It would be so nice if my flip-flops were comfortable. As in comfortable for more than two blocks of walking. When the temperature hits about a billion degrees, who wants to put on shoes and socks? I don’t. Nor am I inclined to wear Croc’s (if only Seinfeld were still airing episodes – they’d have a field day with those). So I’m stuck wearing the coolest, most (un)comfortable footwear around: Reefs. I know: stop the presses.

I’m no surfer dude, nor do I spend much time around a pool, but when going for a relaxing walk outside it would be nice to do it without ankle pain. I feel like a debutante after a formal ball – keeping a smile on my face despite the pain in my feet and ankles. Especially my ankles. Now if only I were as tall as a debutante.
