I was planning to write more tonight. Unfortunately, I had a small accident. I was going to take a badly needed bath. So while I was waiting for the tub to fill, I grabbed my guitar and tried to play Paul McCartney’s beautiful and unique “Michelle.” As usual with just about anything I do, I lost track of time. Suddenly I realized that and so I wanted to get back to the bathroom before it flooded. I put the guitar back in its usual place and rushed out the door. But… My foot got caught in the guitar strap.
I did not fall. I did, however, come to a sudden stop and my right toes got jammed down on to the floor. It hurt. But no more than a badly stubbed toe. I figured within 30 seconds it would all be over. Well, I probably should have iced it, but I have no ice. And it is two hours later and it still hurts quite a bit. I suspect it will be fine tomorrow. I think it is most likely a sprain, because where it hurts is along a line that runs about a half inch from each of my toes. More than anything, it bruised my ego. I feel like a total idiot. And why do I even have that strap on the guitar? I never use it!
Anyway, here is Paul McCartney singing the song for our First Lady:

Now it is just my big toe. It could be a little fracture. I’m walking pretty funny. And slow. But after much pain, I got my foot in a shoe. It does feel better there!
