Perhaps I brought it on myself?
All this talking about having a crazy night out and I got myself injured.
It's not exactly like a took a bullet, in truth a dear friend stamped her stiletto heel into my toe, neatly ripping skin and nail from said toe. I was wearing my Jeffery Campbells, shoes so tall I thought it impossible anyone could have stepped up that high.
But I will take the injury, the stitches and the tetnis shot that came afterwards as battle scars.
