    Not an education-related topic but I had to chuckle..... You see, for the past few days, it's been colder than normal BUT a few girls have come to school wearing flip-flops. They come to homeroom saying they're cold... And I reply, "It's not 'Show Your Toes' season anymore..." :lol:

    It certainly isn't! In fact, yesterday and today here it's been, "Don't Have Any Exposed Skin" season!

    I wear open toed shoes all year round. I'm stupid like that.

    Honestly, I can't stand shoes which are closed toe, they make me feel constrained.

    I've been known to wear sandals in winter. If the temps are above 50, I'm in sandals. I wear open toes all year, no matter the temperatures.

    I don't complain about cold, though.

    I love this weather. I love boots, scarves and sweaters. I feel bad for the students though because many of them don't have the proper clothes, like jackets or even sweatpants. (they wear shorts)

    Actually, if you wear sandals along with wool socks and neoprene diving booties, your feet will stay toasty warm in the coldest and wettest weather.

    Very few closed toe shoes are comfortable for me so I'll wear sandals long after it's cold enough to make the switch. Thankfully I live in a relatively warm winter climate.

    I'm at my happiest when I'm in thick sweaters and socks, sipping a cup of hot tea with honey. That being said, I know a great number of people who try to spend all winter in shorts and sandals. Heck, I know people who go BAREFOOT at all times except when required by public notice.

    Where I live (Yukon) it's RARELY show your toes weather. That doesn't stop us, though! Many people wear boots to work, and switch into open toed shoes for the day!

    Yeah, I wish some people would wear socks when they wore open toed shoes because I hate looking at feet that are not taken care of. Just gross!!!
