MILWAUKEE – Gone are the days when flip flops were content with lazing around on sandy beaches or floating around aimlessly in swimming pools. This summer, these liberated footwear are breaking the mold and stepping up their game. They’ve ditched their typical one-size-fits-all mentality in hopes of finding “The One” this year at the world’s largest music festival.
Despite their best efforts, the flip flops struggled to make a lasting connection. Potential solemates seemed more interested in dancing to the music, indulging in deep-fried delicacies, and snapping selfies than in forming a meaningful relationship. Yet, the resilient flip flops refused to give up hope.
Rumors spread that a few flip flops had even resorted to changing their identities to sandals in a desperate attempt to attract attention. However, their plan backfired when they were mistaken for wannabe Birkenstocks and promptly labeled as fashion imposters.
So, if you find yourself at Summerfest this year, spare a thought for those courageous flip flops. Give them a chance, and who knows, you might just find yourself swept off your feet (or foot) by the perfect summer romance.
