Awhile back, my feet were giving me trouble, a lot of pain, especially dead center in the ball of each foot. So I went to see a medical specialist, who looked and suggested maybe an orthotic, a kind of custom insole -- but then asked, "Are you completely sure you're wearing the right size shoes?"
I'd been that shoe size since High School. so I assured him I was.
Orthotics are expensive and take time; I kept putting it off. My feet kept hurting. One fine day, I asked myself, "Am I entirely sure this is the right shoe size?"
It doesn't cost anything to find out, so I did. Then I bought a new pair of shoes.
My feet are half a size bigger than they were when I graduated High School! Well, that was an easy fix.
When I told my Mom this amazing, remarkable news, she just smiled and remarked that she found her feet got a half-size larger after every child. Oh
