For the last few weeks I have found myself obsessed with people’s feet. Not in a foot fetish sort of way, but in an all out “I can’t believe how easily they walk” sort of way.
I watch my grandson’s feet as he easily hops off his bed. I watch my husband’s feet as he walks around our house. I watch runners feet and notice how far they can bend their entire foot.
At stop signs, I watch the people walking their dogs, laughing with whomever they are with and think “Look how easily that person walks without even thinking about it!”
At restaurants, I notice young women wearing 4 plus inch heels and find myself thinking “that is a lisfranc fracture waiting to happen.”
Instead of looking at the shelves of food at the grocery store, I find myself watching other shoppers feet and notice their gait. I am even noticing if people need new shoes and especially note when someone is wearing brand new shoes!
I see sandals of all shapes and wonder if my foot will ever wear such cute shoes again.
I feel so much foot envy that it is driving me crazy!
