You guys know the toes--and that kind of scares me

I never dreamed so many of you would be interested in staring that closely at our feet.

I also never dreamed y'all would be so good at this. But of all the entries, only two people got all five feet correctly identified. AC was called in to break the tie.

But first, some interesting statistics.

1. Kira is my identical foot twin. Our feet were the most often confused.

2. Everyone seemed to be able to identify Alexandra's foot.

3. Many folks were able to get 3/5 in thier entries.

4. My mother had difficulty identifying my foot (not that she entered the contest, but you'd think your mom would know your foot, right?)

5. One blog reader took advantage of the opportunity to enter more than once and guessed at 8 foot pictures. (She gets points for being willing to stare at our feet for that long).

6. The "Rita feet" picture was the most popular choice for entries--I guess y'all like fancy shoes too!

7. The Playfriends had difficulty remembering exactly who was who and several emails had to be sent in order to be sure I was working from correct information as I pulled out my red teacher's pen to grade the entries.

But, with 5 out of 5 correctly identified and her name drawn from the yellow bucket by Amazing Child, our winner is .....



But since Zara got 5/5 as well, she'll be getting a prize too.

And catslady, you get a prize for sheer effort expended.

(I'll be in touch with the winners to make arrangements for prize shipping.)

Thanks to everyone who entered. We'll have another fun contest next weekend, but the book giveaway continues this week on the blog, so be sure to comment every day!

Should I be flattered or offended that everyone could identify my size 11, freaky toed, oddly narrow, pasty white, double jointed feet? Not like they stand out or anything... :)

Congrats to the winners!

Thank you so much! :) Congrats to KimW and catslady too!

Smarty pants,

You are tall. You have to have slightly longer feet to maintain balance. At least, that's what I tell myself lol. I wear a size 10. :) By the way, love the shoes!

Hugs, Zara
