Hey everybody! Time for another belated shot from me for Saturday Scavenger Shots. The word, Function, was chosen by Mr. 3GirlKnight. I immediately got the song from “School House Rock” stuck in my head called “Conjunction, junction, what’s your function?” Hence, the title.
Anyway, I wasn’t sure what to post – I could’ve taken photos of appliances and stuff and shown how they function. I was vacuuming yesterday with my lovely green and white vacuum cleaner. There’s a self-cleaning feather duster attached to the side, but it hadn’t occurred to me how it could self-clean. I found the lever for it and was just so excited, because all it did was open a latch to the functioning vacuum and the air would suck the dust off of the feather duster. I went around with the duster and took care of all the hard-to-reach corners and crevices in my apartment. Fun (I’m not being sarcastic)!
I had just finished a little Saturday shift at work and wanted to vacuum before my mom came over. So I was still in my work outfit, but I had taken my shoes off. I was rushing around and managed to jam my little toe into a chair leg, stopping me in my tracks if only for a moment. After some choice words and a bit of whimpering, I looked down at my pinky toe (it already had a blister on it from wearing some uncomfy shoes) and it was now larger than its sister toe on the other foot. By the time I was done vacuuming, my foot was throbbing. So I taped up the toe, put on my sandals and my mom and I went shopping at Wal-mart. Later that day I soaked my foot in some icy water and then bandaged the toe up with tape and cotton balls.
Is my toe broken? I don’t know. I’m not in constant pain, it’s just when I lean on that foot a certain way or…touch it. It’s going to be a little challenging to function with this toe (and by functioning I don’t mean things will come to a stand still, it just means it’ll be hard to walk properly – especially when I have to put work shoes on tomorrow – and then I’m supposed to get my new MP3 player this Wednesday and I was planning on going for more walks with the cool gadget), but I will manage and survive.
Here’s mah poor toe -The flip-flops I’m wearing have a picture of the United States in red, white and blue. Patriotic! Don’t be jealous.
