearing different earrings, it looks different! here via Michele’s, nice to meet you, I have seen your name around :)

    Different shoes, eh. Well if it was good enough for Punky Brewster back in the days, it is good enough for…Actually forget about Punky Brewster. We don’t need any frightening 80’s flashback.

    […] Ah man. I have to be careful. If I go on like this, everyone will get shark related items and it is possible to have too much of a good thing. […]
