I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
But there’s booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
___Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett
The ubiquitous, vibrantly colorful Flip Flop is the unofficial dress shoe here on the island I call home and where summer lasts most of the year. Back in the day, when I was a kid, we called them thongs and they cost less than a dollar a pair. But nowadays, thong seems to refer to a totally different article of clothing. Times change.
