This is about as mundane and pointless a thread as I can manage.
At first glance, my feet seem normal. My second toe is longer than my big toe, but otther than that, no apparent oddities. However, in the last week I’ve realized three weird things about my feet.
- Without even knowing I do this, when I’m lying down with my legs bent at the knee and my feet flat on the ground, I automatically tuck my second (and longest) toe under my foot. My physical therapist freaked out when he saw this and said, “Oh my god, are you missing a toe?!?” Nope, it’s just tucked under the ball of my foot, though upon examination it really does look like I have no toe. I didn’t even realize I was doing it.
Apparently I do it a lot, because tonight one of my friends also noticed and commented on it. Again, had no idea I was doing it. I asked my friends to all try to do it and none of them could. They said it hurt to even try. Can any of you do it?
I can also roll my toes to make a loud snapping sound on the ground and can do other tricks with my second toe, like cross it over my big toe. What the hell is that? Can any of you do any of these things? Of all the pointless talents a person can have, this must be the lamest.
My heels are peeling and they have been all summer. I don’t go barefoot and I wear open shoes all the time. I’ve been using a pumice stone, razor blades, heavy duty special foot moisturizer every morning, Kerasal every night, but they still peel. The skin cracks and just comes off in strips, whether I screw with them or leave them alone. They don’t ooze or smell or anything, but they do bleed when the skin cracks too far. It hurts. Do anyone else’s feet have this problem? How have you solved it?
For the first time this summer, I wore shoes that tie on. I just got these cool boots and it was pretty cold out, so I put them on. I guess I tied them too tightly, because when I took 'em off, I had hives on the tops of my feet. This has happened before, but by now it’s just overload on the foot weirdness.
Anyone else have weird feet?
