..slap..slap..slap..slap..slap..slap..slap.. What is it with

What is it with this ridiculous fashion at the moment for wearing loose sandals or flip-flops? I’ve just walked through Chichester following a rather large woman wearing such footwear, thoroughly revolted by having my attention forcibly and audibly drawn to her somewhat leathery plates. Yuk.
Please, don’t wear them. They’re not sexy. Or even terribly practical.
