Okay, this is just too weird not to share
Did I mention the lump on my foot? I had a lump on my foot. One morning last week, I got up, took a shower, went to step out of the shower, and it felt like I'd stepped on a big old pebble. OUCH!
Except I DIDN'T step on a pebble. I didn't step on ANYthing, other than the bathroom floor. It felt like I had a big old LUMP on the bottom of my foot, on the ball-part where the little toe connects. Except there WASN'T any lump; not anything visible, anyway. That foot looked exactly like the other foot, except it felt like there was a giant pebble (think somewhere between dime-sized and quarter-sized, and fairly flat, not round) taped to the bottom of my foot, so that each time I'd take a step, I'd have to LURCH. It wasn't really terribly painful; it just FELT weird, like that part of my foot was asleep and tingly and had a giant pebble taped to it.
Oh lord. Is it just me? It's just me, isn't it?
So I hobbled around for a few days, going to work and running errands and setting and checking the cemetery trap, and by last Saturday (the day of the party! yippee!), I noticed that my foot was starting to bruise. That whole one side of my foot, along with my little toe, was all black and purple and bruise-y. And by SUNday, the "lump" feeling was going away. The foot looked like somebody hit it with a hammer, but at least I wasn't careening madly anymore.
Today? The foot is still horribly bruised, but it FEELS normal, except for perhaps a little tenderness.
What. da. fuq.
How did I suddenly develop a giant invisible lump on my foot? And how did it go away? And why did my foot get all bruise-y?! It's aliens, isn't it? It's aliens coming to live in my foot.
Given the way things are going lately, that sounds like the most logical explanation. HA.
