I was at a gym today for the first time in forever. As I walked through I had a flashback to a gym I used to belong to way before marriage and kids. I remember one day there was a sign posted that said, "NO THONGS". And I remember feeling rather indignant as it was the 90s and everyone female was wearing those awful thong leotard things over biker shorts. At least I was...and a bunch of my friends. Anyway, I was upset and brought it to the attention of the management and pretty much asked, "What the heck?!?!" And I was kindly told that my thongs were just fine, they meant flip-flops.
Proud to say I fought for thong rights in the 90s. Even though I didn't need to.
