The November 6th prompt for NaBloPoMo asks if you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Now I could say that I want to change my height, I’m about 6 feet tall…but I don’t mind my height.

I could say that I want to change my weight…lord knows that needs to be changed, but it’s changed plenty over the years and it needs some work, but hopefully that can happen when the chaos of life settles and god willing that is next year.

However I am going to say that I want to change my feet…yes an unusual choice for many, but a normal choice for me.

I have size 12 feet…actually size 12 on a good day, not size 12 on a bad day, so as a result I despise shoe shopping with a passion.  Especially when you get a sales assistant who brings out a size 10 and says “these will fit” and I tell them “yeah I really don’t think so.”  Or worse when they tell you that the style you’re asking about doesn’t come in a 12, numerous times I’ve said they do, and I know they do as their own website says they do.

Add to that the partially joined 2nd and 3rd toes, which makes so many shoes no good for me.

Then there’s the arthritis in one foot…as well as the chunk of missing bone in that foot (as a result of surgery to repair it).

So it’s a simple decision to change my feet.
