Betcha Didn’t Know

February 22, 2008


…that when a bare human foot collides with a Mr. Potato Head foot with the proper amount of force and at the proper angle, it produces a rather significant hole in aforementioned human foot. This remarkable and rare feat is surprisingly painful.

The incident required the surgical removal (with my nail clippers) of damaged tissue and the application of antibiotic cream and a sterile dressing (a Ratatouille Tattoo bandage, a Ratattooey, for short).

It has probably also escaped your notice that it is relatively difficult to photograph the bottom of one’s own foot.

In the interest of public safety and the common good, I am sharing these monumentally important facts with you. You have been warned.

    That is terrible! Obviously, with some of the toys we have around here, I have narrowly escaped death. I think that calls for a little celebratory knitting!

    Hugs!

    Ouch!!!! Legos aren’t much better, or pieces of dog food. Although, those probably wouldn’t put a hole in your foot! Is your tetanus up-to-date? I realize it’s not a rusty nail, but it still would be a puncture wound.
