Random ramblings

I think I may have athlete’s foot. My toes feel gummy. And gummy toes are definitely not a good thing.

When Clay was a tiny tot, he couldn’t stand for his hands to get messy. He would sit in his high chair and hold up chubby digits dripping with the remnants of jello and toddler meat sticks, whining, “Gummy gummy hands!”

The last time Clay was home from school he brought a bundle of dirty laundry for me to wash. By the time he got ready to leave, I alerted him to the fact that his clean socks were still a bit damp. “That’s OK,” he said. “My socks are always damp.” After he left I began worrying. Did he mean they’re always damp when he takes them out of the dryer? Or does he actually slog around the campus with squishy socks? If he wears damp socks, couldn’t that lead to a foot fungus? Like, maybe, athlete’s foot?

I brought this one full circle nicely, didn’t I? šŸ™‚



  1. They are usually damp when I take them out of the dryer, and dry before I wear them. šŸ™‚
