Who else grew up referring to these things
as thongs? When she was little I was always mortifying her by calling them thongs. I could not get it into my head that they were flip flops now.
What I want to know is who in the fashion industry decided it would be fun to mess with my generations heads by renaming a specific piece of underwear (the likes of which were not even imagined at that time) the name that I called cheap summer shoes? I can just imagine that board room meeting now.
