Slaps For Work
Whatever you call them: slaps,flip flops, slippers, slippahs, go aheads, sandals yadayadayada, there is some concern on the mainland that casual wear this summer has devolved to worker wearing these wonderful inventions when they go to work.
With 106 degree temperatures who can blame them? In Hawai`i, slaps or slippahs draw little notice because practically everyone wears them, everywhere. We would go barefoot if we could.
At the President's alma mater, kids can still go to school in bare sfeet until sixth grade.
We have enshrined the slippah in our wonderful slippah soaps -- great for guests: they won't want to use them, but they will steal them.
