Yes, like Daffy, I have taken a short trip.

I was coming downstairs and carrying the vacuum with the hose dangling. As I stepped onto the landing, the hose went right under my (bare) foot. This caused my foot to roll over the tube so that I came down with my entire body weight on the bent over toes of my right foot, causing a nasty sounding crack.

Words were said.

As they hung there, making the air blue, my toe started to turn purple and black and swell up.

The doc (in a box) says he can’t see any fractures, but that a radiologist will take a closer look later. He did say that I most certainly tore/hyper-extended/fubared the ligaments in my second toe. So, I am to stay off my feet as much as possible for THREE WEEKS.

Yeah, like that’s going to happen.

My boss was not pleased and I can’t say as I’m too thrilled about it either. I have to tape my toes together for these weeks and wear flat clogs.

It does, however, give me an excuse to say things like, “Oh, your book is over there ::pointing vaguely:: but I can’t go get it, sorry.” It also means I have a lovely excuse for delaying that exercise plan.

Still, it really hurts 😦

Anyway, check out this site for some silly fun:

…followed closely by the Twitter one.

“Swimmingly bombastic and tripping about noodles.”

“Politically bemused and dreaming of stubbed toes.”

Hmmm, how apropos.
