Just Say No.

To clogs.

It's finally happened. The little paranoid nightmare in the back of my mind has finally come true.

On Saturday night SFG and I went to Franklin Fountain. On wrong misstep in my Dankso tartans and bam! One osseous avulsion fracture along the dorsal talar head, or one broken left foot.

I tripped on a step and twisted my foot. After I almost fainted and threw up from the pain, SFG hailed a cab and dragged me home. I think everyone thought I was absurdly wasted because I said I wanted to throw up and pass out out loud. This was Old City after all. They see that kind of stuff all the time.

Yesterday SFG and I worked at The Canary for the last day of the Hellish Parade of Red Hat Society Followers, erm Flower Show. It was a crazy week and it ended on a crazier note.

So now I am laid up in bed for the day with ugly shoe thingy and crutches until I get to the podiatry institute on Friday to decide what they're going to do with my foot.

Remember: Clogs can kill.

Or at least painfully maim.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I had Dansko professional shoes, and after spraining my ankle 3 different times (and being in The Boot for 6 weeks the last time), I changed to a different shoe.
When I went to the shoe store, the sales guy said "Oh yeah. The Dansko Roll."

Grr. Sorry about your foot. Hope you have a quick and painless recovery.
