Recently there's been a lot of talk on this board about getting over the embarrassment of walking around barefoot in public. I was thinking about this today, and realized from past experience that most people don't really seem to noticed or care if you're barefoot or not. Also, if people notice, most of them won't say anything to you about it. I can't remember the last time I saw a barefooter being asked about being barefoot. Most peoples' instincts are just to ignore it. M.
