Mary-Beth had always loved her feet. She loved getting all ten of her toes painted and always dreamed of having more! She took great care of her feet, cleaning them thoroughly each day, always wearing shoes, clipping her nails, and rubbing lotion on them to keep them soft. She had tried all sorts of lotions to keep her feet looking great. One sunny day in April, one of the first days of that particular year Mary-Beth got to wear sandals and show off her beautiful feet, she ran into an older woman. The older woman was at Mary-Beth's bus stop that day and the two greeted one another. The older lady complimented Mary-Beth's sandals, saying how her feet filled them out nicely. Mary-Beth thanked the woman and began to tell her that the shoes she had on were one of a few pairs she had found, particularly sandals, that her feet fit in nicely, as she had narrow feet for size 8's. The woman told Mary-Beth that she too had experienced the same problem in her younger days and that she had found a solution. She took out a white tube with no lettering or verbage as to what it's contents were... She told Mary-Beth that it was a lotion that acted as volumizer of sorts and that it would actually widen feet when applied. She gave it to Mary-Beth and told her to apply it to her feet tonight before she went to bed, and that by morning her beautiful, soft feet would be wider.
Mary-Beth went about the rest of her day thinking about what the old woman had given her and told her. She Googled creams and lotions that stated they could "volumize" flesh and feet, but came up empty handed... That night, before bed, she took the white tube out and began lathering her feet with the contents inside. She thought to herself "What the heck, what's the worst that could happen!" After she was done applying the cream, she put on a pair of worn, white tube socks to hold the cream and moisture in for the night. With that, Mary-Beth laid down and went to sleep.
She awoke the next morning and had forgotten about the cream she applied. She went through her routine of brushing her teeth, doing her hair, and getting dressed for her day. After putting on her clothes, it dawned on her, she still had her "night socks" on as she called them. Then she remembered.... She pulled her socks off and without even looking at her feet for any amount of time, she ran to her closet to pull out a pair of sandals to try them on and see if her feet did, indeed, widen. Her feet slipped in with no room to spare. She looked at her feet and couldn't believe her eyes.... SHE HAD SIX TOES ON EACH FOOT!!!
