Putting My Best Feet Forward

Feet

Internet, meet my feet. Feet, be prepared for some weird Google searches.

These feet of mine are not particularly gorgeous, but they're not really ugly either. To be honest, I quite like them just as they are. I particularly like them sans socks and shoes. I'm a big fan of stripey socks and gorgeous, peep-toed, man-seducing heels and, hell yes, I want to marry the person who invented flip-flops. But really, I would rather not have anything on my feet. At all. Ever.

My grandmother is much the same way. We walk through the snow barefoot, across the scorching sand barefoot, to Mordor barefoot, and around the office barefoot. And that last part seems to BOGGLE SOME MINDS.

I can't tell you how many times I get stopped each week by people wanting to comment on my foot status. No shoes? In the office? No way! (Or . . . "Zomg, you're wearing shoes today! What do you mean you already knew?") Of course, these are the same people who poo-poo my decision to play piano barefoot for church services or my right to wear flip-flops in the winter. Hi. None of your business.

I guess I'm really only bothered by it because I cannot for the life of me figure out what it must be like to be so incredibly boring — no hobbies, no internet connection, no weird birth mark — that you have nothing worth conversing about except my current footwear situation. Get a cat or a dictionary or some knitting needles or something. Good heavens.

Of course, if my feet had their own Twitter account, that would be totally different. That would be interesting.

Aww, you have cute feets!! I'm also a fan of going barefoot, but I find flip-flops to be quite uncomfortable! Strange, eh?

(And I've been sitting here trying to figure out your polish color. Hmmm... Looks familiar, but I can't place it. I'm a failure!!)

Scrangie: OPI "Your Villa or Mine?" is the polish. It's a bit of a pain in the butt to apply (goopy and runny all at once), but I refuse to get rid of it because I like summery colors. Plus, hello, it totally coordinates with my sheets, which is wicked important.

If you start a Twitter account for your feet, I'm going to pee my pants laughing.

That said, your feet are adorable. And that polish is great... I totally have a two-dollar bottle of something-something that is almost the same color. It's totally a departure from my normal light pinks, but a girl's gotta have a great red to spice things up.

The newf = barefoot always and demands that I be as well to quell his fear and disgust of socks.

It looks like both of your feet are sticking out of the same pantleg. Cute feet, though.

I prefer wearing nothing on my feet, too, but my uncontrollable disgust for saliva requires me to wear something outdoors at all times because, holy, people love spitting on the ground. I love wearing flip-flops and sandals, but they wind up making my ankle hurt, so I am sometimes forced to wear Proper Footwear if I go out for more than a 15-minute walk. Torture!
