Stubbed Toes

 Stubbed toes are an occasional side effect of walking. I got drunk the other night and woke up the next morning with a stubbed toe. Actually, I have to admit that it was two stubbed toes, one on each foot. It was impressive. I’m normally not that sloppy. I must have stubbed them pretty bad because I had a legitimate cut on one and peeled skin on the other. I put socks on and went for a test walk. It hurt because my socks were sticking to the wound. I had to wrap bandaids around the two toes and put my socks back on. It worked but it wasn’t pretty. I don’t like having things between my toes so it was uncomfortable. It was also my day off and I wasn’t going to waste it so I manned up and spent my day walking the dogs with my buddies along Ocean Beach and all throughout Golden Gate Park. It was hell on my feet but it was also a hell of a day. I regret nothing. It would have been better without stubbed toes though.

Wearing a Band-Aid When You Don’t Need To

There’s something oddly comforting about wearing a Band-Aid when you don’t need to. Try it. Take a Band-Aid and stick it on your forehead. Notice how other people treat you. Notice how they treat you better. They assume that you’re injured and they feel bad for you. They even go out of their way to help you out. They send you sympathetic stares, they ask you questions out of concern, and they make you feel special and appreciated. All that attention is completely unwarranted, but they don’t need to know that you’re faking it. An unnecessary Band-Aid can be a fashion statement. Just look at Nelly. He’s still cool right?

Peeling Off a Band-Aid

Peeling off a Band-Aid hurts more than getting hurt. You get cut, you get a Band-Aid, you apply it to the wound, you wait a couple of days, and then you try to peel it off. But the adhesive that they use is designed to latch onto your body hair and rip it out. You can take your time and slowly peel off the Band-Aid and prolong your agony, or you can pull it off with one swift motion and potentially rip off your scab, which would require another Band-Aid and you repeat the cycle. Peeling off a Band-Aid is like unwrapping a Christmas present, except you expose a festering wound instead of getting something you want.
