These Ugg boots were made for walkin’

Handwritten page of a diary dated March 18, 2010

if you’re going to say Ugg boots are bad for me, why don’t you just bring out a big scud rocket launcher and shoot me right now?

my mom said she heard it somewhere on TV yesterday and I said remember you told me I shouldn’t believe everything on TV? but she gets on the internet and finds the story and says, see! associated press! that means it’s real!

here, I’ll paste this in: “Because these boots are warm and soft, young girls think they are giving their feet a break. In fact, they are literally breaking their feet,” Dr. Ian Drysdale, head of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, told the paper. “Their feet are sliding around inside. With each step, the force falls towards the inside of the foot and the feet splay,” Drysdale explained. “This flattens the arch and makes it drop. The result can be significant problems with the foot, the ankle, and, ultimately, the hip.”

splay. my feet are splaying. i had to look up the word: to spread apart or outward esp. in an awkward manner, disjoin.

disjoin sounds bad, but haven’t stopped wearing them. except now when walking around, every step i take, I hear the words in my head — splay splay splay disjoin splay splay disjoin splay
