    Outside of america I think the terms american and yankee are a little interchangeable....

    It's all good. Inside America everyone from your part of the world is an Aussie (kidding but I couldn't resist)

    According to my mother, the podiatrist says I'll go back to wearing "normal" shoes with proper support once my feet start hurting. I have feet like my grandmother and my father, so I'd best just PLAN on having foot surgery someday.

    ...

    How much you want to bet Grandma wore shoes all her life? My feet don't hurt when I wear 5 Fingers. They kill me by the end of the day when I wear regular shoes, especially with the custom-made properly-fitted insoles. I feel off-balance in tennies. I think I'll stick to my flexible flats, thanks.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    I went to the grocery store today, for this week's food. I overhear the kid in front of me asking his mom for a candy bar. Mom says no, and I silently cheer mom on, until I hear "now put your Lunchable on the thing."

    My stepdad had pain in his back a couple of years ago. Two "doctors" (podiatrists, I guess?) told him that one leg was slightly longer than the other, and that he'd need to wear a support sole. He did that and the pain only got worse. He went to someone specialized in alternative medicine, and that guy told him:
    "Why the h** did they tell you you need soles?! Your pelvis isn't aligned, you just need physicial therapy and then you'll be fine. You would've had to wear the sole your entire lifee and it wouldn't have helped!"

    Stepdad's rather sceptical of alternative medicine, but his back pain (and the support soles, LOL) are gone!

    I have a convention next weekend, which means hours of walking. I plan to go on my socks... I'm not going to torture my back and feet with shoes just because they look cute....

    My parents were told long ago that I needed special shoes because one leg was shorter than the other. My mother responded with "She plays soccer just fine, why does she need special shoes?" The doc replied with "well, you could let her run around barefoot, that might help level things out. I really don't think it will though."
    25 years later, I'm still running around barefoot with no issues until I wear foot coffins.

    *facepalm* Doh! If running around barefoot might make it a little better, then why not suggest trying that first? If your parents hadn't said that and just listened to the doc, you would've ran around on special shoes for years before discovering barefoot walking/running/hiking!

    I'm supposed to have a sole as well, but I never liked wearing them, and they barely fit into any shoes without folding themselves or something funky. It was annoying as hell. -_-'

    We went to Las Vegas. I wore VFFs and Merrell's minimalist Mary Janes the entire time...while pushing Mom's wheelchair since she had foot surgery. Granted, that's a lot of walking on a hard flat surface, so my feet did hurt a bit, but guess who was still hurting the least out of 6 women? And who got crap for not wearing "cute shoes" when we all dressed up for dinner, because sometimes you just need to suffer a bit to look good?!?
