Throwback

When did this:

Thong~a rubber or leather foot covering held in place by a strap between the big and second toes; usually worn casually in warm summer months; likely to cause blisters during the first few wearings.



Become this:

Otter is comfortable with his sexuality. But not his undergarments.
Thong~a fabric undergarment providing minimal coverage, held in place by a strap between the...um, cheeks. Can be worn year long although remains startling to be seen in public.

Thank goodness there have been no reports of blisters.





Continuing with the A to Z challenge. I have nearly made it, people! Only six more letters to go!!

  1. So true Laura - When the kids were old enough to wear "flip flops" i called them "thongs" once. My kids made fun of me. My parents called them "go aheads". Have you every heard that name?

    1. I have never heard of 'go-aheads'! I do get looks when I use the T word rather than flip-flops. I guess it is our 'old people' crutch to bear!!

  2. It's just a guess here, but I am thinking it has to do with the V of the shoe looking like the V of the material, that is how they both ended up being called the 'thong'.
