{facts and findings}


i broke another toe. i do that a lot of the time. my toes are even more fragile than my porcelain pride or my pottery heart, and i am the proverbial bull in the china shop that is my self.

in short, i tried to walk into the bedroom and only got most of myself there. my pinky toe, i left in the hallway behind the door frame. at the time, i was carrying towels, which i threw on the floor as i hurled my body in the direction of the bed, beating my fists into the sheets and pillows and yelling ferociously at the night table. {in all fairness, the night table was completely innocent.}

facts and findings: i can yell very, very loud.

i'm considering retiring my feet and just renting a person to give me piggyback rides everywhere. then, i could wear 12 inch high heels and not worry about falling over or being taller than barclay. plus i could run marathons and not even get tired.

  1. Ok, seriously. Your gift with words (& humor) just blessed me and gave me a much needed laugh. Tonight my kids and I found 1 of our 3 gerbils dead and another one almost dead. Was feeling sad but you just brought a smile. Thanks Suzy.

  3. Owwwwie! Poor you and poor pinky toe! Walking is dangerous stuff.

    Big question, did you swear? I would have sworn. A lot. Swearing is 100% justified in situations such as these. Even if you don't swear in real life it's still allowed.

  4. aw, chantelle. i'm sorry it's so sad around your house. :( so glad i could bring a wee smile.

    jen: you tell me. was it ok? :)

    shelley: haha, well my first reaction in these kinds of situations isn't even intelligible. it's more of an anguished, "AAAHHHHHUUUUUGGGGHHHHH". it feels good to get it out. :)

  5. I once thought that a series of cartwheels in the living room sounded like a good idea until my foot came down on our brick hearth and I broke every toe on my right foot. I had a cast on up to my knee. You have no balance when you have a whole foot of broken toes. Since then I've broken 3 more toes (all on the right). I'm beginning to think I have no balance or grace to begin with.

    I am so thankful I found your blog. I just read a few lines out loud to the room and we decided we love your writing.
    Except I knew this long ago and feel like I post the same comment every time.
