Ouch! Mine was probably an invisible piece of metal (I got it in front of a garage) but I believe I managed to take it out yesterday; it hurts much less today. It pretty much sorted itself out.When I was little, we had to watch for honey locust trees (native to Indiana and the Midwestern U.S.). They have really huge, vicious thorns. Bad for bare feet, really.
I went barefoot to the post office this afternoon and still cannot believe how much fun it is to walk around without shoes. It just feels great. I wish no one was shocked, but I cannot avoid that. A man stopped me to tell me he admires me but is concerned for my safety. I certainly didn't tell him about the splinter
Also enjoying listening to the Living Barefoot Show podcast http://www.livingbarefoot.info/the-livi ... w-podcast/ although I'm getting tired of hearing about minimalist footwear when all I want is to take my shoes off.
