Imagine this: The weather is starting to get warm & the sun is shining brightly in the brilliant blue skies, the leaves are a stunning green & being calmly pushed by a gentle wind, and the birds are happily chirping. All of a sudden the school principal decides of a great safety awareness announcement that must be made. So, without doing any research; the principal got on the all school speaker system with a lovely PSA that went something like this, "Attention students: Even though the weather is getting warmer you are not allowed to wear THONGS to school. Again, for safety reasons please do NOT wear thongs to school. We will be checking every morning to make sure every student is following this dress code. Thank You."
She had no idea that "thongs" are now known as "flip-flops" & that thongs now refer to a very specific type of pantie ... I will say no more :)
