Here’s a little afternoon pondering for your daily afternoon pondering time: If you were a foot vehicle*, what kind of foot vehicle would you be? Consider structure, material, function, ease of putting on and taking off, and ability to react to emergency situations.**

* A foot vehicle is any sort of thing made to carry the foot. Examples: shoe, roller skate, holey sock, woven sleeve of leaves.

** I personally default to sudden bear chases (either as chaser or chasee) for emergency situations, but there are a wide variety of emergencies to consider when being a foot vehicle.
