Today, I didn't want to get sand in my shoes. So I walked down to the beach barefoot. The sand was so hot that it burned the soles of my feet. I now have blisters across the bottom of my feet and between my toes. But at least there's no sand in my shoes. FML

Was there any water nearby to walk near / cool off your feet? I have always found the wet sand easier to bear in the middle of summer.

You should've just put your shoes back on

Sounds like OP didn't bring their shoes at all

They obviously knew that sand was hot as soon as they stepped on it and should have thought to immediately put their shoes back on. It's common sense. Why is #1 getting down voted?

Because OP didn't bring shoes at all.

Yes, OP DID bring shoes. It sounds like it was in the car since OP said "so I walked down to the beach barefoot". If OP didn't bring any shoes at all, it would have been "so I went to the beach barefoot". The point is, OP should have realized that the sand was way too hot the moment they began to walk on the sand. it only takes two steps: step on the sand, go back to get your shoes. It's a real feat to burn yourself to the point of blisters.

Anyone get my reference to the song "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters?

unfortunately, the lyrics are incorrect - maybe that's why.

Clever use of lyrics! That first line was perfect for this FML. 50, how kind of you to pronounce the lyrics as wrong without correcting them.

OP: "Yay! No easily washed off gritty sand in my shoes! Man, I should start walking barefoot everywhere! It might cause irreparable harm, but at least it'll save on laundry."

Always bring backup shows to the beach! A lesson hard learned.

You obviously shouldn't brought out your Blastoise and used Surf in order to skip all the sand!

Yeah, well, in your shoes there are no feet either. More like bloody stumps. O_o

Next time you should buy some cheap $1 sandals. You can pretty easily rinse the sand off of those.

It's the beach. I dont know why you would suffer going through that much pain for shoes? You can wash them off.
