One day ...

You are living life happily ... with all of your appendages.

And then one day, you lose one.

I mean, it might be considered a minor one, but an appendage nonetheless.

Well, I suppose that depends on your definition of appendage.

But that is beside the point.

So, there you are, happily living your life with 90% of the said appendages you normally had.

And then less than 18 hours later, you lose another one.


And then you are living your life, a little less happily than before with only 80% of said appendages. 

Oh, did I mention this post was going to show horrific photos of my feet?

Because it does.

But that is beside the point.

What is the point?

I am not quite sure.

Except for, when you lose 20% of your toenails in freak accidents less than 18 hours apart, it makes the experiences a lot more enjoyable when you find cute band-aides.

And may I suggest animal prints?

It's kinda like getting a lolly-pop at the doctor's office after you get shots. Hello, horrific life-event, but try to shmooze it over with something pleasant.  I would prefer to not have my toenails torn from my flesh, but, hey, if it is going to happen, at least I have something else pretty to look at while the ugliness ensues underneath.

So far, nothing has fallen off my body today. Thankfully. But I cannot help but wonder, who knows what I will lose next?

I am hoping for a single strange of hair or something insignificant like that.

Hopefully your week has been more put together than mine! Happy weekend!!! :)

I have never lost a toe nail, ever. Does this happen to you a lot?

Krystal said...

Well, at least it's just a toe nail, and not an actual toe!!!

Shan said...

Ouchy. I hope I never have to experience that.

Ouch!! I got really into running this time last year (and I plan to be back into it after I have this baby! Darn sciatica... I had to stop running because of it!) and I was a little worried about losing a toe nail! It just seems like it would be so painful! Hope yours grows back asap :)
