Bah, humbug. (My toe hurts.)

While getting the stupid artificial Christmas tree out of the stupid storage closet, a stupid 20 lb. weight fell hard onto my toe.

Remember in A Christmas Story when Ralphie said "fudge," but he really said something else? Yep, I said that something else, too.

My wife asked me if I wanted to go to the ER. I gave the typical male answer.

And what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't post a picture of the pain?

Oh my gosh.. OUCH. I almost said something about not going to the doctor, but I'm just as bad.

YIKES! The bloody photo (literally and Britishly) made my skin crawl ... so, of course, the browser froze on it for several seconds.

Love the expertise of the bandage. Is that Band-Aids new line to complement your kitchen paperware?

You sound like Liz. Stupid tree. :) Sorry for your toe. :(

that's why you should always have a real tree. Artificial ones cause bodily harm. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Why, WHY did I click on it?! It's because I care about you--I was willing to stomach the gore in order to feel your pain.

Heal soon :(. Happy holidays :).
