I Have Finally Succumbed



The flip-flops and shorts are on. It turns out Englishmen have legs after all.

10.22pm EST: Update! We went over to Town Point Park to watch fireworks and I tripped on the metal base of a Road Closed sign in the street. My toe bled. I am not yet skilled in the wearing of the flip-flops.

Dear Brad, I've been wearing shorts for ages round here. Too bloody hot and humid to wear anything long. Is it cooler on the coast?

Dear Neil, Weather has been too hot around here lately. I'm surprised he didn't go to the flip flops earlier. Except I saw him cut his toe and cuss in front of small children - so, i kinda undderstand.

Dear Neil and Brad, I feel really bad about the cussing and the kiddies. I think a reflex reaction is understandable and, being British, it came out as a swear. Still, the children are our future and deserve better.

P.S. So, your name's Neil, huh? I'm halfway there. Apologies BTW, for my part in getting off on the wrong foot with you. Stupid misunderstanding AFAI am concerned.

Yeah, I was a little distracted by the sight of an atrractive woman in Norfolk. Then it rained frogs!

Thanks for the tissue and I hope I didn't get blood on your blanket.

I've seen an Irishman's legs/feet. Can't imagine it could be any worse.

Legs are overrated. Back home in blighty we're still rocking the tweeds and small indian children with big fans look.
Also, flipflops make an annoying noise and are little use when it comes to playing football.

M - no problem.

As to shorts - I always thought wearing shorts with long socks pulled up was a uniquely British phenomenon but they all seem to be out this year. Ick. That, and all the white puffy flesh that appears in early summer - not just legs. More ick.

Swearing - pas devant les enfants? Bullshit. They have to get used to people swearing some time and when they cut themselves seems as good a time as ever. They'll get over it. Mine did.
