A ha-ha moment for me. I let my dog in and when I took off her leash I was standing there & was not even thinking about what I was doing & grabbed the leash with my toes & put it on the table. I have some friends staying with me &

the one said very excitedly- “ WTH did you just dooooo?” There’s some very random things that I do without thinking. I was stunned at first, like, what? Oh. The toes.

Lol, I’m glad I’m not the only one. Since I was a kid, I could and would use my toes to pick things up. It became a necessity quite often. I don’t even think about it when I do it. Lol, it looks like we have some interesting talents.

When I was a child I did everything with my feet. I can even write with my feet. I'm not kidding. My right foot is better at writing than my left. I also used to climb poles with my toes and I can pick up almost anything.

Now I can't bend over with rods all the way through and I was thankful for my monkey toes. I freak people out with my flamingo knees! When I sit next to my daughter ahe picks up pens, straws etc. with her toes and pokes me or writes on me.

Everytime I bathe I try to grab my knee and yank my toes up to me but end up teetering backwards. Now if I could train my toes so that one foot washes the other foot I would be set!

Story of my life! It's so much easier to brings things up than having to bend down. My hubby calls them my monkey feet. Too bad it'd be kinda awkward to do it in the classroom. I drop the whiteboard markers ALL THE TIME

My family called me a monkey, lol. I used to change the channel and push the nurse call button when I had a surgery or procedure. Lol, I still use them instead of bending down. You are right. It is much easier doing it that way than bending down.

Oh yeah, I grab things with my toes all the time because my head hurts so much, and often gets worse when I lean forward lol. It's easier/less painful for me to pick things up with my feet. I also taught my dog how to jump up onto things "Up up"

I'm really migrainous lately, and he's teeny tiny, so yesterday I pulled a kitchen chair out and pointed and said "Up up!" and he hopped on the chair, then I pointed to the table and said "Up up again!" and he got on the table so I could put his leash on without bending forward.

I was glad he did not poo on this walk because I just was not fit to bend over and pick it up and not tryna get shouted at by a neighbor either.
