cross your toes

Our dog, Charlie, is asleep on my bed. He is huge and covered in hair and I kind of really don't want him to be there but I haven't the heart to push him off. Also I think I just accidentally summed up how I deal with a lot of my relationships.

Can you guys cross your toes? I can't and I didn't know until a couple of days ago that you're meant to be able to. I was kind of worried that I was a freak because everyone I asked about it, including the girl in the coffee shop, can cross theirs but then a friend pointed out that being able to cross your toes is neither sexy* nor profitable and therefore I don't need to feel bad. He can cross his fucking toes though.

*unless you have a foot fetish, maybe? I try to be open-minded but I really don't get foot fetishes. Shoes yes, feet no. Feet are gross. Can't believe there is 'foot job' porn. But then I don't get Simpsons porn either so maybe I'm just too damn vanilla for this strange, sexy world.

Have you guys seen the movie Up? I watched it last night after hearing everyone go on about how awesome it was (except Zach who had some kind of problem with the talking dogs) and it was actually pretty awesome. I don't know if I'd watch it again and again and again but if you're looking for something to watch - especially if you have small children in tow - then it's better than Ice Age 3 or Shrek 4.5 or Toy Story: Redemption or whatever.

There is something really wrong about this image, it makes me glad to not be able to cross my toes. I think it's the background rug. I imagine all you foot fetishists are pretty excited right now.

No - actually we're also totally gagging.

It is probably more freakish to be asking strangers about their ability to cross toes, than to lack that ability. It does come in handy if you need to pick up something from the floor and you are too lazy/your skirt is too short to bend over.

If it makes you feel better, I too am a foot freak. One of my second toes is longer than the adjacent great toe, whereas the other second is shorter than its neighbour. I think I inherit one foot from each parent.

Um, I can't cross my toes either! I never knew that was weird. I can only do big toe over second but I don't think that counts. At least you know you aren't alone!

Random - I watched Up yesterday too. My favourite part was SQUIRREL

I used to think feet were gross too, but I've come to accept them. Summers are much more enjoyable now.

I can't cross my toes, or my eyes.. just my fingers :)

I can't cross mine.

Actually I have no control over my toes AT ALL. Can't even move them individually. What is wrong with me?
