Alright ladies, it’s that time of the year again. Just a friendly reminder!!

Please raise your big toes and repeat after me:

My Sisters (the open toed shoe pledge),

As a member of the cute girl sisterhood, I pledge to follow the rules when I wear sandals and other open toe 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 shave the hairs off my big toe.

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’s 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 kid’s sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the 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. If I have been privy to the magic that is foot soup, I will share that knowledge and experience with the non-initiated.

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.

I will promise to go to my local beauty school at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $10 and worth every penny)

I will promise to throw away any white/off white sandals that show signs of wear…nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

Too funny! And I'll let you in on a secret: one advantage of growing
older is you no longer have hair on your legs ot toes. :D Hooray! I knew there HAD to be at least one advantage.

Haha Lisa--I'm gonna hide my feet when I see you coming. You've got me pegged (especially the part about touching up the polish on the big toe. . .)
