Burning question! …

The world is full of unanswered questions!  

Right now I have a burning question I can’t seem to find an answer for …

Why do big toes have hairs?

Now I haven’t done a massive survey on this and collected loads of data, but I have asked friends. Most women I know (which isn’t many) confess to having under five big toe hairs, 
I myself have three. Does that make me a freak! 

I am not sure how many men have as I’m thinking it may be slightly offensive & weird to ask straight out. I may set up a no shoe and sock policy in my house using hidden foot CCTV to be able to get some real statics collected. Just gotta get some men to enter through the threshold, need to think …

Also the quality of hair, mine are soft and fine but a woman friend said hers are thick which leads to other questions …

Are we born with it?

Wondering about texture, how extreme does it differ and why?

Do they go grey in old age? 

Can your big toe suddenly go bald? 

Anyhow I digress … Why do big toes have hair, it can’t be for protection because three hairs aren’t going to do anything to protect. In fact if my foot were covered in hair and a car rolled over it, I am 100% sure it would still hurt loads.

There are no openings so no need for protection there either. They aren’t long enough to style to funk up a pedicure or go to a big toe hair stylist.

Visualising new movie … Hair raising performance ‘The Three Hair Musketeers’ coming to a big toe near you!  

Why oh why are they there?

Other hair bits I can understand and can come up with sensible & novel answers, for example hair on fingers is to help when you use your hand to wipe your nose (if you haven’t got a tissue handy). It creates a anti slip surface for the mucous to be wiped away discreetly.

We know eyebrows are the umbrellas on our faces.

Leg & hair arm are thermostat control.

I shall stop there! 🙂

Would love to hear any pearls of wisdom you may be able to offer, I am certain there is an answer I just can’t see it …

Book review 
 

I read this book in one day purely because I didn’t want to put it down, it was a very enjoyable read that got my mind thinking.

The reason why this book was chosen was first the cover, it stood out from the other books then I flipped over to the blurb at the back it pulled me in straight away … 
‘On the internet, we can be anyone we choose. No one knows who we really are’.

The reviews seemed great too, it claimed it was short listed for the Guardian First Book Award.
We all use the internet and it rung so true that we never really know who people are. Our lives can be filled with people we have never even met or even if we do eventually meet they can be almost disappointing when compared to the digital version of themselves.
The start of the book was a little confusing but I see what the author did further on, it all smoothed out to a very good read. 
At times when I stopped for a cuppa break not only did it have me thinking about the plot, I also thought of characters I have met online and how they have managed to sow a fabric of lies, choosing whom they wish to be. But we all know in this day and age with so much social media about they are hopefully going to get caught out one day. 

I don’t really want to give you too much info about the book but it follows a young girl called Leila who gets sucks into a weird online group run by a self confessed guru of sorts. 
Leila has an online life and doesn’t venture out into the real world, this is where the abduction of her mind begins. She is a likeable character slightly obsessive but with a vulnerability that only the reader at first sees and almost feels. There are times when her emotions are dealt with almost clinically and you want to reach into the text pull her out and give her a hug but you know she would be as stiff as a board and she would wish to evaporate out of your arms.

Be prepared the book may entice you to think more about the people behind the screen you share your life with, are they really who they say they are?

… Who are you?
