Jennifer Shirk wrote in her Friday blog post about how she likes to wear flip-flops. I guess it was on my mind while I shopped at Kohl’s because some cool Adidas pink and black flip-flops caught my eye. I had a pair of Adidas flip-flops I loved for a long time but they finally wore out. I couldn’t resist these new ones and saw they were on sale plus I had a 15% coupon. I love them and so comfortable. Okay, I guess they are actually called slides!
Here’s a picture of them but the pink is brighter on mine:
Since I’m giving a signed copy of my chick-lit mystery, A FIERY SECRET, for my present website contest, I thought I’d share a short excerpt from it. I’ve never posted this excerpt and it’s about Catherine wearing flip-flops when Jake unexpectedly arrives at her apartment! Enjoy.
After Scott dropped me off, I changed into a pair of flannel pants with a monkey pattern and a pink T-shirt. I broke open a fortune cookie and from the slip of paper read, Don’t play with fire if you can’t stand the heat cuz you will get burnt. Interesting fortune since I was investigating a gas explosion.
As I chewed the cookie, my phone rang. My heart raced when I saw it was Jake calling. I hoped my voice sounded calm as I said, “Hey. Where are you?” I hoped he wasn’t still in Houston.
“Would you believe I’m right outside your apartment? I came straight here from the airport. I know it’s short notice, but I’d like to see you.”
“I’d like to see you, too.” Thank God, Scott had left half an hour ago.
I shoved my feet into a pair of green flip-flops and ran down the stairs so fast I lost my balance on one step, but I reached out for the railing, stopping the fall. He stood there grinning at me before I opened the glass door, and I knew he saw how I almost fell. I grinned back and opened the door. As soon as Jake stepped inside, he grabbed me and I felt his warm lips on mine.
His hands moved to my butt and he squeezed both cheeks hard. “I like what you have on. It’s soft, like your butt.”
“Are you saying I have a flabby butt?”
He shook his head. “It’s firm but soft.”
