Flip flops are great! I like ’em, what about you?

Drudge today has a little headline with link to an article about how a women’s lacrosse team player wore flip flops to the Whitehouse to meet the President.

Here’s a picture (she’s on the left):

She didn’t think twice about the footwear until she got an e-mail – in all capital letters -from her brother.

“YOU WORE FLIP-FLOPS TO THE WHITE HOUSE????!!!!” he wrote after checking out the picture on the team’s website.

What do you think? Was it inappropriate? I think it’s funny how the President looks like he’s holding crutches.

This one cracked me up. Really it did. It reminds me of the peace corps volunteers we have here. I am not in the US nor am I an american (wooohooo), so I always thought it was some american thing to just rock on with the flip flops regardless of the function.

There was a big function hosted by the Tourism Board here and one of the volunteers got to go. she looked great in a nice top and slacks and then i saw her very same flip flops that she goes to EVERYTHING in. Meetings, parties, get togethers, restaurants and now functions.

I just giggled. Now, to see this girl wear it to the white house. HILARIOUS! Maybe she was trying to send a message to the President… you know, how he “flip flops” on certain issues.. hmmmm.
