I discovered something yesterday while waiting outside the changing room at Victoria’s Secret for my wife to try on some new undergarments. My toes have a more active social life than I do! Wearing my VFF’s gets me a lot of gazes and glances, and for those brave enough to approach, a fair share of questions.

Luckily, I’m still happy to answer, and as last night showed, what starts as questions about my toes can quickly develop into other topics, and before I knew it, my toes had introduced me to a new friend with similar interests and a child my son’s age who lives nearby.

Thanks, toes! Who knew you’d be so popular?
