That time, I go to my uncle's farmhouse. My cousin said that it's a very beautiful place, and my mother say that it tooks only an hour to travel there. I have carsick, but maybe I can travel in one hour without vomitting. So, I 've got itchy feet when I heard that news. I thought that it is going to be a wonderful road trip. But, it turns out, it tooks not an hour but two hour and a half to get there. That feelling of itchy in the feet is gone when, I got out of the car and vomit instantly. Even in the farmhouse, it is very boring. Next time, when I am invited to a road trip like that, I completely have cold feet and I try not to say any word that tell everybody secretly that I like to go. If I do, I will shot myself in the foot. Bang, Bang, Bang!

Then they decided that they'd never allow me to travel alone again. So I cannot say that again till I get married with someone. Don't you think I am so pity?

I have got itchy feet to be in UK as soon as possible. But my visa processing is taking longer and that in turns delaying my job there. I opted to go for an urgent treatment of my visa application.

I am delighted to my decision; otherwise I might have ended up shooting myself in the foot.

Does my father have athletes foot or athletes feet? Both of his feet are affected by the disease.Also if I have hot feet, is that the same meaning as itchy feet.I had dinner with a family who had recently lost their mother to cancer. I opened the wine bottle and, getting ready to pour the drinks, I said, "Ill be mum".There was of course a very awkward pregnant silence. Is this an example of somebody having shot themselves in the foot?MT

Regarding shooting one self in the foot, yes I have done it several times and will do it several times more. The most fascinating is when one don't learn form the mistake, one does the same thing once agin. And to be honest I'm somewhat of a specialist in that field.

I really enjoy the overhead - cab due to it's usefulness in transportation in high mountain .
