"I hate flip-flops."
S-R reporter Amy Cannata came to my desk this morning to vent about these kids today and their flip-flops. Once upon a time, flip-flogs (did anyone else call them "thongs?") were reserved solely for the beach, but are now everyday footwear.
The problem - teenagers don't walk anymore, she said, they "shuffle."
I can't help but wonder if my posture and gait was permanently altered by the days of untied sneakers.
Question: Is it the shoes? It's gotta be the shoes...
