The Open Toed Shoe Pledge

As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.

I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

I will sand down any mounds of skin before they! turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes ( I guess this applies to Crocs nowadays). This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.

I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $15 or 20 and worth EVERY penny).

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

I take it from the first half of your post, spring is in the air, and from the second part, you're an optimist. Have a great Friday and a great weekend. Kitchen and hubby update?

I'm with you on the sandal thing! I love love love shoes and it's one of my pet peeves to see someone wearing shoes that don't fit. I go barefoot whenever possible so a sandal is a good thing for me when I have to wear shoes. I have tattoos on my feet so picking the perfect pair is an art form...lol. I love flip flops and I love anything with a heel. Shoot, I just love shoes.

Hi Dixie ~~ Some great advice there
and some fun things. You are right to be proud of your son, a hero in the making. I had a great few days
with my brother, and hope he is near home now. Glad you enjoyed the Bill Gates thing. He is a clever man!!
Take care, Dixie, Love, Merle.
