Footwear Tip of the Day
Periodically check the bottoms of your flip-flops for thumbtacks or nails, when you're not wearing them. Or, let me rephrase this... before standing on one foot while dressing in the locker room at the Y, check the bottoms of you flip-flops for thumbtacks or nails. You're much more likely to be impaled with such sharp objects when you have all of your weight on one foot, and thus are balanced directly over said thumbtack. Remember all that stuff about weight on a small vs. a large surface area? ...Yeah, weight distribution is a beautiful thing.
