I "Toed" You It Was Okay

I have gotten several comments and e-mails about my toe-viewing...issue. Everything from a fetish to a mental disturbance of some sort.

So, I will tell you again, Peeps, it is perfectly normal.

I have this obsession about pampering and hygiene. I know, it's a little over the top but still in the upper normal range of dysfunctional.

My purpose was two-fold. Beachy Mimi has a WACKY sense of humor. If G. could not laugh at a toe viewing, and see the wackiness of it, then he couldn't even begin to understand me.

Secondly, if his toes had been gross (believe me, if I thought they were I NEVER would have been out with him or asked to see them) that would have given me a clear indication that he was not up to the male maintenance standards that most women desire.

However, in light of this confession, I have had to promise Queen B that I would NOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ask to see any other part that is not readily viewable in normal daily attire. Up to and including any other feet examinations.

So, G. is safe from inspection (maybe behind the ears?). For now at least.

He's taking me dancing this weekend and a R.O.M.A.N.T.I.C. DATE.

It has been so long since I dated, I'm not sure what that is. But G. is fun so I'm sure it will be something a little off the wall but very proper.

Details Monday.

I sort of wish I had done this with my husband. Well, not necessarily the toe inspection, but more of a discussion about how the toenails get trimmed. Soon after we got married, he cut three of his toenails (not sure why three, but I was happy it wasn't ten), deposited them in an "empty" Chex Mix bag, and did NOT throw the bag away. Can you see where this is going?? Later, I happened upon the bag and decided to finish the contents and, consequently, I CHEWED THE TOENAILS.

So. I think discussion and inspections regarding hygiene are most certainly not out of bounds.

I hope you have a wonderful time on your date!

For me... it was fingernails. I SO should have done the toe thing though. I'm just saying.

And how are you? We haven't chatted in awhile. I'm glad it's because you've got some romance going on!

You are too funny! Toe Cleanliness is next to Godliness, right?

I'm a little disappointed in the fact that we will not get to hear about any of his other hidden parts. ;)

Good luck on your romantic date. I can't even remember what that is like, and I really mean that seriously.

Only you, Beachy Mimi.

Hopefully for G, it was one of "those moments" when you just know.....

Can't wait to hear about the dancing!

You are "toe" funny! :) Enjoy your date.

I've had another lesson with the 9 year old boy this week about nail hygiene. Some woman will thank me one day...I just know it.

Glad to hear all is well in G. land.

I clearly remember looking at [what would eventually be my huband's] feet the first time I was at his house. It was hot and he just had on shorts and a Tshirt. I looked down and thought, "Wow. He has really nice feet." Men generally do not have nice feet, I am now aware. I think it is perfectly normal request on your part to make. You may want to keep an eye out for the hair in the ears. That is a no-no for me.

Love your post title :)

The fact that G. is still around after you requested an impromptu toe inspection speaks as loudly as his passing said inspection.

Could his last name possibly be Specific?

Can't wait to hear about the dancing! Have fun.

FAT ankles!!! Who the heck does he think he is?! I mean, does he think he's Mr. Chicken-ankles? The Greek god of slim and trim?! UGH!! MEN!!

On a happier note, I just gave you the Honest Scrap award. Go get it!
