Trendy? Not Me.

I am not a trend setter; I can’t even be classified as a trend follower. Trend-lagger might come close. Therefore, I am warning all the bare legged women to begin to set aside some money for the new rage in hose. I’m saying that because I went to church last week bare-footed. Well, not really bare-footed. I had a piece of leather-like foot floppers attached to my bare feet. They are called flip-flops. When they first came out they were called thongs and you could get them for $l.99, now they are called flip-flops and they are more like $25.99! I have read that they were responsible for a 20 billion dollar haul during the year of 2009. Now that I have five pair of pretty colored attention getting flip-flops for my feet, I’m predicting the big money people are ready to sell us new footwear; they are lusting for another 20 billion take.

I read a survey four or five years ago which indicated that most women thought their feet were the ugliest part of their bodies. Right in the midst of that mind set, the bare feet five-inch-heel sandals came along. The nail salons had to make room for additional pedicure stations as the hose industry plunged. However, with that pretty polish on the toe-nails, they painful red of blood pulsing toes seemed to be less evident.

Anyway back to my status as a predictor of new trends. Since I have unashamedly now gone to church in flip-flops , the market is sure to change. Maybe it can snazzy-up the bedroom slipper look and sell that to the unsuspecting new trend setters. When that happens I plan to be setting on ready!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Lol! I remember the original flip-flops! My daughter wears the fanciest ones now….I prefer the crocs version of them. Nothing between the toes, but no back strap either.
