As far as I'm concerned flip flops are for post-pedi's and poolside. Period.
Unless of course one decides to walk six miles in the heat and humidity in new shoes (in this city, this city, this city that just makes you want to walk and walk and keep walking...and shoe shopping).
In such circumstances flip flops are, well, essential footwear.
And how funny, perfect, ridiculous is it that last night in my feeling-no-pain state (maybe should have skipped that Tanquery at Blue Ribbon in the wee hours) I actually got a blister on a blister. Damn.
