FORMER NFL STAR DEION SANDERS was colorful enough to garner two nicknames: Prime Time, and Neon Deion. As a football coach now, he is called Coach Prime. But due to medical issues with his left foot, he recently had to have his big toe and his second toe amputated. How ambulatory he will be in the future is yet to be determined, but it’s fortunate that this didn’t happen during his playing days, when his feet were quick enough to make him a star on both the offensive and the defensive side of the ball. He had athlete’s feet! Beyond that, as a term of measurement, WHO NEEDS THE METRIC SYSTEM when we have inches, feet, yards, blocks, miles, etc? However, in the military, in order to facilitate communication with allied forces who are on the metric system, the term ‘klick’ evolved as a distance measure. It equals one kilometer. Perhaps the soldiers were so put off by the metric system being forced on them, they started using the work ‘klick’ instead. But they were still, falling back on an old term, foot soldiers. Our feet, and how we treat them, can impact our daily activities greatly. There’s a time to go barefoot, and there’s a time to be shod. For people who really care about keeping their feet happy, which foot do they disappoint when they get their laundry out of the dryer and one of a pair of socks is missing? Oh, sorry, left foot, I think that was your sock that disappeared.
