If you use your thumb to break your fall, your fall may break your thumb.
(That’s what I get for ignoring the lesson about running up stairs two at a time in flip flops.)

Thanks. It looks like I’ll have to put all my big hitchhiking plans on hold.

running upstairs in flip flops? obviously you are not a California kid!!
Now running down stairs in flip flops….thats IMPRESSIVE….

Not a CA kid, but I learned my flip flop skillz in the Phillipines, though since coming to Austin and trading the ‘flops for birkenstocks and granola, I guess I’m out of practice.

You wore shoes in the Phillipines? I’m pretty sure I spent those 3 years of my life blissfully barefoot.

I was barefoot quite a bit, but the pavement was hot.

You had pavement where you lived? That must’ve been the difference. Meanwhile, sorry for the typo — I have some sort of mental block — 2 ls and 1 p or 1 l and 2 ps. I got it now: Philippines.

Yes, lots of pavement. The Navy took good care of us.
I always have to check my spelling on that too. PI is so much easier.
