I really, really had wanted to post every day this month, but setbacks can and do happen.  Take my exercise program, for one.  I’m now the proud owner a huge swollen purple penis foot.

I’d like to be able to tell you that it happened saving some little brown girl from a semi barreling down upon her in traffic (which, incidentally, is what I’m telling other little brown girls that ask), but that would be a lie.

You see, I slipped getting out of the shower the other day and man, did I fuck things up.  It’s hideous.  The doctor says it’s going to take weeks for it to stop hurting and get back to normal.

I’ve managed to convince myself that I can get back to the gym next week (okay, so I realize the stairmaster and the elliptical may be out, but the bike, surely the bike, must be okay on the ankle.  Right?  Right.).  I’ll let you know how it goes.

I’m with Erin, though.  This showering thing?  For the fuck’n birds.

So sorry that happened to you… I’m not even going to try to make you laugh, there isn’t anything funny enough to make purple go away.

a swollen purple penis foot? oh, lord what i wouldn’t do to have one of those! you do realise that fancy hollywood types and eccentrics specifically go to plastic surgeons to get one of those, don’t you?

take advantage of your purple penis foot. truthify the story and get one buxom pharmacists to give you a penis foot massage or rub some lotion on it or somethin’. you know, for a person of your lawyerin’ acumen, you’d think i wouldn’t have to point out these things. i mean, really.

I have heard that sex will burn calories, so I say stick with the little brown girls!
