So far, I have not felt the need to tell you. I assumed – please tell me, rightly – that if you are a regular reader of a blog called Itchy Feet, then you long for the great outdoors as much as I do. And something happened today that made me want to explain.
Here it is – to the person who arrived here looking for ‘ugly new born turkey pictures’. First of all, why? Of all things bright and beautiful that there are to see, why would you want to search for the u.n.b.t.? But then, who am I to question you? People have been known to search for weirder things – ‘the meaning of life’ instantly springs to mind.
But I digress. The tag ‘Turkey’ in this blog does not, let me repeat- does not, refer to the fat birds that find their sorry way to the kitchens and subsequently, plates of a million well-fed Americans late in the year. It refers to the country whose star attraction Istanbul straddles Asia and Europe and which is edging speedily into the European Union. A country I fell in love with and dream of going back to, the first chance I get. Which is why I keep writing about it.
So, my suggestion is, stop looking for food / bird porn and find better things to do with your time.
You too, people who come here every.single.day. looking for a solution for your health and hygiene problems. ‘Special meanings to feet itching’? – it is time to get a new pair of socks. And wash them frequently. And try specialist products – I recommend Dr. Scholls’. Ditto for he who comes here because ‘my feet itch after i stand for long periods’. Sit down, man.
As for you, seeking ‘itchy souls of feet’, what can I tell you, the ultimate seeker?
