THE AGONY OF DA FEET ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA

It was "Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Hello" at 7th and Montana yesterday as an Anonymous Newcomer decided that her feet deserved a chair of their own. I might not have noticed but for the fact that she pushed her makeshift footstool close to my table, crossed one leg over the other and -- how do I put this kindly? -- she smelled like low tide. Moments after sitting down, she called someone on her cell phone and left a message: "Hey, honey," she said, "I hope you're awake. I'm just calling to make sure you got out of bed!" Lady, let me give you some unsolicited advice: Go shove your feet in "honey's" face. If that doesn't wake him up, nothing will ...!

It always amuses me how some people can make themselves at home anywhere, without regard for anyone else. (Hugs)Indigo

Oh sweetheart, Now that was funny! You took me right there, and reminded me of my little brother. He had the worst feet! I sware if when he took off his socks he were to throw them against the wall THEY WOULD HAVE STUCK! Dried out they would have shattered!...I do belive he's out grown it, (gosh, I hope so anyway)__=^..^=__Kittie
