Vale Thong

My dead thong In a moment that really only an Aussie (and perhaps a Westie at that) can truly understand, my thong died last night. The strap finally broke. The sadness comes from the fact that these were just worn in and comfortable. The heel was so thin that light actually passed through the rubber now. As Aussie’s know, your thongs are only truly worn in when you can walk across the grass and feel the bindii thorns in your foot.

So, now I have the task of breaking in new pair of thongs. Sigh.

Vale Thongs!

    Thomo in a thong!!!!!!!! I live in a house with 3 females and my only exposure to thongs are those that consist of a postage stamp size piece of cloth and string. You had me worried for a moment as I wondered what you were about to confess to. Then I looked at the photo and realised you meant a "Flip flop".

    Ah, see in Australia the word "string" is included in the description of the item of clothing you alluded to … string because it is warmer here than the UK so the article of clothing mentioned is briefer 🙂

    Also, flip flop is not a term an Aussie would used for footwear, it is one of the terms we reserve for Politicians and their promises.
