An Ode to the Glass In My Toe

Oh glass, glass in my toe,
We’ve spent many wonderful months together.

You entered my life in March,
And I thought you’d be here forever.

We’ve run the neighborhood,
We’ve run 5ks,
We’ve been cut open,
We’ve had x-rays.

But now, dear glass, you’re gone,
I’ll miss you and for what it’s worth:
It was a great nine months, but alas,
It’s over, now that I’ve given birth…

To the piece of glass in my toe.

So... did you keep it? Did you name it? Does Huyen know about you and the piece of glass?

I got a spike from a sea urchin in my foot when I was at a beach, that kind, you know, we can't talk about, in Yugoslavia. This was 34 years ago. I ended up with a black spot near my big toe. The spot has traveled to my heel.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
