Words I Realized: Leedis

Leedis [lee-dis], n – a piece of soft matter buried deeply within the crevice where one’s toenail meets the skin

Leedis is gross.  I’m not denying that.  It’s the congealed byproduct of consistently wearing dress socks on a hot day.  But if I spot a sizable build-up of leedis, it’s on.  You better believe I’m gonna carve very carefully to remove that son of a bitch in one piece.  There’s something oddly satisfying about chiseling out a heaping portion of leedis from your big toe.  It’s borderline triumphant.  And I play with my leedis after I remove it.  I do.  But I have zero interest in fucking around with small crumbs of leedis.  None whatsoever.

Juan’s mom expressed concern when she noticed the large, bloodlike discoloration in her son’s big toe, but breathed a sigh of relief when he explained that the spot was in fact red leedis from his favorite Christmas socks.

Wait, leedis?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?
