    Why is it you don't realize that you are out of bandages until *after* you gash the side of your foot open on a jutting piece of broken glass? Damn, it hurts.

    Ok, I put neosporin on it and folded some facial tissues and duct taped it to my foot. I don't look like a freak or anything.

    It's not like I got my foot stuck in a boot. :uhh: :biggrin:

    Everyone seems to be doing their best to hospitalise themselves. If you don't mind I think I'll sit this PF game out. Take more care Evo :tongue:

    Someone here has to come up with a fashionable Kevlar body suit for the sisterhood to keep them out of the ER. Think Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill"...

    I did that the day before my bike test, then I couldn't get my boot on over the bandage.
    I turned up for the test in black leather + kevlar bike gear, one stylish kevlar reinforced race boot and one rubber wellington.

    I already took care of my foot injuries for the month...those were the horrendous blisters (are they still considered blisters if you rub the skin completely off your foot?) I had from walking around Chicago in "cute" sandals at the beginning of the month, then got a blister between my toes when I switched to wearing "not-quite-as-cute" flip flops, and finally gave up and wore the hot sneakers with socks (hot as in foot temperature, not as in better than cute :yuck:). Apparently the only way to avoid getting blisters from my shoes lately seems to be going barefoot. :uhh:

    It's a sure sign you injure yourself too often if you've run out of bandages without enough time since the last injury to realize you need to restock your supply.

    I broke a large piece of glass and placed the pieces into a garbage bag, a piece pierced the garbage bag and was sticking out and I walked too close and <SLASH> .My next post will be when I carry the trash bag outside, forgetting about the jutting glass and slash my legs. (not that I haven't already done that) :redface:

    Oh I hate that, men don't appreciate what women go through to wear cute shoes. :grumpy:

    I'm a man (honest) and I can safely say its only women who like cute shoes. I don't care if you like wearing your oldest and most worn out pair of trainers as long as you aren't cutting you feet to shreds. :bugeye:

    I will never forget the time I wore a pair of 3" high heels and my cousin dragged me around Paris on foot, going UP and down cobblestone streets. The next day my leg muscles were so sore I wanted to die. Thankfully the day after I took the train to Nice and just lied around for a week. My female cousins borrowed my shoes.

    I just went to a wedding reception, was a lot of fun my cousin got hitched to a real lovely lady.

    But didn't get a taxi home because there were too many people, and I think we ordered them all.

    Walked home in new smart shoes, now have blisters on my feet, and blood leaking from my heals, and the worst thing is I could of just crashed at a friends house, but I didn't? Why? I'm wondering myself. Still no pain no gain :wink:

    Here's a tip on pain, in order not to feel it try and make yourself angry about something so you forget about it. Jesus that hurt that was not the most painful physical thing I've done in shoes. Walking round the lake district in army boots was, but thank God for that, it taught me how to handle mind numbing pain. owwwwwwwww that was painful.

    I'm averse to most ocassions of dressing up and things. I wasn't going to go to my graduation until my parents bought me a suit and insisted. They even got my hair done for me (which you can see on my public profile). I don't look like me.

    Oh ouch! If it makes you feel anybetter I'm limping around tonight. My 7 yr old Grandson, goated me into climbing a tree. The trip up was fine, but comming down, I jumped right onto a little rock. Of course I was barefoot, and of course my heel landed right on the rock. Its in the process of turning a wonderful shade of purple.:eek:

    Aye me too, I don't like dressing up but when your favourite cousin is getting hitched you have to.

    When I graduate assuming I do, I'm wearing nowt but my pride; certainly not attending the graduation ceremony, probably more work than the degree? :smile: I'm a shy by nature, I don't even like looking in a mirror, it reminds me of how mortal I look :biggrin:

    Congrats for graduating by the way, it's not easy and I hope you feel proud of yourself.
