The pros and cons of flip flops

Okay, so I'm having some trouble even mentioning that there might be a con to flip flops. But after seeing the picture below you might understand. There are two rules you need to understand when viewing this picture. 1. You cannot judge the state of my bedroom floor. 2. You cannot comment on anything but the shoes :)

So, there are many pros to wearing flip flops. Keeping your feet cool. They are easy to slip on and off. They come in a multitude of colors, designs to match just about any imaginable outfit. They make a fun flip-floppy noise when you walk. I mean, my list could go on. But the con is really the purpose of this post, so I'll let you form your own pro list in your head, or feel free to comment about some pros of flip flops.

Here is a picture of my floor at the end of the week: I love flip flops and live in them during the summer. But I don't really like that this is the normal state of my floor during the summer. I mean, two of my pros become strong support for my one con. They slip off easily and they come in a wide variety of colors and designs. And therefore, they litter my floor. Sometimes I wear two pair in one day if I wear one pair to work and come home, change, and go out to do somehting else. Now, if you're a good detective, you can count 6 1/2 pairs of flip flops and one pair of slip on shoes (that are only there because I need to get one of the straps fixed and am afraid if I put them in the closet, I will forget about doing that, so they constantly get kicked around the room). The funny thing about this is that they are all SO close to the closet! If you locate the giraffe print flip flops (my newest purchase) and take two diagonal steps to the left and up, you will be able to touch the shoe rack that holds all of my flip flops. But they get kicked off before they make it to the closet. I'm not really sure why. I've tried to cure myself of this, but it hasn't worked yet. So, at the end of the week, normally on Saturday, I do one big clean up and than start the kicking off of the flip flops all over again for the next week.

My closet floor looks prety much just like that - sandals and flip flops everywhere! Perhaps we should each invest in a basket to kick flip flops into (a "flip floppery" if you will). They are worth the mess! I live in sandals/flip flops from about March to November! I refer to socks as "cotton prisons" in that time. :)
