My Aching Toes

Last week as I was disposing of my poor little parakeet, carrying the cage out of the living room, I jammed my big toe of the left foot on the gargantuan scrapbook of Ireland I finished and left at the side of a chair. The cage went flying through the air, seed, water and a dead bird tumbling on the old rug in the living room. OWWWWEeeeeeeEE!!! Oh my goodness it turned kind of red and purple in the joint area of the toe. I walked so carefully for a few days that my calves were in pain on the left leg. Now, this morning, I tried to sleep in but once the alarm goes off I just can't sleep. I knew that it was trash day and there were a few things in the fridge that had to go out so up I got. Here I am, 5 am, cleaning out my refrigerator of nasty brown stuff and I drop a heavy green bowl on the other big toe, right on the edge of the nail bed. OWWWWWEEEeeeWWE!!!! Damn, Damn, Damn! I would post pictures but I know some readers have issues with feet, especially feet and toes that need a pedicure and are turning black and blue under the pink nail polish. I will probably lose that nail dammit! I can't believe it. Maybe it's time to invest in steel-toed house shoes.

Ohh man!! I would have cried. You poor thing. Good thing it's summer so you don't have to put your poor toes into shoes. But steel toed boots do sound like a good idea.

My word verification is: shoem

Why does that happen? The one spot on our entire body that's already in pain and it gets hurt again?! It's so not right!
