Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I can't accurately answer the question without knowing which answer was provided by your wife.

I haven't read the original question, but let me help.

After years of marriage, I've learned in any dispute the wife is right.

There are vanishingly few times when your wife will concede you have won an argument. Don't waste one on this.

I think you guys are missing the psychological element besides the ick element. One hot summer night in France I was awoken to the most blood curdling scream every emitted by Man around 3 AM in the morning. Shaking the rags of my woolly cotton speep drunk mind I prepared for mortal combat or at least such mind boggling horror as to send Cthulhu running.

In the darknes barely lit by a sickly moonlight shining from the hall window, I saw my wife... She stood white as a sheet on the stone tiles of the hall just beyond the bedroom, one leg oddly lifted as if she were a flamingo. The tortured cry still mirrored by the twist of her lips and the mad wide open eyes. Where her foot once stood was....

a toad.

Who looked pretty annoyed himself I can tell you. He proceeded to give me the merry go-round as my wife insisted I chase the intruder out of the bedroom, through the patio doors which had remained open due to the warmth of the summer night.

My childhood home was pretty small, and had an outdoor toilet (fully plumbed, mind you, but inhabited by a happy crowd of the spiders for which Australia is famous). As the youngest child, I got to sleep in the enclosed back porch. This was the route everyone had to use to get into the backyard and/or go to the toilet. There was also a cat-door, so our moggies could come and go on their murderous errands. Frequently they brought gifts.

So early one morning when I was about seven years old I had to go out into the cold to have a piss. And I stepped out, down the step, into the sticky, disemboweled remains of a rat that one of the cats had donated.

And that's why I wear slippers.

I can't recall anything about slugs besides my mother torturing them to death with salt.

I do marvel at (and envy) our dogs' ability to step over poop or pee on the floor even in the dark.

I too have stepped in rodent guts. More than once. But barefoot feces is the worst. I wouldn't even dignify the slug answer.

Having done both, I "prefer" the dog poop actually. Easier to clean off.

Didn't need to be barefoot to step on a roofing nail that went right through the sole of my lawn mowin' shoes and into my foot. Went inside, hollered to my wife that I was going to get a tetanus shot, and drove to the ready clinic. The NP asked how long ago I'd stepped on the nail. I looked at my watch and said "About 45 minutes." She said I'd be fine. (And I was.)

But I couldn't help thinking of this song, a favorite from when my children still listened to "children's music."

I am both fascinated by and repulsed by dog poo. I can't stop staring at it when I see it, yet if I step in it, I want to throw my shoes out.

Stepping in a dog bomb barefoot is bad, but I think hitting a fresh one with a weed eater is worse. You end up covered.

It was the "yes you slip and fall down" that pushed me over the edge between the two choices.
