Barefoot in the snow

January 2010

Going barefoot in the recent snow unsurprisingly produced a few extra odd looks than usual.

Not something I could sustain for prolonged periods or indeed would want to, but for short bursts I actually found it rather invigorating. I wouldn't swim in icy waters on New Year's Day myself, but I do have an understanding as to why those that do speak enthusiastically of the experience.

Meanwhile, not everyone was fazed. I was chatting to a lady in Sainsbury's who asked if I felt the cold, and her husband piped up that he'd streaked in the Antarctic. Man after my own heart.
