I raised the question in the last post about whether flip flops were going out of fashion.
I went to my university yesterday to see my supervisor. As it happened, there were still plenty of students wearing flip flops.
Flip flops may not be as fashionable as they have been in recent years, but they are evidently still very popular with students.
Of course, students tend not to worry much about shoes being worn in their lodgings, but when they are working and paying mortgages on their carpeted homes their attitudes may well change.
