As I dipped my toe in, the fish all swam towards me – in a somewhat menacing manner! As my big toe went under water they attacked and my foot shot up in the air.
Apparently I was grimacing at this point and people in the queue were starting to look at me and a silence prevailed as I began to lower my foot again.
Finally I submerged both my feet and immediately the fish focused on any hard skin in a heat seeking missile kind of way. It’s really gross when you think about it.
I mean they eat dead skin off my feet, then dead skin off 20 people per day! What happens to those fish when they die? Are they cooked? Who in under god would eat them!!
I must admit, I did feel I had amazing soft feet afterwards, but as I slipped my feet into my runners, I wondered at the wisdom of this indulgence in the winter?
It cost €10 for 10 minutes at Toys for Big Boys – so not expensive and most definitely a conversation starter!
