Friday, June 17, 2016 – National Flip Flop Day
Today is National Flip Flop Day! Really, there is a day designated as National Flip Flop Day. I read it on the Internet so I know it is true. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/flip-flop-day/
So today’s HWIT is dedicated to my friend, JFP, the 1966 Homecoming Queen of Magnolia High School. She and I (like so many other intelligent women) share the same belief regarding footwear – If I can’t wear flip flops (tennis shoes in my case), and then I am not going.
National Flip Flop Day was founded by Tropical Smoothie. If a patron visits a Tropical Smoothie store wearing flip flips today he or she receives a free smoothie. The money is donated to Camp Sunshine – camp that provides support for children and their families with life threatening illnesses.
So flip on your flip flops and stroll along the beach or take a walk in the park and maybe get a smoothie from Tropical Smoothie. If you are not up for a walk in the Texas heat here is another thought.
Slide those flippy floppy shoes on, have a cocktail and dance around the room singing along with Jimmy. It’s 5:00 somewhere.
“Blew out my flip flops; stepped on a pop top; cut my heel; had to hurry back home. But there’s booze in blender and soon it will render that frozen concoction that helps me hang on… Wasting away again in Margaritaville…” (Buffet, Jimmy)
I wonder if National Flip Flop Day coincides with National Podiatrist Day.
Enjoy the weekend. Happy Father’s Day!
