So what has been giving me the shits this week?
Let's discuss feet and to be more specific let's talk about blackened toenails ... FFS
I'm guessing only runners have continued reading this post by now ... No FFS
HB and I have an ongoing competition, who has the most blackened toenails ... FFS
Toenails tend to turn black and fall off when you do idiotic things like run aimlessly for 3.5 hours straight ... FFS
Yeah and before all you running experts pipe up with your suggestions about better running shoes, socks, blister powders and tapes, well we have all that shiz ... FFS
In fact, we each have 4 pairs of expertly fitted running shoes that we use on rotation ... No FFS
That shit could have bought a Datsun 200B back in the day ... FFS
Yes, we were was born in the seventies ... FFS
I have been fairing well with my toes up until my 27km long run a couple of weeks ago ... FFS
One toe in particular has been throbbing ever since ... FFS
Wednesday night the throbbing reached a breaking point, I could not sleep because of the weight of the sheet on my toenail ... FFS
Uttering the word 'throbbing' in bed to your husband is probably not the smartest idea when all you want to do is get some sleep ... FFS
Yes, these are my first world fucking problems ... FFS
Yes, it's Winter and all we need is a sheet on the bed in Darwin ... No FFS
I looked at the toenail yesterday and decided to cut the blackened nail to see if that helped matters ... FFS
Usually there is a new nail growing nicely underneath ... No FFS
But something hit me square in the eyeball ... FFS
After I wiped my eye clear I looked down at my toe to see a pool of yellow pus forming ... FFS
The pain relief was instant and the throbbing subsided ... No FFS
After all my recent stomach issues the last thing I need is antibiotics, but I dutifully made a doctor's appointment anyway ... FFS
I wanted to ensure that it was not cellulitis brewing away ... FFS
Of course, the doctor gave me a script for antibiotics ... FFS
Of course, I didn't get the script filled ... No FFS
If my toe falls off, you can all say I told you so. ... FFS
I won this week's toenail competition ... FFS
HB wins too, because I can't remember the last time I had a pedicure .. FFS
There really should be a discounted pedicure for 6 toenails ... FFS
It really is the little things in life.
Cheaper than mofo therapy.
