I am sorry I have ignored you the past few weeks. There was a new boy that I am trying to woo and although I know that really isn't a proper excuse, it is what happened and I am so sorry. I know you have been pretty good to me (unlike those ungrateful feet). If you could find it in your heart (well technically our heart) please forgive me and make the next few weeks less torture than I am expecting them to be. I promise to take hot Epsom salt baths and do all the extra stretching I am supposed to, if only you won't be too cruel to me.
Begging you on bended knee,
P.S. Ungrateful Feet - I just bought you new shoes - bribery works doesn't it?
