Floating away ..... Am I stupid?

Some friends went "over the border" to have a few drinks tonight. (More on what that means in another post.) When we got home I went down to the pool and took a plastic chair and sat on it close to the water's edge so I could cool my feet down. I watched the lights slowly going out all over the surrounding flats. Suddenly I waved my feet around and my thongs/flip flops came off into the water. I grabbed one and retrieved it with my hands. The other floated away; I couldn't reach it. I watched it float into the middle of the pool and gradually stop moving.

I stood, fully clothed on the edge, watching it, waiting for it to move again. Eventually it started to rain.

"What the hell," I thought; and jumped in. I retrieved it and retired, dripping, to my flat.

What would you have done? Abandonned a useful piece of footwear ... come back later in your Speedos ... stripped off ...?

Papy - not your notion of watersports. lol
