who knew I’d be slower without crutches?!
yes, yesterday I finally got rid of the damn things. the doctor said to go cold turkey: no cane. I’m wearing this walking boot (about as big as a ski boot) that doesn’t let me bend my foot past 90 deg. and moving very… awkwardly.
So I need to get used to walking not with my arms but with legs again, and I am ultra-slow. but it’s no matter, I can hold an umbrella! and the callouses on my palms and the bruises under my armpits will start to fade away (along with my massive triceps and right leg!) and I can drink my (much needed) coffee as I limp to class! ahh, life is beautiful again…
and to celebrate the casting off:
if you don’t get it, it’s based on the milk ad that runs in quebec: “un verre de lait c’est bien, mais deux c’est mieux”.
