Flip Your Sole

PhotobucketBeing that it is summer, I know it is not just the New York area that is laden with flip flop wearing people running to and fro all day and night. Shoot, I find flip flops to be the footwear of choice even indoors (a different pair though - my house shoes don't leave the house!). But did you know what's lurking at the bottom of your soul sole? :)

Check out this article from NY Daily News for more details. I don't know if this will change my usage of flip flops as the footwear of choice... but maybe I'll think of a better way to clean them more regularly?

That film of grime that coats your feet at the end of a day of flopping around town is some dangerous dirt.

Lab tests of two reporters' flip-flops, worn for four days, revealed a potentially deadly germ - Staphylococcus aureus - lurking on the rubber.

If it seeps into a cut on your foot - an entirely common summer affliction - the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and, if left untreated, kill you.

Ironically enough, today is the day that I am wearing flip flops after a flat wearing hiatus...

What about you? Are you as guilty as I am with this offense?
