they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

oh, sesamoids

in a foot, there are two odd bones called sesamoids. they are at the base of the big toe on the ball side of the foot. unfortunately, they reside very close to the surface. (see figure above.)

activities such as running or walking on hard surfaces without shoes can cause these bones to be irritated. mine are bothered. good news: nothing is broken, my bones looked "great," according to the podiatrist. but, it still hurts. so, i got extra padding for the bottom of my orthotics, and i will attempt to run tonight. what might set me back, though, is the massive beef and turkey sandwich i consumed from gate's for lunch.
