Yesterday, after checking my emails in the morning, I needed to get the computer packed away. My favourite place to work during the holidays is on the couch - I have a sway-back so this is the post supportive position for me. Flicked my foot out... oooh that's a bit numb... walk it off. Take a step... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
Somehow with the numbness of my foot I hadn't realised that my toes were actually under the rest of the foot. Like trying to walk en pointe without the ballet shoes or the awareness that it was what I was actually doing. Fell over sideways with my right arm in the year holding my laptop aloft (can't hurt the electronic baby). Got up and walked it off... put my socks and boots on and headed out to do what I needed to that day. Bit sore, but OK.
Last night, got home and took my boot off. Rookie mistake. Big fat swollen foot right now with a healthy side serving of pain. Bandaged it up and got on with my day... no rest for the wicked.
I wish I could say that this sort of injury was rare... unfortunately, not so much. And as I sat down to write this blog post I realised that I had automatically popped my uninjured foot underneath me. Think this plants me firmly in the 'fool' camp.
