Flip Flap Taxi

At first, when the taxi driver was making comments about his flip flaps, I thought he was referring to the shoes on his feet. A few minutes into the conversation, however, I realized that he was actually talking about his collection of solar powered "flip flap" toys on the dashboard. He was rather proud of his plastic car decorations in the form of various animals, some cartoon characters, a plant, and Santa Claus. As he rattled on and on about his assortment of flip flaps, I felt like one of the characters with my head nodding up and down in accord.
