Offputting

We went into every gift shop in each of the three Disney parks we visited.  That’s not an exaggeration – we went into every single one.  For the most part, they carry the same stuff.  Ride gift shops had some ride-specific toys and shirts, and the other shops had some park-specific stuff, but mostly they were the same.  The World Showcase shops in Epcot had the most variation, and it was there I saw the most disturbing thing.

We were in fake Mexico, in the fake market inside.  I leaned forward to look at an anklet, and then threw myself backwards when I got a closer look at the mannequin ankle it was displayed on.  (I may have overreacted a bit, but it took me by surprise.)

It’s unnerving, right?  Is it a heeled shoe with toes?  A bare foot with a built-in heel?  Makes me shudder just thinking about it.  Someone miscalculated with this one.

    Yeah, you maybe overreacted a bit. It’s a bare foot with a little tab underneath to simulate her(him? it?) standing on her (see above) toes. Come on!

    Actually, I first saw this picture when I glanced over Bob’s shoulder as he was reading your blog. I thought it was your foot! It looks like your foot–long and slender and elegant. Maybe you could become a foot model.
