Afoot

After his morning jog, Fred rubbed his aching ankle until his foot came off.
Surprised, he dropped his foot. It fell on the floor.
He could still feel it.
Reaching down, he picked it up, and turned it over in his hands.
He watched himself move his toes.
Then, he tried to put his foot back on his ankle.
It connected, and he moved his toes again.
Slowly, he stood up, and his foot stayed on.
He walked around a bit, and nothing unusual happened.
That weekend, he bought new jogging shoes.
And wicking socks to help with the sweat.
