A Flip Flop Adventure

I begged her, "Take the boots!"
She didn't listen as usual.
I was lost in the water cress.  
Thank goodness she rescued me before I floated to the sea!
I screamed, "Go back!" in my squeaky flip flop voice.
I was buried in quick sand!
The sand was up to her hairy knee.
I had to wait for her to dig me out.
She balanced one legged while holding her camera high.
FINALLY, I was saved from that catastrophe
to be dropped on the edge
when she thought she could jump the sand pit!
Lost again!
I'm not sure I'll survive the summer.
Will someone please tell her to wear boots next time?!
I am flattened with fright!

Oh what a fun post, Gail. Hope you're enjoying your summer even though your flip-flop doesn't seem to be! Jo

Gail, what an adventure. I think boots are necessary in this case. Have a happy day!

Ha! Clearly walking in flip-flops is way more fun than sensible boots.

Gail, so funny! This rain just won't stop, had some again this morning, but they are saying that the clouds will pass us by for the rest of the day.

this would make a great mystery book title, The Case of The Runaway Flip Flop or The Case of She Who did Not wear Boots

Thanks for the gigantic laugh of my day! This so reminds me of my childhood, and I believe I heard my mama...I told you so! Oh yeah.
