Thongs, flipflops, whateverWhen I was growing up, thongs were the semi-sandals that you wore on your feet, pictured to the right. Nowadays, they’re called “flipflops” and if you call them “thongs” in public, you get sharp looks and people think you’re having a stroke when you try to explain what you were talking about.

Sigh. The times, they are a-changin’.

  1. Just call them slippers like they do in Hawaii and then a Haole will have no clue what you are talking about 🙂
