Flip flops and high heels. The yin and the yang of womens shoes. And my two favorite types of footwear. I mostly just want to be barefoot which means flip flops are for me. However, I am really
short horizontally challenged so the higher the heels the more like a big kid I can feel.
Of course, sometimes shoes are an acquired taste. I wasn’t always toddling around on 4 inch heels or gripping the thong of a flip flop between my toes. It wasn’t until after college that I really embraced my love of the high heel and as I’ve gotten older they’ve gotten taller. And flip flops. . .well they grew on me like a fungus. I used to hate the feel of that thing between my toes. However, once I embraced the flip flop I realized how awesome they are. They used to be about the only shoes I wore all year round when I lived in a warm climate. Alas, living back in the Great White North means I only have a small window for flip flops.
Foods some times take me awhile to acquire a taste for, too. Generally I am not a picky eater but there are a few things that I had to learn to love. Blueberries being one of them. I love most berries (not strawberries) but blueberries were always the most boring berry to me.
