I have a couple of stories, but I will just name a few. I am one of the only people that I know who has always attened school barefoot and for the lats 5 years has not worn shoes. I have some very tough soles and it takes a lot to hurt me. I stepped on a thumbtack on my way to the computer for example and never felt it. It wasn't until I was admiring my hard calloused soles. My feet are stull very pretty, just with tiny effective callouses. I always run to school and I cross one field that is full of sharp things. One time I stepped on barbed wire and was bleeding the whole day and gushing for the first hour. Another time I stepped on a non broken bottle and broke it. One day, I went to school and stepped on 6 thumbatcks in 1 day. Just my luck. One of my teachers goes barefoot. We compare feet sometimes. She has very beautieful feet. Very fresh with small slightly yellow callouses. I saw her step on about 5 thumbatcks one time, and later peel them off to tack some stuff on a bulitin board. She uses he foot as a holding place for the tacks. I think that is so cool. I have started doing that too. It is awsome.
