How flip flop sandals can save your life, a short essay assignment by Shaun Huberts.
I’ll make this as simple as possible…
Public showers (but also including hotel pool areas, rock star arena change-rooms, guest rooms and green rooms) are gross. Sometimes even filthy.
Do not enter these places on a regular basis without expectations for developing some sort of foot rot. That is unless you wear protection. That’s correct, this is a safety message brought to you by your local podiatrist and me! WEAR FLIP FLOPS! They are so easy to travel with, they are light, they dry quickly and they’re cheap! They will protect your feet from the grime that may sleeping on the floor of that old venue shower just waiting to climb aboard your foot, dig deep into your skin or toe nails and infect the shizz outta ya! Ok sorry, now I’m going for the shock value message, but it’s only because I care. Oh and did I mention sandals were cheap?! As in even cheap enough for musicians. Yes, that cheap.
So no excuses, pick up a cheap pair for your next trip, vacation or tour, and at least save yourself from contracting swine flu? This lesson was also brought to you by the letter ‘W’… as in warts. I’ve said enough.
for more thoughts and advice, you can always browse through my book?! Until next time,
