30 days of yoga: Day 29 - the foot thing

As I've mentioned before, I generally appreciate a little quiet time/nap before my yoga class begins. But it's not all sweet dreams and towel snuggles, I'll have you know; I generally like to sit upright about five minutes before the teacher comes into the studio just so I'm not going straight from a horizontal position to a standing position and end up toppling over from an epic head rush.

Now, obviously there's not really much to do in a yoga studio when you're not doing yoga, so once I've finished checking my bad self out in the mirror, glanced out the window to see what's going on in the world, and checked out the competition, I've found myself doing this sort of weird thing with my feet.

The only way I can describe it is being a bit like a Predator mouth.

Here, look:

It keeps me entertained like you wouldn't believe, and it's become something of a habit now. I'm sure the people sitting on either side of me must think I'm a mentalist. Either that or they're amazed at the dexterity of my toes. I can pick stuff up with them, don't you know. They're like little monkey feet.

Anyway, as exciting as my feet are, did you notice that today is day 29? Just one more to go…

Perhaps you should grow your toenails and sharpen them into points, for the full-on Predator mouth look?

Although, I imagine it would make wearing shoes quite difficult...

That would be weird.

And gross.

No.

Actually, I'm glad you're not going to do it as I loathe feet.

That looks bizarrely mesmerising.

I can't do that, but I can pick stuff up with my feet.

That kind of reminds me of a joke my brothers taught me. Only it's not with the feet, it's with the hands. Touching both hands with your finger tips - mirroring the other hand. They said it's a spider doing push-ups on a mirror.
