So, toes do not get as much attention as fingers. I just made up that fact, but there is evidence to prove my point. All my fingers (and yours as well) have a clear cut name. We’ve got the thumb and pinky and then the index, middle, and ring fingers.
What of my toes? I call one of them “my big toe” and another one “my pinky toe.” I know that isn’t an entirely scientific way to quantify them, and yet, you know to which toes I was referring. But what about the middle toes? I have no idea what I’m supposed to call those little Vienna sausage-shaped digitals.
My MOH suggests that we refer to them as market, home, beef, wee wee wee, and none. I think that’s an exceptional idea.
But with her stroke of genius, there is a downside. My fiance pointed out the awkwardness of a phrase such as “My roast beef is broken.” Or, as D$ pointed out, “I sprained my none.”
Speaking of toes, I need to go soak my market; it hurts.
