When Rachel and I were walking from the marathon bus drop back to our hotel room Sunday, I commented that I couldn't wait to take a shower. You wouldn't believe the salt dried on the body! Rachel agreed. The conversation went something like this:
Rachel: I can't wait to get home and put on my thongs!
Me: Really?!? I have never found them that comfortable. I am constantly trying to shift them around - but that I do have many friends that swear by them and say that's all they'll wear.
Rachel: Oh. I couldn't live without them. I have both a black pair and a white pair because they go with everything. It's all I wear!
Me: You have just two pairs?
Rachel: Yes. That's really all I need. I can't believe you don't wear them?!? You must be the only person I have ever met who doesn't wear them!
Me: Are we talking about the same thing???
Answer: NO! Thongs in Australia = flip flops. We laughed long and hard on that one :)
