I was inspired today by the man in the grocery store wearing flip flops. You sir, could quite possibly be dedication incarnate. Though we currently face a possible 3+ inches of snow tomorrow and it is a mere 30 degrees here, you refuse to let that stop your celebration of the first day of Spring. I believe that kind of dedication deserves a cocktail, so cheers to you flip flop man.
