Sandals

With temps near 80 yesterday and today, I decided to defy 3000 years of conventional wisdom and break out the sandals.  With a bit of text messaging inspiration from a colleague (stanza 2 specifically), I penned this theme song for the occasion (to be sung to the old Sunday School song "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus."):

I have decided to wear my sandals; (3x)
No turning back, no turning back.

The sun before me, the stares behind me; (3x)
No turning back, no turning back.

Though grannies scold me, still I will wear them; (3x)
No turning back, not turning back.

Though colleagues snicker, I will ignore them; (3x)
No turning back, no turning back.

I have decided to wear my sandals; (3x)
No turning back, not turning back.

Happy feet in Beijing…….
