Why My Left Foot Is In the News

My kids love watching Monsters, Inc. One of my favorite scenes is at the beginning, when Mike Wazowski, the one-eyed green monster sits down to watch a new commercial about his company. Mike appears on the screen at the end of the commercial…and is immediately hidden by the Monsters, Inc. logo. We expect that Mike will be heartbroken, but instead he bursts out excitedly, “I’m on TV!”

Saturday morning, I sat down with my laptop and Ed picked up the Chicago Tribune. It took him a couple of minutes, but then he saw an article about the Illinois Field Moms, and the trip to the hog farm that I recently took. One of my friends was on the front page holding a piglet! After I read the article (which you can read here) I headed to my computer to send my friend a link to the article, and found a picture gallery. Guess what?

My left foot is in the newspaper! (Kinda sorta…the virtual version of the newspaper, anyway. Click on the link; it’s the third photo down. You can’t miss my foot!)

As we were preparing to go into the pig barn, I sat down at a picnic table to pull on plastic boots. These foot coverings were to keep me from tracking in bacteria or viruses on my shoes that could harm the herd. As I pulled on one boot, the photographer from the Tribune knelt down in front of me to take pictures of my foot. As we entered the barn, the photographer tagged along with a different group, so he never took a picture of my face. Just my foot.

I feel just like Mike Wazowski!


Here I am, ready to go into the pig barn. Coveralls and hairnets are sexy!
