Damn Hell

No, no, it's not Damn! Hell!
It's, Damn Hell.

I posted the Gates of Hell a couple of posts back.
It was a place I worked for a very short span of time that is now known as Hell.
Hell, it was known as hell as I was working there.
I spent a life time there one month.

One day I was racing up the stairs... yep, running up the stairs and I congratulated myself because a short time before that I would not have been able to RUN up the stairs at full speed. Anyway I was racing up the stairs and MISSED. I slammed my toe into the stair and  hobbled for a very long time.  There was no time to go to a doctor or antyhng... It was hell after all.

Didn't think too much about it until I started wanting to wear heels.
My poor toe knuckle totally bitches me out.
It will be okay, it will get use to it and accept what I have done to it.  But when I go through these time of waiting for it to understand,  I curse Hell.

And I am happy for Hell too.
While I was working in Hell my dad died.
I quit.  DH supported me and I quit so that I could get my dad's affairs in order before marrying the love of my life.  Had I been at my old job.  Things would have turned out in a different fashion.

Hell freed me to do what needed to be done so that I could move on to the next phase of my life and so for that I am grateful for Hell.  I am less than pleased that my toe knuckle is paying the price.  It will adapt, we all do.


  1. Ow ow ow!!! I hope your toe knuckle heals quickly!

    I think I broke one of my toes once (a little toe). It's never been sticking out at the same angle since that day.

  2. Sweet Hell...nothing hurts worse than those tiny, fragile toes.

  3. Toes do hurt and they are so freaking important. Walking is good!!

    If I didn't feel the need to wear lady's shoes this wouldn't be a problem. I just got tired of 'Man' shoes. I have big feet and 'man' shoes poke out there a mile, while 'lady' shoes there is just the hint of a cute toe because the rest of the foot is jacked up on stilts. ;) But I love them!!

  4. I have a once-broken toe knuckle too!
