Sandals
When I game, I like to sit on the which was given to me by a friend. It's a second hand, I think third, and it feels like it. It's broken down in the middle and the sides aren't much better. But it's a couch and beggars can't be choosers. Being that I am still putting my life back together after a particularly nasty and unforeseen divorce, puts me squarely in the beggar category.

When I am sitting on my very broken down couch I also like to put my feet up on a small footstool which was also given to me by the same friend. It is also in rough shape, but it works, so I am not complaining. I am just not sure if he is really my friend by giving me this set or he may have been using me as a clearinghouse for his unwanted and probably unsellable furniture.

Back to me sitting comfortably on my very rough couch and stool; this is where I am comfortable. In the summer, I am wearing shorts or just lounging about in my boxers, and a t-shirt. Hey, it's my house and I live alone so why not be comfortable? During the winter months, I tend to wear flannel pajama bottoms, thick socks and a cozy sweatshirt. The controller rests nicely in my hands which are in my lap and my attention is squarely focused on the flat panel tv mounted on the wall and a steaming cup of coffee is close at hand.

Lately though, I have found that I can not cross my legs while they are resting on the stool. As a matter of fact, I can't even rest my feet on the stool. My feet, ankles and heals all hurt. A lot.

I am normally a person that goes about barefoot for most of the warmer months. Being that I live in the greater Sacramento area, this is most of the year. In the colder months, I wear the normal footwear just like everyone else. Not too long ago, I was dating a gal who talked me into wearing flip flop sandals about instead of walking barefoot everywhere. After stepping on a few unseen small rocks while taking out the garbage after dark, I had to agree...at least during the hours after dark. In the daylight I could pick my way around such hazards without much trouble.

She and I were out shopping in Folsom one very sunny afternoon and the shop we were visiting had a closeout on a number of sandals, so she bought me a pair. I was grateful but I put them aside telling her that I would indeed start wearing them. Well, after a while, the relationship ended and the gifted sandals lay forgotten in my closet. Months later, searching for something else completely unrelated I ran across my new and unworn sandals. I shrugged and started wearing them around the apartment complex on my way to gather the post, walk to the hot tub or pool and also to take out the garbage.

This is when my current predicament started of not being able to put my feet up while gaming. These very cheap closeout sandals were comfortable but they also had a very high arch on them causing my feet to shift my normal walking and support patterns. Basically, no wonder they were so cheap. A week later, I am still having issues with my feet and ankles, but I am on the mend.

I am giving consideration of a new pair of sandals but this time I will be warily buying flats. I like my long evening sessions of Elder Scrolls Online, Halo, Minecraft or whatever game I would like to spend time with. But I do not like the fact that a simple pair of junky cheap closeout sandals has interrupted my game time and forcing my longer times to be cut far short of my preference.

In short, watch what you wear on your feet. It could effect your gaming habits. It certainly did mine.
