A few months ago I wrote about the five most annoying types of posts on Instagram and I mentioned FEET which lots of people agreed with.
No one wants to see your feet and surely not on insta-zoom-close-up mode assaulting them in their social media stream.
Apparently though, some of you, not YOU of course, but some of you think that it doesn't apply to you and yourfeet. Clearly there needs to be a "Footervention" and I really think there is no better person than me.
So, here goes....
5 Reasons Your Feet Are Not Cute, Not Even A Little Bit
I hear you, I have freakishly long toes too. If I ever lose a finger, they'll just cut off a toe and attach it to my hand. When our son was born, the pediatrician looked at us and asked us who had the freakishly long toes that Liam had inherited. Uhhh, both of us...he stood no chance. But, here's the deal, your unnaturally long toes are probably all spindly and spindly baby just ain't cute.
I hear you, I have family members with miniature sized tootsies. It seems cute to you because small things can sometimes strike the world as cute. And, they don't really assault me from 5 feet away, but on closer inspection I just want to know if you shrunk them accidentally in the dryer and how on earth they hold the whole of your body up on a daily basis.
Bad Polish/No Polish
I am not above a peeling polish job or a little au natural toenail action. But for crying out loud, put some socks over those neglected phalanges and put some socks on and then put those socked feet in closed toed shoes. But back away from the camera. No. One. Wants. To. See. That. EVER!
So you stubbed your toe, have nail fungus that looks like the baby Jesus, just cut your foot and the stitches look like the mascot for your favorite NHL team. NO! NO! NO! No one wants to see your oozing or your stitches or whatever kind of malady your foot has. If they have told you they don't mind, they are lying to be polite.
You know the photo. The mom on vacation with 7 children posts a picture of her feet up looking out at the untouched beach, pristine cruise ship pool, etc. as if she is just relaxing. Her perfect children off to the side not shouting "Mom. Mamma. Mommy. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom." Right?! We don't believe you!
