I have archives?

When we were at the bowling alley on Saturday, I did a lot of people watching.

I hadn't seen so many articles of inappropriate clothing since I spent a few hours in the emergency room back in January.

Let's just say I thought spandex went out in the 80's.

And the pre-bowling footwear. I'm speechless.

So I thought I would run something from the archives. (I have archives??)

It's spring and soon it will be summer and I think we ladies need a little reminder in the sandal wearing department.

This was originally posted June 2008

The Summer Sandal, Open Toed Shoe Pledge.

Raise your right hand and repeat after me....

I promise to always wear sandals that fit my feet. My toes will not hang over the front nor will my heal spill over the back. The sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

I promise to go the the salon at the beginning of the season and have a real pedicure. They are not expensive and worth every penny.

If I do not have time for a pedicure, I promise to sand down the mounds of skin before they harden and turn colors.

I will go polish free or vow to keep my polish fresh, intact and chip-free. (No touch ups or painting just your big toe)

I will NOT wear pantyhose with my sandals.

I will inform those who say it is OK to wear hose with sandals other wise.

If a strap breaks, I will toss the sandal in the trash!

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholls.

I promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure they actually flip and flop. NOT slide or drag my feet.

Good luck in keeping the vow of your pledge, sisters. Please keep this letter as a reminder of the vow you have just taken. If need be we will form a support group.

Happy summer sandal wearing!

Amen,Amen,Amen! Could you also write something about exposed belly flab, exposed love handles, exposed bra straps, quadruple boobs, and inappropriate wearing of thongs? Gee! TLC's "What Not To Wear" could have a field day with some of the ugliness I've seen around here!
