Yesterday afternoon was just not the best day. I was cranky and restless. I’m sure it was obvious by my blog, especially since I didn’t realize that marked my 200th blog. (How ironic that Smashmouth is singing “Let a good thing go to waste” on my computer right now..) Darn! And to top it all off, I snagged my baby toe on a piece of furniture and really hurt the heck out of it.
This morning I woke up my usual cheery self. I rolled over to see Bess curled up next to my pillow and in front of her was an expired stink bug. I screeched, but Bess yawned and looked at me with a “So what?” gaze before settling back to sleep. I, on the other hand, immediately checked my ears to make sure I had no aliens living there.
When I stood up, my toe reminded me that it was ouchy and I looked down to see a beautiful purple blooming all around the base. The first thing that popped into my mind was “Baby Toe, I need you! For posture and balance.” but I was singing those lyrics to the tune of Candy-O by the Cars. Ok, strange, I know, but that’s how I roll.
I thought it would be funny to share this on Twitter with my family and friends who would not be surprised that I’d match odd lyrics to any song I can, and I got a reply from someone I’ve never seen before asking if I’d broken my toe. Since I don’t use Twitter that much, I didn’t think much of this, so I answered that my toe was a lovely shade of purple! About an hour later, I get another tweet from this same person asking if it hurts to touch and can I bend it. My first thought was, “I wonder if this guy is a podiatrist.” (do you SEE how frickin’ trusting *I* am??) So, what did I do? I sent him another tweet that said it was sore and swollen and hey… here’s a picture of the injured digit.
Only AFTER I pressed send did I wonder if I’d just made some perverts day, so I looked at this guys twitter feed only to see that he is, indeed, quite the foot fetish, asking women all over the world about their bruised or broken toes and asking for photos.
LMAO!! I *am* so blonde.
For any of you who don’t know Candy-O, here you go….
