Bob Jones was shocked to find his missing right foot as he began climbing the stairs to the parkade after dance class last Tuesday evening.
According to Jones, who grew emotional recounting his story, “The leg just seemed to appear under me. Until that moment, I always had two left feet. Then suddenly I noticed that this wasn’t the case at all. I had both a right and a left foot.”
Jones says that after his discovery he found it much easier to move around. “Before, with just two left feet, balance was always tenuous,” he recounts. “Now I’m actually able to stay upright when putting one foot in front of the other while walking around or moving from side to side.”
The biggest benefit, he claims, is when it comes to shoes. “With two left feet, I always had to buy two pairs of shoes. I have a closet full of extra right foot shoes that were never used. All those shoes are in perfect shape and now I can wear them. I won’t have to buy shoes again for years!”
Jones attributes this discovery to dance classes he began taking with his wife. “At first, I didn’t want to go,” he admits. “I resisted for a long time but finally gave in.” He found the classes surprisingly fun and entertaining. “The instructors are pretty funny, and the steps were not as hard as I thought. Before long, I was actually able to move in an organized way.” It was immediately after that first dance class that he made the unexpected discovery of his missing foot.
Now that Jones has both a left and right foot, he believes his future is bright. “Everything I do seems easier now,” he says. “Walking, running, workouts are all more fluid.” He looks forward to doing more of everything as he learns to use his newly discovered right foot, Especially dancing.
