Okay, so its time to go for broke and put my ugly feet out there on the internet for all to see:
I know running is a challenge for anyone, but for me, it has always seemed just a little bit tougher, what with the elbows jutting out of the side of my feet and all.
A few years ago, a friend came over to my house, during the summer time. I answered the door with no shoes on, and she immediately gapes at my feet and goes, “oh my GOD you didn’t tell me you had bunions! Look! I have bunions too!”
If I hadn’t already been spoken for, I could have married her.
At that moment, bunions went from being some shameful thing to some proud badge of courage to brag about – almost like beating cancer, but…dorkier.
I am not asking for sympathy here; nay, I’m demanding your adoration – YOU don’t have elbows sticking out of your feet, so what do you know about pain?
…But I still don’t know what to think about that second little toe. It hurt like all hell for a week or two, and I thought I was going to have to bid farewell to that little sucker; my second-favorite toenail…and then, the pain went away but the toenail didn’t. What a rip.
It is still nasty and discolored but apparently the second little piggy has taken a liking to me and is hanging on for dear life!
Fall off, or stop being purple!!
