a flip flop adios


2 bucks 2 years 2 shoes, and i hate to see them go; i try to always keep the blue ones, the teal ones, the aqua, the turquoise, i never have a problem tossing black ones or pink, but.  comes a time when nothing gets them clean anymore.

these were the ones i was wearing when the sailboat tossed us overboard 3 times; one was lost for a day but finally floated home and the other got shoved all kattywumpus up against the bottom of the jeep's driver's seat, where i'd kicked it off to make it easier to drive, and so they are unevenly dirty and permanently so, and they will have to go.  i have others this color, at least kind of this color, and i have thrown out blue ones before, and these were walmart cheap, and there is no reason to even think 2ce about it, but i do because colors are either in style or not, and it may be 10 years before this color comes around again, and i may be forced to maybe wear red, which, unless it is high heels or cowboy boots, i just cannot do.  i am held hostage by the whims of possible fashion.  almost.
