I am such a Thule!!!

So last night I was helping my friend Misty move. I always keep my Thule bike rack in the car. As I was pulling out a lawn chair the bike rack fell out landing square on my big toe! A silent scream ensued and I hobbled the rest of the evening. When I got home and took off my shoe, I noticed the blood soaking my sock. My toe was really swollen and purple. It landed below the nail. Nancy helped clean it out (completely grossing her out). This morning I was surprised it didn't hurt more than it did. Still really swollen and starting to throb like in the cartoons. I am limping around and really mad at myself for making such a stupid mistake.


  1. okay...I am very sad that your foot is swollen and that you are limping. But on the flip side, I'm chuckling a bit at the thought of a cartoon version of Dan Belmonte with a silent scream and the toe throb! I really hope it heals quickly for you...sounds like you have a good nurse on hand. It is something that I would do to myself...always dropping things on my toes. Have a great Easter!

  2. D'OH! youch! you and Nancy both deserve medals for that adventure!
