I inherited the family signature from my father’s side – Broad feet, fleshy toes.
It wasn’t a pleasant thing to own a pair of wide feet, plus 10 meaty toes to come with the package. I wasn’t too proud to show them off in high-heels either because most of the time they just don’t look good.
Over the years since teenage days, I had learnt to let go of the hope of fitting my feet beautifully in heels. But I do like to see what other girls have on their feet, whenever I came across a nice pair walking along the street, I’ll goes like “Wah, she has such slim feet and the heels looks great on them” “Check out her toes, long and slim, and her nail polish is so pretty” “The flats looks good on her, I bet lots of high-heels suit her too”. It was painful to go into shops after shops, just to find an OK pair of heels for special events. Its either I squeeze into a size 7 and have the drains between the toes exposed, or my feet looks like rice dumpling. And, I’m always rewarded with blisters when in heels. I’m just not fated to have the privilege and obsession most girls do.
Oh well, so be it. *grin*
