Flip flops are a poor choice

Yesterday Sheona, her roommate Catherine and I went out to this area of Vancouver that is all wooded. I couldn't remember the name of it if I tried. But it is beautiful and there are trails and trees and wonderfulness. Sheona and Cat wanted to go for a run. I am not a runner. ever. I hate running. So we decided that I would go for a walk and they would go for their jog.

Not 5 seconds after they left did I go to double check the route I was going to take on the map. As I stepped close to the map my right foot kicked the cement pad the map was on. "^&*^$^@%$&(*" would be the language that came after. I looked at my foot and decided that flip flops were a poor choice of shoe and I had taken a massive chuck out of my big toe.

As I was bleeding I decided that I would be a huge whiner to not go on my stroll through the very pretty wooded area. Besides dirt stops bleeding. The walk was incredibly wonderful. I always feel so refreshed after being away from the city (even when it is away from the city, within the city). I continued to hurt my right foot with the bleeding toe at least 6 or 7 times in different ways. I kicked a rock because i didn't lift my foot high enough. I rolled my ankle while trying to step higher and coming down wrong. And my toe was sticking to my flip flop because of the blood. However, I made a loop through the woods and enjoyed every minute of my little walk; although I don't think I'll wear flip flops for something like that ever again.

I met up with Catherine and Sheona afterwards. I didn't want to be a whiner, so I tried to hide any limping I might have been doing. As we got to the car, I asked them if they had any hydrogen peroxide and bandaids at their house (in case I needed to go buy some).

The partner-person and I are going to give a joint blog a try. As Dave and I will be hitting the road in a few short months we thought we would keep a blog so that everyone would be able to keep up with us. Travelling isn't always condusive to emailing everyone; so we blog!

Welcome friends.
