Foot troubles

August 27, 2011


So, I think I’m going to start complaining online about the various things that are going wrong with my body, since Lloyd is pretty sick of hearing it. All ailments are quite minor, so feel free to skip this post entirely, unless you like reading stuff from whiners. Today let’s complain about my toes.

Well, I’ll complain – you just get comfy.


Probably too early for that.

My bunion hurts. There, I said it. Lauren: never, ever wear those dumb ballet flats longer than a church service. I wore them on Monday and the left one cut right across the nerves on that dumb bump and HUUURT. I put 4 band-aids on but the elastic was still brutal. Idiot.

These pictures are not about something that hurts, but something that is deformed. My ‘little piggie that had none’ is a bit of a hammertoe. I hadn’t really thought about how I have a bottom-of-the-toe callous on the tip of it until I saw what it did to my ancient flip flop. Hmmmmm. That ain’t normal.

We called them thongs as kids.

I am sparing you a picture of the actual toes. You are welcome.

    You called them thongs? I’m guessing that made for some awkward transition when that style of women’s underwear became popular.

    I’ve been having alot of aches too, but in my back. I have degenerated disks in my upper back too, and lately my shoulder has been killing me. It feels like an elephant is sitting on it. And now my arm & hand is becoming tingly. The tip of my index finger I can barely feel. And I have these odd rashes, and allergies… But my feet are good….so far.

    Oops. Sorry. This was your session. Please delete.

      No, no -- it’s good if you share! I keep telling myself that these are tiny problems, and others have it worse. I need others to share troubles! Misery, this is your company.

    We called them thongs as well…when Brittney asked for a thong, she got a pair of flip flops and was quite confused for a while!

    That hole in your flip-flop is really weird.
    Though I do have to acknowledge that my slanty big toenail cuts holes in the tops of my socks…
