So I decided to walk around barefoot for the day. Don’t worry, there is a reason for this madness. Some may say that it is merely another addition to my recent eccentric behaviour. However, as I like to put it, my normality. Welcome to my life. 😀
Anyway, back to the point. My friend Brian is raising money for the older population in Uganda and to do so he thought of a quirky way to do it. Most people do a sponsored run or bike ride and some even do bungee jumping or sky-diving. However, Brian decided that he would walk around barefoot. I bet you’re thinking that doesn’t seem to bad right? That you walk around your home barefoot usually? Well, he’s doing it for a month and literally everywhere! Not at work though, for health and safety reasons.
There were three ways that I could get involved.
1. Spreading the message of what Brian is doing;
3. Perhaps the most challenging – actually joining him in going barefoot.
Never one for doing anything by halves I decided to actually do all three! Yesterday, I went about my day barefoot. So I went to uni, the Student’s Union, the corner shop and my friends end of year performance. Along the way I did get some rather strange looks from passers-by but whenever I could I would talk to them and explain what I was doing and how they can get involved!
I probably should have checked the weather forecast before I decided do take on the challenge. It rained pretty much solidly all afternoon. To say my feet where wet is a bit of an understatement. It was somewhat fun even after the novelty had worn off. Apparently it’s good for your feet too!
