Re: They came!
I had just about convinced myself to buy some sandals for disc... Then, somehow, I ended up with a splinter (looks like thorny brush) on THE SIDE of my big toe. It broke off in there and got swallowed up by the skin.
My gf picked at it for a while with a needle and tweezers until we got it out late last night. Now I carry tweezers in my bag.
If I can get splinters wearing shoes, sandals may be too dangerous.
