Kacie, observant fashion-chick that she is, noted how much I like flipflops. I was forced to go out and buy new ones this year for three reasons:
1. I couldn't find my old ones. Well, I found one of each pair. But not only do they not match, they're both for the same foot.
2. Some ghostly presence has stolen my socks, so when I'm wearing black slacks, I can't really wear my regular shoes without looking totally geekish--a nice band of winter-pale ankle over a black shoe looks horrid.
3. I went shopping with my daughter.
This third reason is perfectly clear to anyone who has a teenaged daughter. If I shop by myself, I can talk myself out of anything (except malted milk balls). With the Shopping Princess, things are a bit different.
Now I have two pairs of black flipflops (one with wild flowers over the toes, one sedately plain), one white pair with blue starfish, one beige pair, and one brown pair.
YES! I bought FIVE pairs of flipflops! At one time!
I should feel bad. Very bad. Instead I feel good. Very good.
I love flipflops!
