The Open Toed Shoe Pledge

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge
Summer time is upon us and it is time to go over the rules for the open toed shoe!

 I pledge to follow these rules when wearing sandals & open-toed 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 wax the hairs off my toes and the tops of my feet.

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker,
 mother, or 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 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. 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. 


  1. I remember this from last year - so funny and TRUE!!! Mind if I borrow it??

    How are feeling? Everything good with your surgery??

    1. Yes, mam! Pass it on!
      I am doing well, thank you for asking. Everything is pretty much back to normal.

  2. Haha! Josh is terrible at the last one!

    1. LOL - and he wears them half on and half off sometimes - when he is just standing still - ever notice that? it is funny~
