NO FREAKING EMERGENCY FLIP FLOPS, THAT’S WHAT! (“See?” I said to him. “There’s a reason I do these things!”)
It really wasn’t that big of a deal – dinner was our only stop anyway. Still, it was a bit odd to walk around a restaurant with one bare foot, carrying a broken flip flop.

or religious observances; Likewise, avoid thinking of oneself as being either superior, inferior, or
equal to others. The wise let go of the self and being free of attachments they depend not on
knowledge. Nor do they dispute opinions or settle into any view. For those who have no wishes for either extremes of becoming or
non-becoming, here or in another existence, there is no settling into the
views held by others. Nor do they form the least notion in regard to views seen, heard, or thought
out. How could one influence those wise ones who do not grasp at any views?
