Bootless (but Corseted)


I was all pleased to be without the boot any longer, despite the swelling today (pushed things too much yesterday, I guess -- missing the whirlpool at physical therapy, sigh). But my trip to the orthopedist this morning resulted in another appliance, an ASO, which naturally I have already dubbed "the ankle corset" (nice lacing). Despite their claim that it "will fit in any type of shoe," it could not fit in the slip-on Sketchers, so I had to go home and get the Chuck Taylors.


Here's what it looks like all wrapped and ready to roll (minus the Chucks).

Something about that makes me think of Robin Hood! Hope the foot is healed up soon!

Thanks, QoE!

Thanks, too, Marja-Leena! Maybe it's those arm protectors -- we used to wear them while shooting bows.

I can't get over that print of yours The owl woman is amazing!

You need some black lace on that ankle corset....

Good luck with your healing process. I suggest that you anime up that boot a la Gothic lolita. I think big pink and black bows. or else, put a Hello Kitty muffler on it.

LOL -- I was just going to tell Cranky that I haven't even had time to Sanrio-fy it, but you beat me to it, Wendy. I think I have a couple of clip on Hello Kitty ornaments that I can add. Hmmm, goth Lo would be a change, but a bit tough with this face.

It's all in the attitude, Kate.
