What Happens When My Verbal Filter Is Turned Off

Conversation I had in the bathroom yesterday....

Me: When did it become popular to not wear pantyhose with heels?

Co-worker: I have no idea. It has been a while.

Me: It seems like celebrities started this trend. It doesn't make sense.

Co-worker: Why not?

Me: Because when I wear my heels with no pantyhose my feet get all sweaty and by the time I get home they smell like butt.

Co-worker: Me too!

Me: Maybe we can figure out a way to stick our feet out of the car window while driving to air them out so that we don't choke to death on our own stank.

Co-worker: Yeah, why don't you work on that.

Celebrities do not care if their shoes smell like butt. They can afford to just throw them away and get new ones.

I know a woman who keeps her shoes in her freezer. She says it helps with the smell. I don't know where she keeps her food.

This may sound nuts but I am told it works.

Iced tea without the ice is supposed to get rid of stinky feet.

Get a pan big enough to soak your feet. Fill pan with water, add tea bags and let seep. Remove tea bags. Insert feet and let soak for 15/20 minutes.

It is recommended that you do this for 5 to 7 days. I guess the tea dries the feet to some extent, therefore making it harder for them to get sweaty. But does not cause them to be dry in a way that they are calloused.

Just passing on what I heard.

laughing ~ It isn't the shoes. I have shoe spray to kill the odor. I am talking about when I first take off my shoes after they have been stuffed in heels all day. Ususally there is no smell but sometimes on a really hot day if I have been wearing them all day by the time I get home they are sweaty and disgusting.

Churlita ~ That is crazy.

Moonbeam ~ I don't usually have an issue with stinky feet. Just occasionally if I am wearing close toed heels without pantyhose. I wonder if spray deoderant would work.

I don't know...I am willing to suffer from stank foot syndrome in exchange for not wearing pantyhose. Pantyhose are like a torture devise to me.
I guess that would be me with my verbal filter off :-) Feels okay!

Aside from the stank, which is bad enough, I know I'd also get blisters like crazy if I wore heels without hose.

I am guessing it started in the South. It is just WAY too hot here to wear any extra layers. Plus, our shoes are more like sandals & not so much sweat makers.
