well, okay.

Lucy: Mom, why do you always tell us to 'just go barefoot?'

Me: Well, your skin is an organ, and the ground is full of things that your body can use, like minerals and stuff, so playing barefoot helps all those things go into your body through the skin on your feet and makes you stronger and healthier.

Lucy: Oh. Well, the ground is also full of things my body can't use. Like fire ants...scorpions...pricklies...dog poop...
