Day 5: Things I’ve Stepped In

feet-walking-barefoot

Though its the 9th of July, it’s only my 5th official day barefoot due to a family emergency earlier in the month.  (I will extend my days into August to make the full month!)   I’ve been walking around town and consequently I’ve been stepping in things – lots of things.  You honestly don’t realize all the things your shoes save your feet from until you can FEEL them.  Some of these were easier to shake off (both physically and mentally) than others.  Here is the list in no particular order:

  • water
  • unidentified blue liquid (in a store)
  • chewed gum
  • dog poop
  • fish guts (walking on the docks)
  • someone else’s used band-aid (stuck to my foot)
  • mud
  • oil
  • grease
  • unidentified liquid on concrete

I have taken for granted the protection my shoes have afforded me from the gross, wet, mystery liquids of life.  I have a new appreciation.

As always – don’t forget to check out THE SHOE THAT GROWS, my ORIGINAL BLOG POST (explaining the what and why of my challenge), and the DONATION PAGE.  I am doing this to raise funds for the shoes….so go and give!  🙂
