Thoughtful Thursday: Sandal Weather
May 26, 2011
Sandal weather is suddenly upon us. I’ve worn socks and shoes, or usually socks and boots, every day for a loooong time. My feet are not ready for sandals, as I am in desperate need of a pedicure — or at least a DIY painting.
Why have I let it go so long? Not because it’s been not-sandal weather, as usually my toes are red regardless of the weather. Not even because of Burrito and Tamale, though free time for grooming is shorter than it used to be.
It’s because my last pedicure was in December, with my mother getting a pedicure in the chair next to me.
I haven’t been able to bear to take the polish from that pedicure off, no matter how overdue it has been.
I’ve sort of been waiting it out, knowing that it would grow out/chip off eventually. I’m not sure what I think will happen once that polish is totally gone. I’m also not sure what I think will happen if I take the polish off myself.
It’s irrational and pointless, and I know it, and I hold on anyway.
Are you holding on to anything that serves no purpose, that you don’t even understand?
