So I slipped them off and started walking home barefoot.
Except the sidewalks had warmed considerably during the day. And my first thought was, "Damn that's hot."
I only lasted a block and half before I decided it was better to put the shoes back on and just deal with the blisters.
Except when I got home, the balls of my feet were killing me. And when I checked, lo and behold, I'd managed to burn blister both of them. The blister on my right foot is nearly 2" long and is killing me. And I still have the side of that heel devoid of skin because it got rubbed raw anyway.
I threw the shoes away.
But I'm still pretty dumb.
