Aha. I'm definitely lazy enough at times. I tried again in the shower tonight... I succeeded but unfortunately I cheated. I used a corner to hold it still while I got it between my big toe and second toe, then grabbed gently and pulled it up. But... I mean it's ridiculously hard to do. You get major credit for doing that, BigR. Wish me luck with the TV remote!

I can even put papers in between my toes and hand foot them off to people while still sitting in my desk. It's great!
I do that with pencils. The typical response is for the recipient to refuse the pencil and go get another one, because it was "gross" that my foot touched it.  ...? Its the same as a hand!

I can write with my feet... sort of.  It requires a large pen to pull it off.  I can also pick up and toss things with my feet.

Sometimes I like to grab the cat's tail with my toes... which always causes her to give me A Look.  Cheesy

My cat is not so... restrained.  Also, my podial penmanship -I will consult Oxford for the proper adjective, but I like the alliteration- is rather good.  I can unlock and open doors with my feet!  And apply lipliner (this I learned after watching The Breakfast Club one time too many).

I pick up everything with my toes/feet haha. My boyfriend used to give me strange looks now he just smirks and shakes his head at me....

A lot of the time I just use one foot but if it is a larger/heavier object I use both feet together. We just got a new puppy and I've been throwing her toys with my foot to play fetch with her. I think I started doing these things out of being too lazy to bend over and pick things up haha  Undecided

Also a friend of mine from high school once "palmed" a softball with his foot.  No joke.

My wife is monkey toed, but I'm worse....  I can control my toes to the point of sticking up just the middle one.  I freak out people all the time because even with my Kso's on I can pick up golf balls, keys, pens, etc.  A mechanic dropped a bolt (working on another car) while I was getting my car MOT test done and I picked it up with the VFF's on as it rolled by and just freaked him out Grin

So Griffin, a fellow saaber?

It meant to ask if you were a Saab enthusiast..  A Griffin is the marque's symbol and many use it in their "screen" names Wink

Ya, my wife says its a turn off. I can pick up pencils, paper (crumple it with my feet 1st), phone, remote, etc. It drives me nuts that i cant get my 3 middle toes to move independently (though briefly i was able to bend 2 of the middle toes on my left foot at the knuckle closest to the end).
