I HAVE TOES, AND I HAVE A NOSE.  You probably do, too.  Are yours like mine?

If my toes are cold, my nose is cold.

If my nose is cold, it runs.

It’s my body part’s way of saying… Get warm ya big goof, we’re freezing!  And, if you’re not careful we’re all gonna be sidelined with a cold.

Southern California cold, like down in the 40’s, is when my toes start to hurt and ache and burn and complain and whine…  That’s when I bust out the toe warmers.  (This, of course, will be an outrage to my Northern friends… and hopefully a subtle invite to get your toes down here.)

Toe warmers might be a misnomer, because they are really shoe covers that protect the leading edge the hammers at the end of my legs (aka my shoes).  They don’t actually warm each toe individually with a tiny electric blanket.  But, because I have these awesome racing shoes with incredible ventilation…

I don said warmers,

to do said warming,

which is just what said toes,

said they needed this morning.
