What Do Your Feet Do?


Will you help me conduct a tiny, informal survey?

I can see how many people read my blog (although not who), and if every one who read this responded, that would be useful for me.

So here’s the question:

When you wake up in the morning and you’re all loose and relaxed and you’re lying on your back – which way do your feet point?

I think most people would say their feet generally point more or less up. To 11 and 1 on the clock, roughly. Maybe a little more, maybe a little less.

Mine point to 9 and 3. That’s just how they lie there.

I’m particularly interested in a reply from my sisters, Lexie and Twig. Is this genetic?

I’m being treated by Jenna, a physical therapist at Body Dynamics, for the (unrelated) unhappiness in my knee; she looked at what the dancers call my “turn-out” (dancers envy the naturally splay-footed) and said she’d be looking into my hips at our next appointment. Cool.

So – is this configuration regular? A little unusual? Kind of rare? Would you help me? Tell me: Where do your feet point when you lie relaxed on your back?

You can answer on the blog or on Facebook; you can post a photo or just say the numbers on the clock that your feet point at. You can send me an email if we’re on that footing. (Ho – footing. Get it?) You can stop me at BDI and tell me. I’ll collect and try to post an update.

Thank you!


Nice bug bites, huh? The average 58-year-old woman heals so damned slowly!
