I’ve never seen the need for too many pairs of shoes. All I have is one pair of dress shoes, one pair of sneakers, one pair of high-tops (are they still called that?), and one pair of sandals. I walk around barefoot as much as possible and only don footwear when absolutely necessary. Now that I think about it, I walk around naked as much as possible and only don clothing when absolutely necessary.
I have terrible toenails, so I prefer to get them painted. I do take care of my feet with regular pedicures and daily scrubbing and lotion, but my soles are leathery and tough. The morning after a particularly raucous party during which glass was broken, I was walking through my house when I realized that I had been leaving little drops of blood in my path. A quick look confirmed that at some point I had indeed stepped on a large piece of broken glass, which was still embedded in my foot, but I never felt a thing. Apparently, my sole is invulnerable to pain.
Wouldn’t it be great if my real soul was too?
