I have had a large foot since I was a child and it’s all because I went barefoot. At least, that is what the woman who sold shoes in our small town department store kept telling my mother. “She will end up with a big, wide foot when she grows up. She will have a size 8E. I know she will.” What did that dear woman know?
That was 1946. I wonder what she would think if she knew that I buy my shoes in an 11 W; and I still go barefoot all of the time. Gee, I wonder just what size my foot will be when I grow up?
