A village in the tropics.
A tropical drink.
An actress (Toti Palmate?)
Or dish soap.
None of the above.
Pray you don’t have it.
Or anyone else you know.
Something only a mother duck could love.
The song rings true:
“Be kind to your fine feathered friends
For a duck could be somebody’s mother…”
Or a goose.
Or a pelican.
In any case, it can happen.
A person can be born totipalmate.
Surgery usually succeeds in correcting it.
But a well-toed foot is preferable.
How great the toe.
Big and little.
And those in between.
The big toe gets all the attention.
Because it’s the biggest.
Leader of the pack.
And typically the one we stub.
The others snicker as the big toe swells.
And turns black and blue.
That’ll teach ya, they mumble.
It’s only the three of ‘em, though.
And ring toe.
The little toe (aka baby toe) never gets attention.
No one listens to it.
Half the time you can’t even see it.
Poor little pinky.
So treat those toes to a pedicure.
From Kim Nail at Hair Care Extraordinaire.
Don’t be shy.
Guys can have one too (without the nail polish).
Your feet will thank you.
