Photo of My Thong Tan

Most of my outdoor work here in Townsville is done while wearing thongs. I lost one thong when I sunk into my backyard after some very heavy rain we had last year, but other than that they have worked out pretty well. They might not offer as much support as I would always like, but they are usually supportive enough, although I don’t usually wear them if I need to be working up a ladder.

I guess that the thong doesn’t provide very good sun protection either, as I have a pretty noticeable thong tan right now. Maybe I should be using more sunscreen …

My Thong TanAs you can see, the tan on my foot is pretty prominent. Last time I had a tan like this it took a few months for it to fade, but that didn’t happen until winter when I started to wear covered shoes again. Right now it’s just too hot for that most days …

Also, in case you didn’t already know, here in Australia a “Thong” is the same thing as a North American “Flip Flop”…

    I agree with Tam, thongs are way too skimpy for for a sun protection. Hey if you try this in Canada, you might get a frost bite tan…

    True, in Canada in the winter it would definitely generate frost bit instead of a tan. That sounds a bit painful to be honest, I might give that a miss and leave the thongs in Australia when I leave…
