Mysteries by the foot.

Help me understand this. I wear socks and shoes most days. I have house shoes and street shoes. All worn with either long socks of little footie socks. Rarely do I walk around in my house or outside barefoot. Plus my feet go with me when I take a shower.

So, here is the question. How does dirt make its way in-between each of my toes? Some call it ‘toe jam.’ Just accumulated gritty dusty dirty dirt. Again, my feet are protected by sock and shoe. Sometimes protected by my pant leg covering the top of the shoe. So and again, how does that granular grit get between my toes? Necessitating me to remove the fine gravel with my fingers. But in order to remove the foot soot I must wedge my fingers between each toe and shovel it out. Just an awful thing to do. But it needs to be done. Just a freaking smelly mess.

So here is my suggestion. To keep from touching the icky stuff someone should invent and manufacture “toe floss.” Perhaps a thick cotton string. Just run a strand of toe floss in-between each toe and then toss the floss out. It could be branded as “Dr. Foot’s Feet Floss” or “Jam Ram.” What do you think?
