The Winter Foot

I think possibly of all the bits of a person's body, winter toenails are up there with the least pleasant. The foot hides, the eyesight isn't that good so they're really too far away to see, leaning over makes little sense, humidity levels are low and soon enough you're looking around for some kind of pruning saw with an extended handle.

I've disliked my feet for a very long time. They have this capacity to grow skin that puts holes in socks. It's not a skin that politely disappears but clings on for months around the heels, it turns what I guess is a yellowish ghostly color with hints of green. They should really be soaked in hot water and then sanded down.
