On Friday night, I picked up one of these handy things at IKEA:
While I write (almost exclusively) in our tiny office during the day, I often do late-night research in front of the TV. And a laptop on a lap is hot. A laptop on a pants-less lap — because I'm wearing shorts, not because I'm a nudist after hours — is probably very ill-advised.
So the BYLLAN is a no-brainer.
On Saturday afternoon*, I broke my right baby toe.
I walked into Matthew's shoe. There was a crunching sound. And PAIN.
Don't ever pick me for your sports team. I can't even walk like a reasonably coordinated human, apparently. See chart below:
Now my office is on the couch. And my new IKEA purchase has been a job-saver.
At least I painted my toenails before the injury, right?
*I haven't been outside since the toe-crunching incident. Because it hurts to walk. And it REALLY hurts to wear shoes.
Broken toes can take up to 6 weeks to heal. Sigh. I guess I'll be wearing taped toes and sandals — instead of super-cute pink heels — to weddings this summer.
Have you ever broken a toe? Please share your encouraging "it will heal faster than you expect" stories. (Did you end up with super-athletic ability? A Rookie of the Year story? Man, I LOVED that movie....)
