One day my Momma was visiting our home.  It must have been a bright and sunshiny day because we we're talking about footwear that we wear during the summer time.  Mom always called flipflops "thongs" in fact I am pretty sure the entire world called them that until sometime maybe in the 90's it was changed.  I don't really know when it was changed.   

 

Mom and I had been having our discussion on flip flops when suddenly my girls came into the room with us and one of them said,

 

"Huh?" 

 

So Mom began telling them the last part of the conversation.....

 

"I can't wear thongs anymore because they are just too uncomfortable and now they just fit too tightly and I can hardly walk with them on."  

 

I could see the girls' faces turning the various shades of red and then Lyssa said,

 

"Umm K well, I have to go." 

 

 And then Ashley who was laughing burst out,

 

"Granny thats just wrong on so many levels."   

 

Of course Mom was stunned that Ash would say such a thing to her and me and Lyss burst out laughing too and finally I managed to explain to Mom that to the girls thongs are those new fangled underwear that girls wear.   You all have seen them haven't you?
