Broken - again.

I'm thinking about getting a foot and ankle transplant, because my feet are stupid. Last night I managed to sprain both my ankle AND my foot while walking to the bathroom.

Yes, I really am that cool.

I'm not supposed to walk on it at all for two days, which clearly is not going to happen, and then I get to use crutches! Won't that be fun? Yes, yes it will. Especially when Freya wants me to carry her.

Of course, it's not all bad, so I made a Pollyanna list:
  1. Excuse to watch TV and be waited on my my 2 year old
  2. Can't do laundry because it's in the basement
  3. Won't have to carry Freya
  4. At least the foot and the ankle are attached to the same leg
That's all I have so far, but I'm working on it. I was going to be Willy Loman from Death of a Salesman for Halloween, but now I'm trying to think of something better for which crutches are a natural prop, any ideas?

No ideas for Halloween, sorry, but I do wish you a speedy recovery! Take care of yourself.

Oh, Trick-or-Treating should be interesting on crutches, eh? I'm so sorry!

Too bad you live so far away, I'd let you borrow my broom to get around faster. ;-)

Feel better-- and thanks for the comment. I knew you would understand. ;-)

Well, you could always be Pollyanna.

I think you should get a bill and a tail and walk around as George Bush, the lame duck.

Hope you feel better soon.

How about dressing up as some sort of athlete? Then you'd be a broken jock. You could go as a football player, or a soccer player or a hockey player.

Be the author from that Stephen King movie with Kathy Bates....the one where she sledge hammers his ankle...

Cathy said...

Ow. I hope you recover quickly. I mean, you want to recover, right? So you can hoist children and revel in the laundry.

Right?

Still in pain?

I would be too.

A mummy? They have crutches sometimes. Or you could wear a t-shirt that says, "VERBAL" and see if anyone figures that out. (Verbal crutch -- HA!)

You could dress up as a queen of some small, remote village, then get a wagon and have someone pull you around in it while you perfect the "parade wave." See simple!

Hope you feel better soon...sprained ankles SUCK.

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. But I was just wondering - isn't Freya like 3 now?

Did you get any drugs for it?

That could be a plus.

Legal drugs.
