Can I whine?

It's about the thing on the bottom of my left leg. I want it off. Like now. Not on November 14, but right now. And making things worse is the fact that I'm pretty sure this stupid thing isn't healing right, and? I have premonitions that on November 14 I'm going to go to get my cast off, and my (awesome!) doctor is going to say, too bad for you, you get 2 more weeks.

See, I'm a pisces, we're known to be a little psychic. I could really be right ya know.

It's such a pain in the ass to be casted. AND? Since most of you don't encounter me in daily life, like in the flesh as it were, I can tell you that this. thing. stinks. BAD. Like, two weeks-ish left to go and I can now smell it under my desk, stinks.

I'm sorry, innernet, but it's true. IRL friend Andrew, or Fraulein N if I ever run into you, I'm really sorry. Truly.

And I'm sad because I feel extra frumpy because I cannot wear cute shoe. (not shoes, and that's on purpose) It's either a sneaker or, heavens to Betsy, a crappy clog of the Crocs knock-off variety for me. I'm trying to own the foamy shoe look by accenting with fun socks, but it's a feeble attempt at best.

And Frema looks so cute in the picture, I want my F-me booooootssss! Wah!

Okay, I'm done. I promise not to talk about the cast again until it comes off. With the possible exception of one more entry floating around in my head on how people like to talk to those who are injured. Seriously, if it's this bad now, I can only imagine when I am pregnant!

Aww I'm sorry for your discomfort. I know how much leg casts suck, and I feel your pain.

One tip - sprinkling a bit of powder or, if you don't swing that way, baking soda, can do wonders for improving both odor and skin feeling.

If you feel like getting fancy, you can use scented body powder too, so long as you know it won't irritate your skin (because, in the wisdom of sixth grade, I sprayed perfume down my cast and my God, I have never wanted to tear a limb off so badly in my life).

My condolences on the mock Crocs though. I have never understood them as a shoe concept, and I can only imagine how it must feel to have to wear them.

Thanks for the compliment! Wearing the f-me boots is hard work, but they make me feel sassy, so they're worth it.
