Is going without socks in sandals flaunting it? Is it considered utter nudity or just scandalous? A new Mennonite survey this fall is taking to the streets with a survey to see what it reveals! From the streets of Abbotsford British Columbia to Gnadenau Kansas and all the way to the red dusty roads of Colony Bergthal in South America; our reporters who are on location will finally put a voice to these unanswered questions. Is it ok to wear sandals without socks when going to have faspa at neighbors? What about different occasions? Weddings, funerals, congregational meetings or a first date? And what does it say when a husband gets to go without socks in sandals and yet his mumpchji uses foot coverings?
Some of the comments have already begun to come in. John Rempel of colony Waldheim said, “I don’t have an opinion because I don’t beglotz other women’s feet,...I don't even know why they use purple nail polish on their toes anyway”. Our reporter claims this comment brought about a scowl from the Mrs. Rampel-shu. Yet another view from Oumpchji Hein Lepp in Herbert Saskatchewan was; “why should I be ashamed of my feet and cover them?! I haven't had shame in 67 years and I'm not about to start now!” And then there’s the Mrs.Peita Dyck-shu who said that, “I think they should make it mandatory for everyone to wear socks with their sandals. The last time we went to a funeral and John Poetker walked in with his long green toenails, I couldn’t even eat faspa because the sight made me so kolkjarich, which was really sad because they even had strawberry rhubarb squares!"
