7 Uses For Flip-Flops All Maltese People Need To Know About
They're more than just the most comfiest thing to wear in summer
Anyone who doesn't think flip-flops are the most amazingly comfortable form of footwear ever created by man is frankly, mad. They are the pyjamas of feet – no one can dispute that.
But we reckon they can be used to make life better in more ways than just providing foot-comfort. Here's a few other ways flip flops contribute to the world.
1. Portable 24/7 fly-swatter
There's nowhere on the planet that requires a constantly available fly-swatter but Malta.
Okay, maybe Gozo.
2. Instant wobbly-table corrector
Seeing as it's a scientific fact that you will be the person seated at the wobbliest table in the entire restaurant every time you go out to eat, flip-flops are a life saver.
3. Traffic-jam fan
Some of us don't have (read: can't afford) to have our car A/C blasting on full while we wait in traffic for hours in the summer heat. Flip-flops provide fanning respite in the most maddening of moments.
4. Powerful parenting tool
Anyone who's ever had their mum/dad slap a flip-flop against their thigh while scolding them will know that that's the sound of utter terror.
With impromptu BBQs happening practically every other day in summer in Malta, flip-flops are always ready to offer themselves as perfect fire-fanning devices.
6. General beach-shield
Scooping up jellyfish, keeping rizzi at bay, providing a buffer between you and the 1000 degree-sand.
7. Beach pillow
And when all else fails, you can always rely on your flip-flop to rest your tired head on.
