Sandal Season

It’s finally sandal weather and after a winter of socks and shoes, I am so ready! I dug out my sandals and polished my toes.  A pedicure has been a prerequisite to sandals for as long as I can remember.  Apparently, though, this is not a universal truth.

When my children were young, a friend once asked, “Where do you find the time?”  I told her I have to because I love to wear sandals. As a girl, I wasn’t allowed to wear sandals unless my toes were polished. If I had brand new sandals and the weather turned suddenly warm before my toes were polished, I had to wear my sneakers.

“But your fingers aren’t polished and you’re not wearing gloves,” my friend pointed out.  What can I say? Mom never had a rule about that!
