While we are on the subject of toes … that is, the ones not chewed off by a Jack Russell Terrier (see yesterday's gruesome tale): After being tied up and held at gunpoint by a burglar, an Atlanta woman used her toes to type an instant message for help.
Using her feet, Amy Windom managed to open her laptop bag, navigate to AOL Instant Messenger and peck out the message “CALL 911 POLICE” to her boyfriend.
"It took a little while to work it out, but I used the right toe on the touch pad to move the mouse around and then I could right or left click with the right toe and then I used my left foot to clamp down on the power cord and hit the various keys as best I could to type out the messages," Windom told The TODAY Show.
