I think I’m the only person who can rip my toenail while walking across a level room with minimal obstacles. I was even wearing shoes!
Let’s back up a moment. (Careful there!)
My shoes slip a little and sometimes come off my heel when I’m walking, but this isn’t a new problem for me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stepped completely out of my shoes. Sometimes it’s because the heels gets caught in something (I like my stilettos) but that’s not a requirement.
So the other day I’m walking to the front of the office when I stepped completely out of my shoe. Here’s where it gets weird. In that split second I managed to step right back INTO my shoe, HOWEVER, my toenail got caught on the edge of the shoe and—you guessed it—ripped. After shouting and shrieking and flailing about, I checked for blood (none), then continued on my way.
I’ve since clipped them, thank you very much. I also noticed I’m sadly in need of a pedicure.
So, your turn. What hooeys have you pulled lately?
