The stubbed toe blues

I stubbed a toe pretty badly last Saturday. That's not particularly news for me, because thanks to my poor depth/spatial perception, I stub toes or misjudge doorways and run a shoulder into a wall a lot. But this one basically involved accidentally kicking a corner in the wall at near full walking force, and a week later one of the three toes I hit still hurts. (Yes, I iced it that night and the next morning, and applied some heat a few days later.)

It's not broken, as far as I can tell (after lots of experimentation with poking & moving to see what makes it hurt); but it was pretty badly bruised, and while it's slowly but surely healing, what's left of the bruise still extends both across the end knuckle and in a line directly under the nail cuticle. As long as I stay off of it and periodically pop some ibuprofen, it's only a cross between a dull ache and a very strong itch. But when I walk and bend the toe upward at the back of my stride, it definitely reminds me exactly how unhappy it still is.

And this morning LE decided I needed to take her on a mile-long stroller ride, preceded by a session of running up and down the hall while demanding, "Daddy run!"

-sigh-

On the plus side, "To the Shock of Miss Louise" (from the Lost Boys soundtrack) just came up on random shuffle as I started typing this, and the twisted calliope music brought a smile to my face.
