    So I think I just broke my little toe. I was minding my own business, carrying some laundry to wash and the stupid fan jumped out at me!!! One of those round metal ones on a v shaped base. It grabbed my little toe on my left foot and hung on for dear life, so now it is red, swollen, and pointing east ..lol. Theres also a suspicious white dot on it near the foot that Im hoping isnt bone trying to poke though. Im off to the er, I know they cant do much for a broken toe, but when I wiggle my toes the big toe and the one next to it move, not the other three. And Im not babying it when I wiggled them either. I tried to get them to move, nope, no dice. Of course Ive been unpacking all day and Im hot and sweaty and need to take a shower first..oh and do something about the chipped polish on my toes too..haha!!

    Oh No!! Sorry about your toe!!! I hear a well place smack or two with a ball peen hammer cures those types of fans from that kind of behavior :twisted:

    I'm glad to know that you are taking the time to do a mini pedicure before going to the ER, I'm assuming you will be taking extra care with your hair and makeup too :wink: :wink: A girl must always look her best ya know!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Oh, so very sorry to hear about your toe. Don't you just hate it when they leap out at you? My husband has had couches and wall corners stalk and attack his little toes. We've been married over 32 years and I bet he's broken both little toes at least 15 times (combined). Talk about klutz!

    Take it easy and keep it up. (my mantra to my DH).

    Don't worry. You are not alone. I smacked into a chair in April. Could not wear shoes for over 3 weeks. Good thing I don't work. Hope yours does not hurt too much.
