The Toenail

Anyone who shares an addiction to Facebook with me might have noticed that I mentioned being happy about having all ten toenails again. In typical klutzy fashion, I opened my bedroom door (in the old place, I am lucky the new place has less doors I can injure myself on) and managed to rip off 90% of a toenail. However, I wasn’t wearing my glasses so when I looked down, I concluded that they were just badly stubbed. I wandered around the apartment and went to the bathroom to put on my makeup. By the time I looked down, there was quite a pool of blood. Sadly, it didn’t occur to me to take photos until just after I mopped up the worst of it, but you can see a pic of the cute bandaid that I used to deal with the situation until I had the chance to go and get a pedicure and a fake nail. It looks real enough with polish on, so I’m just going to have to be girlier than usual for a couple of months. Candace says it takes 6 months for a toenail to grow back… Crap!

Toenails are overrated!!!

PS. Mine have only grown halfway back since April. I'm looking forward to charing Christmas with my new toenails.
