I am Glad I know

Did you know that July is National Cankle Awareness Month? Who knew? I certainly didn't.

For all of you that are unaware of what a "cankle" is let's have a demonstration shall we.

1. Take off your shoes and socks.
2. Now look down at your feet.
3. Is there an indentation where your ankle is or does your calf merge smoothly with the top of your foot forming sort of a mini redwood tree trunk effect. If it is the later then you my friend are the proud owner of a pair of cankles, just like Hillary Clinton.

The Queen of England also has cankles if you must know and look where that has gotten her - a country in decline, an eldest son who is three cherries short of a fruit cake and terrible taste in hats. That could be you if you are so lucky.

Now that you know that you have cankles - and don't we women all have cankles at some time or another- be aware of them. Think of them for a change and their needs. Those "Roman ankle shoes" that are so popular right now are not for you or your cankles.
These are not a good look for your cankles. They exaggerate the "tree trunk" effect and really lower the self esteem of your cankles. Think of someone else for a change rather than being a slave to fashion.

Take your cankles out for a walk or a nice glass of wine, but perhaps not a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich because bacon isn't good for cankles, the salt you know.

Be kind to your cankles, treat them with the respect that they deserve as an equal, if slightly thickened, part of your body. Be gentle, be loving, take them out for ice cream. And then, tell them thank you for all that they do for you.

You will be glad you did.
