As someone who love music I really like this idea! I tend to have music going where ever I am. A lot of people find it distracting but I’ve always found it relaxing and helps me focus. Not to mention it usually puts me in a very good mood, even if I’m ready to punch a wall. I would have to wonder about the price of these though. I bet their more than one pretty penny’s worth. Then you would have to think of the weather. If you’re out in the rain are they water proof? What if you step in a puddle? It’d be a shame to ruin these because of a careless step on the sidewalk. I’ve never spent more the $40 on a pair of shoes, so if I did buy these I would not want to have to buy them again. I wonder if they come with a remote? That would be cool, convenient, and smart for the sellers.
Okay, now I like rats, and mice, and well any animal really, but this is a little creepy to me. They just look too… dead. They’re not cute, all be it they are fuzzy, but something about sticking my feet into the backs of decaying corpses doesn’t sound all that appealing. Nor does it look appealing in this picture. This whole photo just looks gross to me, and trust me I have a very strong stomach. I don’t throw the “eww” factor around lightly, but in this case I feel it is a must. I guess shoving my feet into the cut open backs of cute, fuzzy and still alive slippers is somehow better than these ones.
So a bit of cultural education lesson with this one. When I first came to Australia I quickly learned that what I called “flip-flops” in the US were called “thongs” here. Now, for my American readers I’m sure, like me, your first thought when you hear “thong” is not a shoe but a pair of panties women wear for that all-day wedgie feeling. 😉 It took me several months to keep from laughing every time I heard someone say a pair of “thongs”. In fact, I still have to remind myself sometimes what it means, and remember to say it myself.
Anywho, the point of this picture you may ask? Here in Australia, thongs (flip-flops) are the footwear for, well, everyone. I kid you not! These things are everywhere. I am currently listening to a jam session of my partner’s band and there are currently seven of us here. Guess how many of us are wearing thongs (flip-flops)? All seven of us! Just to give you a brief idea of how popular these things are.
So needless to say I find this picture not only funny and a “huh?” moment, but also completely relevant and probably a great investment. 😀
