The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Positively sandalous

It's flip-flop season, and CT is not thrilled:

There are really not that many pretty feet out there. In fact, there are far too many downright ugly ones on display, thanks to this open-toed madness. No matter how many $75 pedicures or toerings administered, ugly feet remain ugly feet. The biggest shame of it is, most women are kidding themselves to the contrary (although I suspect that, deep down, they know they’re not pulling it off).

I have no reason to think I'm especially fortunate or especially pervy, but the below-ankle scenery around here is actually pretty good these days, although multiple toerings (I know one woman who used to wear three and now wears four) probably would qualify as overkill.

Besides, every pair of flip-flops worn means someone is not wearing these hideous fur boots.

I sooo don't understand the "ugly foot" thing. Like, unless you have jungle rot or something, most feet are pretty normal.

Admittedly, he lives in Florida, where I suspect the incidence of jungle rot might be higher than it is here in Soonerland, but his reaction does seem a bit extreme.

I discussed this issue with a coworker of the female persuasion, and eventually I came to this conclusion: "I will happily look at any body part the owner is willing to show me, and I will be grateful for having had the opportunity."

Ah, I feared I would come off as such (especially with the linkbacks to the previous limb-related posts).

We all have our quirks. It's not like I make a habit out of rating the footsies. I tend to look down a lot, so maybe it's too much exposure.
