I know the staff around here will mock me for this but I'm excited to report that National Flip-Flop Day is Friday, June 17.
And nooooooo, this is not a day to celebrate politicians who change their minds.
Mind you, I don't wear flips on the job but come June 17 I will parade around the office in a brand new pedicure and my special fuzzy, fluffy flips. (I crochet 'em myself.) Or maybe it will be the copper sequined flips. Hmmm, the platform black ones with silver studs? Oh, I saw some beaded ones in a Chiefland store that would be Flip-Flop Day appropriate. If I can't decide I'll just have to put a few in a bag and change 'em by the hour.
Truly, the state shoe of Florida is the flip-flop. I'm just not sure we have officially declared it so. It's time we did.
Maybe state Sen. Oelrich who represents a tad of Levy County could tack an amendment on his name-the-barking-frog-the-state-amphibian bill to designate the flip-flop the official state footwear..
I know, the folks who wear Crocs might try declaring their shoe the official shoe but it comes from Colorado. Besides, we have more flippers than crocers in Florida.
I am not a Croc wearer. Don't even own a pair. The Carnivore is a Croc wearer, but he's also a flipper. He prefers basic $1 flips in black but they do not come in his ginormous foot size at that price. As for me, I am a dollar flipper and I have the right size feet for them. So I have a variety of flips lurking about.
But back to June 17 and National Flip-Flop Day. Send me a photo of the flips you plan to wear that day. I'll download 'em and show them off on our website while getting my pedi.
