Facebook not FEETBOOK
Posted September 27, 2012
Okay, I hope I don't offend some of my friends on Facebook who have done this...but I've been thinking about this for quite a while and here it is.
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD DON'T POST PICTURES OF YOUR FEET ON FACEBOOK!
I've seen people post pictures of their feet after a pedicure - or just for the heck of it - over and over again on their Facebook timelines. Let's face it, most of the population does not have nice looking feet so puh-lease - unless you're a foot model or something which is a low percentage of us - for the most part, feet are one of our ugliest features.
Same goes for open toed shoes. If they are hideous, cover em' up. No one wants to see that. A couple of weeks ago, my minx had come off (it's this heat activated adhesive things that go on your nails in all different patterns) and left a bit of adhesive behind that I couldn't get off. I purposely wore closed toed shoes until I put on a color to conceal it. I'm not going to subject anyone to that.
Here's one I firmly believe in - The Summer Shoe Pledge.
My feet were okay (but I still wouldn't post pix of them) until I got into competitive ice skating, and then they became "utilitarian" and it's apparent how hard they worked during those years. The only time I 'share' my feet is if someone asks me what cool minx pattern I have. Usually I direct them to the minxnails.com site to look but got "I want to see what it looks like on your feet." Immediately after sending such pix, I deleted them. I don't want to look at pictures of feet; mine or anyone else's!
I liken this to Sunday mornings when I am reading the magazine section while having breakfast, and they have all of those weird "toe braces" that they advertise pictorially. Eeeew...slam dunks the appetite every time.
