I have had my toes painted everyday for the past 10 or so years. I don’t hide them from anyone, except my wife’s co-workers. I am completely and totally sold out for the “I don’t give an f what you think, if you don’t like it then too bad for you” attitude. Except when it comes to my wife. All of this is a struggle for her because she cares very much about what others think about her. She thinks that people will believe that her husband is gay and she it just too stupid to see it. She feels it paints her as a fool. I guess I get it, other people’s opinions just have not impact on me. Anyway, she has always asked me to wear shoes when I go to her work or plan to be around anyone she works with.
We are hosting a 4th of July party in a couple of hours with a bunch of her and my co-workers coming. I had every intention of being in flip flops for the party, it is in the 90’s today. She was on the fence about me showing my toes and the other day finally mentioned in conversation with her co-worker. Well that co-worker just reinforced all of the fears that my wife has about them finding out about my painted toes. I was actually a little stunned about how put off by the idea she was and she asked my wife how she reconciled my painting my toes with not being gay. That is the worst reaction that I have had in the last 10 years. Now it is socks and shoes for the party.
