#100HappyDays: Day 20
Being Barefoot



Something I always say is "The world is a better place without shoes," and I stand by that. In fact, the first thing I do when I get home for the day is peel of my shoes. My feet rejoice in happiness and basque in their freedom for the rest of the day until I have to tragically shoehorn them into another pair in the morning.

When I lived in New York, I would frequently go walking around the city and Central Park with no shoes on, and, while some might view that as absolutely disgusting, I view those as the times when I was most happy. Homeless man pee can always be washed off at the end of the day, and as long as I paid attention to where I was stepping - a skill that one must have while living in New York - I was fine. No harm, no foul.

I don't know what it is about being barefoot. You just feel more connected, more free, untethered to societal norms.

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List" What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious. Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list. Things That Are Yellow: bananas school buses yellow bell pepper tennis balls Post Shredded Wheat boxes (see right) lemons canaries the middle traffic light traffic lines the sun cheddar cheese hay corn butter cabs #2 pencils grapefruit raincoats (stereotypical ones, anyway) bees squash yellow jackets (I HATE those things!) the yolk of an egg scrambled eggs or an omelet peanut M&Ms the Simpsons various flowers rubber duckie etc... So that's my list of yellow things! :) The most curious? Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly. Check back later today for my 5th Character Profile on Nolan Ha
