Limpy III - The Search for Socks

Right, so I can get a surgeon to cut my toe open and pop a steel rod in it, or I can just hobble around with sticky tape holding my toes together for a few weeks and hope for the best. I may have some arthritic pain once it heals (the fracture of my little toe is through two bones across a joint) which may or may not be circumvented by shoving steel into my foot. Then again, a foreign body in my poor little toe may cause an infection, and is the cure going to be worse than the slight discomfort I have now? It's not exactly painful - I've not felt the need for painkillers more than twice since Wednesday.

It's a rather anticlimactic end to what was an embarrassingly mundane injury to begin with. Thank you all so much for your interest in my toe, but it's all over now. Nothing to see here. Please move along.
