Flip Flop Exchange

Hey guys! A few of my friends just sent me a letter that has incorporated me into a flip flop exchange. You get a letter, and send a pair of flip flops to the person listed as "#1". You then move the person who is listed as "#2" to the "#1" slot. You then move your name to the number two slot, and send the letter to 6 of your friends. The letter makes its way around to a bunch of people, and in the end, everyone ends up with 36 pairs of flip flops, for the price of one. Well, I have recieved 2 letters, and coming up with enough people to send the letter to who will actually keep the exchange going has been a little challenging.

So, I immediately thought of you guys. I know that you all are an AMAZING group of fun people, so I was wondering if you would like to be a part of this. What we are trying to do is get people and shoes from all over the country and the world.

If any of you guys are interested, just send me your name and address to me in an instant message, and you'll be getting a "Flip Flop" exchange letter in the next week or so.

Thanks for your support of this fun summer activity, and enjoy your flip flops, all 36 of them!

-Lauren-

if you have angered someone to the point of fisticuffs, you should first walk a mile in his shoes. if you still disagree, at least you are a mile away, and he has no shoes...

Sorry, it sounds like a modern variation on the old chain letter phenomenon.

Thanks Cookingblondie - but I don't know if you will get much help here - we're a tired old bunch (ok, me anyway) and don't want to put forth the effort. I hope you get a bunch of neat flip flops though.

Can you believe, my sister tried to get me into one of these, but, with panties??


She is crazy. I don't want someone else sending me personal clothing like that. She actually did it too. I never asked her if she ever got them all. I don't want to know.

Flip flops might be fun, but, I just don't have the time, or close enough to a store to get them, sorry.
I hope you get lots of cute ones.
