The wife told me to add this: WARNING!! THE FOLLOWING POST CONTAINS A PICTURE OF MY FOOT. YOU MAY THINK IT DISTURBING.

If I had to pick out one line of music that summed up my entire life over the last 10 years or so, I'd probably have to go with this line from Evaporated by Ben Folds Five:

Woke up way too late, feeling hung over and old...
Which isn't to say I've woke up hung over every day for the last 10 years (although there have certainly been a *few* of those days,) but more days than not I do wake up feeling old.

Of course the song stops applying the very next line:
And the sun was shining bright, And I walked barefoot down the road
See, the thing is I would never wake up and exercise first thing in the morning. And even if I was going to walk down the road, I wouldn't walk anywhere barefoot. I wear shoes everywhere. I have baby soft feet. Don't believe me? This is a picture of my foot after the last time I walked barefoot:

That blister was shockingly deep. I couldn't walk normally for a week.

So to summarize:
Hungover and old? Yes
Barefoot down the road? No

Um, ewww.

Why oh why didn't I listen to the Laura-suggested warning?

Keep those shoes on.

Also, I love that song.
