The Ugly Toe Club

Disclaimer: This post has almost nothing to do with IF, but we can make a plan!

The other day Aunt Sassy ran around her house in a hurry. (That’s her story, and she’s sticking to it!) To make matters even worse, she rounded a corner or something and didn’t get her poor little toe out of the way fast enough. It got all swollen, red & purple and hurt like hell, and yup! She broke it.

But like all other members of the Ugly Toe Club she’s a toughy! Melissa was the first to welcome her and now we’re making it official.

Calling all Ugly Toe club members: no more hiding your crooked pretty feet in dainty Jimmy Choo’s or comfy crocs. (Eat your heart out GF!)

Its rollcall time!

If you have a crooked toe, snap it and show us! Whether you broke it when you tried to get your foot in or out of a stirrup or when you rounded the ultrasound machine. You might’ve bumped it into the bathroomdoor on your way to do the POAS thingy, or you misjudged the hardness of the corner of the bath when DH helped you with an IM and the PIO proved to be more painfull than you remembered and you kicked…

Whatever the way you got a crooked toe, even if (like me!) you cannot for the life of you remember how it got there, get into it and share it with your blogosphere buddies!

And just to show you I’m not scared, here is what qualified me for the Ugly Toe Club! Or in true IF fashion: the UTC (we just love our acronyms!)



If you’re reading here, consider yourself tagged to reveal your qualifying toe to the world.

Sassy my dear… I dare you!

PS: If you don’t have a crooked toe, and want to show us your feet too, go ahead!

LOVELY Idea. I post pics of my pedicures. Does that count?

Furrow said...

Hmm. I'm almost sorry to say that I actually have very nice toes. But if you ever want to see some wonky elbows, let me know.

My toes are actually normal. If I figure out a way to post a picture I will (after my next pedicure that is...)

My Reality said...

This made me laugh! The one thing I have going for me are OK feet. They are relatively small and my toes are lined up alright.

Here is a link to a post from last September when I went for a pedicure with Krista, a fellow blogger. My feet are on the right and Krista's are on the left. I must say, my feet don't look so great in this picture, maybe it is time for a new pic!

I don't know if the link will work or not. . .

My Reality said...

Ok, the link didn't work, but I tried!

KarenO said...

MyReality, the link worked, thanks! Everyone else lucky enough to have their toes all in a neat row, feel free to let me know about your feet-pics too. :)

My feet are terrifying. Congenital Hallux valgus (bunions, to the rest of us) have lead to crumpled little toes and bizarrely pointy feet. And then, adn then, insult to injury, the hairy toes that I'm too chicken about pain to pluck!

I think I'll put my socks back on now.

Schatzi said...

heeheehee. That is quite a crooked toe you got there. Now, I am never one to back away from a challenge...

but i'm looking forward to perusing others' blogs for the UTC!
peace

nice pedicure! I have broken two of mine. I broke one chasing the cat! I already posted my feet on my blog. I don't think the world is ready for that again. My entrance to the Ugly Toe Club came with the removal of the bones in both my large toes - no bones, no toenails. Frostbite will get 'cha!

very funny post, good idea.

I love it. I should post a picture of my feet and my wonky little toes, which I blame on wearing pointy flats all through high school (now it's strictly rounded- or box-toed shoes for me). They've gotten better over the years, but still don't look good. Then, we have my hands. If I straighten all my fingers, the tips all point upward (to make them actually straight, I have to bend them down a bit). One of my friends loves to see me point so he can ridicule my crooked fingers. Nice.

Gunfighter said...

Crocs!


We need to talk, Karen, mevrouw!

OK< you don't want a picture of my destroyed feet, after they have spent nearly 8 years in the infanftry.

Trust me!

I have feet that make all of Your's look fine. Don't have a digital camera (I broke mine) or I would post a pic, but I will never have a man because of my feet :(
