During class tonight a fellow student gave a presentation. I don't know her personally, but she is very put together. She wears more makeup than I plan on having on in my coffin, but she still looks very nice. Not one hair is out of place, her clothes are crisped to perfection, and her french manicure showed no signs of chipping. She is also very well spoken. She studied her subject well, and formed complete and coherent sentences for all to follow along. The problem was, that while I should have been paying attention to the words that were coming out of her mouth I could not take my eyes off of her toes. She wore open toed shoes that were very cute, they had a nice little kitten heel. Even her pedicure was spotless. Her feet showed no major aesthetic or functional deformities, it was just that her big toes were hanging over the front of her shoes. ?!?!?! They didn't just creep over the edge a little, there was actually about an inch or so of toe that carried over the front of the safety of her shoe. I could not look away. I kept thinking about how she had been walking around all day with her bare toe skin touching everything on the ground. Out of her house, to work, to lunch, in anti-freeze puddles, to class, who knows what toxic or bacterial organisms her toes made out with all day? Upon closer inspection, because her toes were the proverbial train wreck, I could see massive dirt and callouses underneath her big toes. This led me to believe that this peeping toe incident was not a one day fluke. She is a repeat offender. Appearances aside for a moment, how can that be comfortable? Good God. I could not look her in the eye without thinking, at what point in the shoe store did you prance up and down the aisle trying on sandals and say "well, my toes may not conform to the traditional boundaries that society has come to expect for the sole of a shoe, but they are on sale, so I'll charge 'em?" So strange. I don't get it, I am just glad that sandal season is almost over, and she will be forced to put those things away.
