'Big toe best feature,' man declares

In a survey, asking, “What would you consider your best feature?” a man answered, “My big toe.”
Yes, I know when people are asked this question, they usually answer, “My hair, face, eyes, smile,” or other choices complimenting their appearance.
Not that we are entitled to any explanation for his choice. Fact is, some of us would be hard pressed to come up with any special feature that sets us apart in any way from others.
And that may be the reason this good old boy had to go all the way from head to foot before he could come up with a choice. What’s more, unless he is a regular wearer of sandals or flip flops no one would know what his best feature is if he hadn’t told us.
And who knows? Since he has wonderful big toes, he may never have been afflicted with painful bunions, corns or calluses. That’s something to rejoice about and may be the reason he chose his big toe as his best feature.
Some could join me in praising him for speaking up on behalf of his big toes. It is the right thing to do. They deserve all the praise they can get. Truth is, when he is wearing socks and shoes, his best feature is hidden.
After wracking my brain, I did come up with another possible reason for his choice. Perhaps he thinks his big toe is absolutely great because it helps him get a toehold on life.

In life, as it is lived today, that is no small thing. In this shaky, tottering, trembling, unsteady and wobbly world keeping your balance is a great achievement.
