right foot

it´s not broken. but that x-ray tech was questionable. evidently sometimes broken bones don´t appear in an x-ray immediately. which sounds crazy. i really don´t feel like icing down right now.

also, i´ve decided that hurting my foot is my punishment for being a lousy traveler. when my foot was in sound condition, i didn´t take advantage of it (in a good way). instead, i slept in, didn´t work out, didn´t explore, and ate take out sushi for dinner 50% of the time. now that my foot is swollen and hard to walk on...just look at me. i´m all sorts of blogging, about to finish a pretty decent book and...well that´s all. but it´s better than yesterday. so, since i´ve been in a bit of an Aesop´s fables kinda mood today, i´ll say this- and i don´t know if it´s a John Milton quotation or not- if you don´t use your gifts (aka feet, legs) they will be taken from you (or rot, or break, or develop cankles).

PS- the name of the book I´m reading is The Clothes on Their Backs by Linda Grant. This silly computer won´t let me use links.

I've been reading a book Molly gave me -
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society
The main Character, Juliet, reminds us (me and Molly) of you. Think you would really like it.

i have never understood heels but i am all about shoes being comfortable - your collection of experiences will be priceless - i don't even have a passport, have never had one - i'm not against traveling, it's been more of a lack of opportunity, at this point there is so much of the US that I haven't seen, i need to start working on that
