Tie Me Up

I jumped on some glass today and had to get stitches in my foot. I like gross things, but I got a little woozy this time. The only thing I could find to keep from bleeding on the carpet was a white sock. It is almost completely soaked and I tried to save it for Brendan to show him what a trooper I was - didn't even shed one tear! When I told him of this, he told me I had better dispose of it immediately or he was breaking up with me and moving in with his mother.

This has thwarted my plan for exercise tonight. My body hates exercise so much that it sabatoges me into sitting in front of the television with nothing to do but shove my face with fistfulls of leftover holiday chocolates.

Is this similar to people shooting themselves in the foot so they wouldn't have to go to Vietnam? Do you hate exercise that much, C?

Dang. I got so excited by the headline. Oh well, hope your foot heals. When I ran into a wall and had to get stitches in my face, a British doctor prescribed Guinness. Perhaps you should try this, too.

chris, when i was 18, i got my navel pierced and drank a bunch of guiness - was sitting down, knees to chest, playing a drinking game - and when i stood up, it looked like i had been shot in the stomach. i think that british doctor had it out for you.

how did you run into a wall?

thomas, i love to exercise, but my body doesn't. it just wants to be fat. stubborn, inconsiderate body.

oh no...stiches in your foot does not sound very fun. but sitting in front of the tv stuffing your face with leftover holiday chocolates sounds VERY fun. feel better soon.

did you get all the glass out? cause one time my grandmother jumped off of a fence onto a broken bottle when she was a child. and later, when the chronic pain in here foot was simply too much to bear, she went and got an x-ray and then they pulled a 60 year old piece of glass out of her. and i just think that there are probably better ways to store glass. unless it has microscopic state secrets etched into it. in that case, the foot is probably an alright spot.

silly jks, i would keep that with the rest of my microscopic state secrets - taped to the toilet lid. not the one you lift to pee. the one you lift to pull up the floater when the chain is broken. man...your grandma should have met me sooner.

Too bad for you Crystal. I hope you are doing better. I need to have surgery on my left knee. I ripped some cartledege playing footie and have never healed. The thing is... I could get most of it paid for with insurance but I am scared stupid about someone cutting open my body and moving things about. Does not seem natural to me.

By the way... I am delighted you utilized the word 'thwart.' This has always been one of my favourites and shows me that your vocabulary is up there with mine.

air conditioning isn't natural but it feels damn good.
