Re: re nursery interview apparel


Don't feel bad Kitty - I have the flatest feet in the universe. If I
walk barefoot on concrete or tile, it sounds like a duck walking around
- ludicrous. Add being slightly pigeon-toed to that and you'd think I
have trouble w/ my feet. Nope. Am on them all day dawn to dusk on the
weekends. Used to walk a lot too, before Sugar and the garden. And I
garden in (usually) worn out thrift store flip flops in the warmer
weather. No support. Soles on the last pair got so thin until I could
step on a coin and tell the denomination. If these babies can hold up to
the abuse I dish out, you will be fine, I'm sure of it.
