This is apparently what happens when you walk on asphalt for about two miles or so.
No, my car did not break down; my car is still at the dealer’s.
See, I was driving over to a friends house, and thinking what a gorgeous evening it was and how I’d been stuck inside all day, sitting. So when I got there, I suggested we take a walk–never mind that I was wearing flip-flops and a long skirt.
So we started walking, and my flip-flops were killing me. They were making the front of my legs cramp up something terrible already, and we’d hardly went 100 feet.
So I took off my flip-flops and went barefoot.
It was much more comfortable.
Until I got blisters.
(But if you do ever get blisters on your feet, you can cover them with athletic tape, available nearly anywhere, and then your feet don’t hurt so much and you can still walk around in your bare feets.)
