I thought I’d write about the one time I actually was injured in a Kroger due to their negligence.
What do you think the outcome should have been?
Bare feet and sailboats have gone together for a long, long time. Particularly when materials were all-natural and got quite uncomfortable when wet, got slippery, and rotted, bare feet were the obvious choice.
This is pretty-well documented, as I wrote in More Barefoot Sailors.
When this appears on my blog I’ll be up in the air on my way to Costa Rica for my niece’s wedding. The resort there has really lousy internet access, so I’m not even bothering to bring my computer.
However, I have some posts prescheduled for when I’m away, so keep tuning in here. The only thing you might notice is if you are a new commenter. I have things set that first-timers have to be approved, so if you comment on a posting, it probably won’t appear until next week. (This does not apply to anybody who has commented in the past—that’ll go right through.)
We’ll see how things go with the airline. I know there are folks who’ve managed to fly barefoot a lot, but I seem to have pretty bad luck getting onto the plane. I’ve had flight attendants see my bare heels from the back while heading down the aisle and come chasing after me. So we’ll see.
Going out shopping barefoot can sometimes be a bit of a crap shoot. If you are going to a new place, you never really know what to expect. But that can also be true of places that you shop at regularly, since there might be a pelmatophobe on duty that day who causes trouble.
But other times it can be gratifying when store employees simply express interest.
Fear and Breastfeeding in Las Vegas is the name of a blog entry from The Leaky Boob, a “lactivist” (love the word) blog about breastfeeding. It’s a great story (go read it) of a breastfeeding mother standing up to a restaurant in Las Vegas that questioned her breastfeeding of her child there.
I also think it is related to barefooting (though, of course, I can find that just about everything is related to barefooting).
