I’ve been woefully blind to the role of your sole as the lowest component of human anatomy, seldom supported by more than a glance from the loftier regions of purposeful vision, I’m telling you now that your sisters, two hands are in earnest applauding your dauntless progression. A step at a time with the body attached, you’re the first into friendly or hostile surrounds.
Well, if I had a voice I’d be prone to rebel at the top of my lungs to a load disproportioned in size to its tread. If my eyebrows could arch, then the floor might reflect an imperious mug.
