God created us in his own image. He made us as similar to himself as he could without us, in turn, becoming god. But instead of making us awesome, he created us with a few flaws. One of which is mans ability to get BLISTERS! WHY GOD WHY?
Evolutionarily(not that it's a word), we never wore shoes when we were monkeys. Shoes presumably were fairly new in the history of man with some people saying we invented them around 30 000 years ago.
On a side note- as an archaeologist I love stories like this. Just think, at some point in our history, ONE PERSON, just ONE, decided to put some fur or something on his feet and create shoes. ONE PERSON, was the first person to EVER WEAR SHOES(or shoe like objects). I always find things like that interesting.
Anyways, the early shoemaker, lets call him Charles due Pont Beauregard, 30 000 years ago made a pair of shoes and little did he realise that he was opening up a world of hurt for runners everywhere. Blisters are annoying. Mine, instead of going down over night, puffed up and still haven't burst. The question is, do I pop it or let it heal naturally(which means it'll pop anyways). This little 20 cent /Quarter/One Pound coin sizes piece of skin will stop me running today. Not because I am afraid of pain! I have had a manflu before and I know what death is like. Instead, I don't want it to get infected, or bigger. It sucks, because today is a perfect day for the gym and I desperately want to run. But everyone needs a day off sometime and atleast I can blame the blister rather than my sore muscles or anything else.
So to god- or Charles due Pont Beauregard or whoever created shoes... I say both a big thankyou for keeping my feet safe and warm, but at the same time a big BOO for opening us up to the world of stupid bubbly feet!
P.S- Please don't take offence to this post if you are religious. Only a joke
