The Fasticating Use Of the Feet

The foot is a structure made up of 33 joints and 26 bones and it is a complex formation at the end of the leg. It enables human to do a variety of things such as walking, running, dancing, jumping, hoping and much more activities. It is similar to the hand in some ways, but the foot just bear more weight and so it has more strength and mobility.

Our Creature knows exactly what he was doing when he made us with feet because without them I can’t imagine how we as a human would be able to move about. Just imagine what we would look like if he had constructed us from the waist down like a snake. We would use our muscles to slither around, and I am sure none of us can stomach the concept of this picture.

Most of us took nine to eighteen months with up to a total of 1000 hours of practice to be able to make use of our feet and walk during the time we were babies. We did not do it alone because along the way we had a bit of help with our practice from our mummies and daddies include other members of our families. During those times, we took small infant steps and as we improve our steps become longer and display a heel to toe rhythmical during the process. Maybe the cats and dogs had a hand in it too, because there is the possibility that we tried to sprint toward them with our feet and cried out “Kitty” or “Doggy”, with our small infant voices.

The feet have enabled man to venture near and far include in the unknown and if it was not for our feet I doubt if humans would be the superior animal on this planet today. Our feet has been used in all manners of activities. It has been used to kick down doors, kick others in their heads, enable one to be swift and escape from danger and much more. The world Gold Cup was awarded to Germany who used their feet to kick a ball through a goal and become the World Champion of Football in Brazil recently.

It has, been one of our best entertainers next to the mouth and we enjoy a lot of merriment from its use from our doing and watching dancers do their swift steps, glides, Waltz, Tango, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep, Cha Cha dance, Samba, Rumba and other types of dancing. There is also the matter of the parade of Soldiers that that we witness from time to time, march around leading their feet in an orderly and disciplined manner.

Our feet can make us miserable if we do not extend the proper care and attention to them. Misery will come in the form of smell, ache, blister, sweat, itch and peel. Therefore, it’s time we start to acknowledge the importance of our feet. Therefore, we need to ensure that we select the proper shoes to wear or the consequences will be bad. For example, if a shoe is too short, it will cause black toenails, Shoes that is too wide will cause undue friction that leads to blisters and Shoes that are too narrow can cause, calluses, corns, pinched nerve pain, and bunions.

What we choose to put on our feet does reflect something about us and it shows whether we are keen style savvy, lazy or obliviousness plus more. That I why it is vital that we select the proper shoes for our feet, according to the image we wish to project, about ourselves. So let us step up our footwear by wearing sensible shoes that will earn us the respect that we deserve.

Today a person judge us according to what type of shoes we have on our feet and by wearing the wrong shoes for certain event such as a job interview can delete our chances of landing the job we deserve, include chase away the type of lady we want to meet in our circle. The type of shoes we prefer also talk to others by saying things like; here is an easy going guy, he is a cheap person but honest, however, he is never on time. I guess you have already gotten the picture.

Our feet are the workhorses of our body and we need to ensure that they are properly cared for:

• We should always bend down and wash our feet include between the toes with soap and water regularly whenever we bath.

• Washing with warm water is best and we should always dry our feet completely between the toes.

• Switch shoes every day and this means having two or more pair of shoes. For example, if you wear one pair of shoes today, avoid wearing it tomorrow so that it can be aired out in order not to trigger odors or foot infections

• Ensure that the shoes we wear are comfortable as possible and should not be tight, wide or narrow.

Let us give our feet the proper respect they deserve by putting them in the right place and stand tall, then looking to the heavens, and whisper thank you, dear God, for our two honorable feet. Amen!

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go. - Dr. Seuss
