slippers at dinner

a few weeks ago we were somewhere (a restaurant, maybe?), i can't remember where, and these two nicely dressed old people showed up. the man was dapper in an old brown suit, his female companion pretty in a blouse and pants -- but then i looked down. the woman was wearing white flipflops. at that point i shook my head (and in my head i was shaking my tiny fist) at the overcasualization of american society. i don't care if they are covered in diamonds, flipflops are not dressy shoes!
