um, duh




You are Barefoot!



You're a total free spirit, go with the flow girl

You can't be restricted by shoes for very long

And unsuprisingly, the same goes for men

Your match is out there - and he's as carefree as you are

Well, everything except that men part... 30+ years with Thor and he's definately Mr. Stable. But they are right on when it comes to shoes; if I can get out of wearing them, I will.
I measure a size five. Yup, a rather small measurement until you consider that all my life those same small tiny feet have been extremely wide. (Mother dear says this is from walking around without shoes. Thanks mom.) I sometimes have to buy shoes 3 sizes up just to get them in a shoe. (ever see an elephant's foot? Small, yet the same size no matter which direction you view it from.) Salesmen have told me to "forget the shoes, just buy the box."
I have been known to take shoes off during social events and hide naked feet under a table for as long as I can. I enjoy the Polynesian cultures more for their perspective on footwear than anything else, well that, and they usually live on an island...
I was famous for teaching seminary every morning in a Sunday suit. But as soon as prayer was said, I kicked off whatever shoes I had on and taught in bare feet. At the end of my first year, there was a "roast" for the teachers. S'mee's part was portrayed quite well by a young person who talked with a very annoying "valley girl", was ridiculously happy happy happy, and barefoot; all at 5:30 in the morning. That's s'mee!

Same here. We live in So Cal for crying out loud! I wouldn't be caught dead in anything other than flip flops or barefoot during the summer!

I am also a barefoot gal. I did everything barefoot, including gardening (stepping on one bee too many has made me reconsider my ways in the garden). Formal events, same thing, I kick off my shoes as soon as I can.

Oh me too, me too, and I love flip flops. I grew up totally barefoot. Running across the street in las vegas, with my feet sqishing in the hot, melted tarmac!

I'll never be a shoe wearer.

In high school, I started a rumor when I very kiddingly said, Hitler invented shoes.
