(On your feet, that is!) About a month ago, I bought a pair of those Brazilian made PRL flip-flops with the leather sole and grosgrain-covered strap from the Grapevinehill webstore, because the Adidas soccer sandals I had been wearing as house shoes were well past their prime. Since they came in, I've been wearing them for maybe an hour or two a day, strictly at home and never standing for longer than it takes to cook an omelette. For whatever reason, I decided to wear them to the grocery store today. Bad idea! First, operating the pedals properly in these shoes, especially the clutch, was a nightmare. The back edge kept getting caught as I moved my foot from the dead pedal to the clutch. So my driving was nowhere near as smooth as it usually is. Then I parked where I always do in the parking lot - on the highest ground, so as to be sure that any unattended carts will roll away from my care - and walked the 200m or so to the store. By the time I was walking back, the skin between my biggest two toes was in searing pain, and my ankles weren't happy either. Do they ever get comfortable or are they strictly for the minimal walking, never-have-to-shift crowd?
