So . . . I went without shoes for a day. It wasn’t really that big a sacrifice–it was a nice day, the WoFfice carpet is less than a year old, and I like going barefoot. Other than cold toes, I can’t say that I suffered at all. Got a few odd looks at Kroger, but that’s about it. I don’t know if it raised much awareness, but it was fun being one of the group of shoe-free people in at our staff meeting.
Still, had I not been on smooth cement and clean carpet most of the day it would have been much less fun. And the people who don’t have shoes rarely get such nice surfaces to walk on.
So the next time you stand in your closet deciding which pair of shoes to wear, take a moment to say a prayer for those who don’t have any shoes at all. I’m going to.
This is not a sponsored post, I just share these things for your reading pleasure and my personal entertainment. (Gotta say that to keep the Feds happy.)
