Following Up on the Blue Toes


The colors in my post yesterday about my blue toes made me think about this image that I made in the organic market one Saturday. Now don't try to connect the garlic and my toes. Just think about the colors....blue toenails, pink skin.

I've been a little surprised by the response I received about the blue toenails in comments on Reservations for One and Facebook where my blog shows up as a Networked blog. Some cheered me on and some were kind of like, yuck and some kind of wondered if I wasn't going over the edge. But one comment I really liked was from my friend Ellen who pointed out an article in the New York Times about the short story writer Alice Munro who is 81 years old. At the time of the interview for the article, Munro had electric blue toenails. So I'm in good company with some of a certain age. I'd like to say I was in good company with a famous short story writer but that would definitely be stretching it.

  1. One of my best friends also chose blue for her toenails, and for a similar reason. She loved that she laughed every time she looked down at her feet. And that was good enough for her ... :)

  2. I had a girl paint my toenail blue not long ago. They match my blue sandals and jeans. My mom thinks they are hideous. But they make me laugh.

  3. Laughter is what it is all about! But it is funny that the color of toenail polish could stir up so many feelings.

  4. If they bring a smile to you face and, as you said, make you giggle, it's certainly worth it! :D
