Look at this picture of me sort of hunching, surrounded by all these midgets.
The woman to the far left wears the same size shoe as me. All of the others wear a size or half size bigger.
There are pros and cons to having small feet.
- more sale shoe options
- discount on display model when it's the only one left
- uhm, blog fodder?
No less than six times a year, a COMPLETE STRANGER will comment on the smallness of my feet. It happens in elevators. It happens waiting in line for bathrooms. Please recognize how weird this is. What is the appropriate response?
"Why, how observant..." ?
"Wait, are you a spy? I swear I'm not a Communist" ?
"Thank you?" ?
Those are all valid options. But I prefer this tried and true response:
"No, they're normal; the rest of me is just really gigantic."
