So - you'd think with all the down time I'm forced to partake in because of my stupid broken ankle I'd be writing more.
You'd think with all the drugs I've been taking to numb the pain of the broken ankle I'd have plenty of nonsense to babble.
You'd think that the combination of drugs and down time would inspire grand plans about what I can and will do when I'm mobile again.
But my immobility has made the Dumb Asses that did this to me even more destructive. Nurse Shrek has been fetching and carrying for me so much they're feeling neglected. So neglected that new things have joined the menu of 'Things we can eat' at the Dumb Asses favorite restaurant known as Our House. The office chair, my bath scrubbing poof, my sleep eye mask have all been on the menu of late, usually preceded by an appetizer of tissues or paper towels and dog bed. It has been downright brutal around here. Thank goodness our garbage bill isn't by the pound.
And yesterday, while it was thundering outside, my shoes were apparently added to the menu...
Well, not shoes but shoe. And not any shoe but the one left shoe I've been wearing the few times I've be upright and outside since I was T-boned by the Dumb Asses 20 days ago. Note the difference in color of the insert. Left Shoe's insert is that color because the 60lbs Dumb Ass gummed it while he was busy munching on the straps. And by gummed I mean soaked it so throughly it was dripping. Just... Ew!
Nurse Shrek and I are outnumbered and we're running out of things for them to eat. I've seen them eyeing my cast. I stay still long enough, I'm pretty sure I'm next on the menu.
Silver lining- while I'm not writing and not babbling or coming up with my purpose in life, I will be now waiting for the straps of the My Left Shoe to make its way out of Dumb Ass Joe's ass. And, because I'm bedridden because of the Stupid Broken Ankle, I'm not the one who has to deal with it when it doesn't quite clear the exit.
Is it wrong that it makes me smile...?
My name is ej. I'm a girl. I say that because with the short hair and the short initials, folks aren't always sure. More brilliant insights to who I am in About me
