My 5 year old grandson was observing my 61 year old big toe. He asked me if that big crack bleeds on the pad of my toe. I just kind of looked at him for a second.
No, it does not bleed.
Does it hurt?
No, it does not hurt.
But, it’s a big crack, Gramma. It’s gotta hurt.
I had to explain that I have old feet. I have walked on these feet for many years. I am usually barefoot. Gramma’s feet have calluses. Places where the skin is harder and sometimes between the soft skin and the hard skin a wrinkle forms.
He couldn’t wrap his head around that explanation.
Are you sure it doesn’t hurt?
No, it doesn’t hurt. Wrinkles don’t hurt, but thanks for caring enough to ask.
