Fishing for Flip Flops

In a fitting end to the school year, we sent our children off to the bus stop
only to have one daughter come running back and yelling,

“My flip flop fell down the drain. I was just walking and it fell.”


It just fell, right off her foot, through the storm drain grate and down eight feet.


After school, they fished it out.

    Oh that’s funny. My flip flop got stuck on the library floor the other day. The library was pulling up carpet which left a sticky residue underneath. I waltzed right onto that sticky floor without thinking and soon became stuck! I thought I would have to leave my precious flip flop behind, but I was finally able to yank it up.

    haha. Not to embarass them, but I’d be curious which girl it was 🙂

    So funny! I’m impressed that they were able to get it out!
