Flip-flop tan...

Alex.Tango.Fuego.Feet

A friend shot this today with my camera...she was amazed at the flip-flop tan on my feet...from wearing flip-flops while I work...a definite OSHA violation...but I am the boss...so if I drop a 200 pound stone on my toe...I only have myself to blame...but at least my feet are cool in this heat...

You have the cleanest curviest foot...If your foot was a woman, it would Botticelli's Venus...

Why thank you! But what about Michelangelo's "David"? He's got pretty nice feet, too...?

I do have nice feet, I think - based on past compliments. It's my high arches that impart the curve I guess.

However, they weren't so clean 24 hours prior to this photo. During my work day, they tend to get coated with orange/yellow "yazoo" clay (and sand) on top and between my toes, and stained black on the soles because of the dye leaching from my "work" flip-flops.

It's nice to work in flip-flops doing stone work because I can get them wet and muddy, stand in muddy water, etc. without worrying about them.

Picture me sitting in the shower, with a foot (alternately) up on a knee scrubbing and scrubbing with a little bristle brush and filing/sanding the black stains from the soles and edges...

I wear flip-flops most of the time, so I don't want to gross anyone out...

OK, maybe they are gross and dirty most of the time, but we don't want to know : on that picture, they are (it is) very sexy! ;-) (not a frequent thing, man sexy feet)
