If The Human Body Were Made By A Designer, There'd Be So Many Customer Complaints That They'd Have To Issue A Recall.

You know the story of the Little Mermaid, and how she was given legs to walk around on, but at the cost of feeling with every step as if knives were being shoved into her feet? I'm pretty sure she just had plantar fasciitis.

Yep, mine is back, and that first step out of bed in the morning is a doozy.

Sigh. All my life, I've been kind to my feet. Sure, I walk on them a lot. That's their job. But I've never made them mince around in high heels. I don't cram them into dainty little shoes with pointy toes or make them walk barefoot over pointy rocks. And yet they pay me back with nothing but cruelty.

Come the cyborg revolution, I am so trading them in for robotic feet.


  1. Janice also suffers from plantar f. And I mean suffers. I can only imagine how painful that is. Altho Janice tries to tell me. You know what I mean. She rolls her foot over a frozen bottle of water for a while and it does provide some amount of comfort.

  2. I've been doing that, myself. I'm not sure how much it's helping, though.
