It is so seldom that people e-mail me random pictures of their body parts (and don’t get any pervy ideas here) that when Reader Colleen e-mailed me about her freak toe – the inspiration for my injuries post – I had to see it for myself.
Colleen writes, “For the record, I’m not as gross as my toes. When you’ve got one banana ruining the whole bunch, you kind of skimp on things like pedicures and nail polish…but somewhere above this toe is a pretty girl who should probably wrap herself in bubble wrap whenever leaving the house. I think the moon-shaped area is my new toenail growing in…not really sure how that works though. It’s almost like I have two or three(?) toenails now…the one on top and the one below that looks like a scab – yeech! BTW, my third toe is also suffering…notice the curvature (that’s from running into a church pew with no shoes when I was 8, broke my third and fourth toes). That third toe is so squished when I walk or run that I now have a 6th toe growing on the bottom of it in the form of a lovely blister!”
I must say it looks better than I thought from her description. I think your toes are downright cute. And don’t feel bad Colleen – my second toe is longer than my first too! Thanks for, um, sharing?
