Patriotic Toes Series
A few years ago, a friend in my office bought some patriotic swag to wear at work to get people into the spirit of the 4th of July. I rolled my eyes at it but then went home to get a pedicure and this happened:
Last year, I was getting my July pedicure and I decided to make an upgrade. But before we talk about that, why doesn’t Word Press think that pedicure is a word? Surely, the creator of the spell check feature has seen painted toes before. Come on, it’s a real word! But, I digress….
As great as they may look, the red shoes which I spent too much money on, have flawed velcro. So, I have probably worn them three times in three years. I know I should take them to a shoe repair place but the last time I took shoes to get fixed, they ended up more damaged than when I brought them in. But, I digress. I texted many people this picture to wish them a Happy 4th.
For my high school reunion last year, I actually had my toes done with a variation of the school colors. They were pretty famous toes. Dare I say, celebrity toes, if you will. This picture is on the masthead of my high school reunion blog.
I feel bad for one of my friends who informed me that he hates toes. To his displeasure, anytime I get a cool pedicure, he is one of the first people I will text the photo to and hope, for his benefit, that he has already digested his food.
I have the hardest time getting sandals. The bottom straps on both of these sandals has sub par velcro, as well. So, I have to strap the top one really tight just so I can walk around in them. I look a bit unkempt, but at least my toes look good.
This year, I found new sandals on sale. They have a bit of chunky heel so I am still looking for the perfect sandal with sticky velcro so that I can let my toes breathe and walk around in comfort for an extended period of time!
Here is this year’s edition of Patriotic Toes and Happy 4th of July, everyone!
