IO: I broke my foot!

So here's the story. It's almost hilarious, looking back on it.

Yesterday, I went out with my best friend Nick and our friend Matt to go job hunting. We were outside Panera Bread where about five of our friends were working, and we were about to leave. Matt was driving, and Nick got in the front seat. I went to get in the back, and I had one foot it. As I was about to swing my other leg into the seat, Matt drove forward and rolled over half of my foot. So I started screaming "Reverse! Reverse! Stop! You ran over my foot!!!" At that moment, I didn't feel anything, but as Matt backed up and he and Nick darted to my side of the car, I looked at my foot and WHOOSH all the pain came! Hahaha


But yeah, they did a good job in calming me down (I was basically crying and nearly going into shock), calling my parents, and controlling the bleeding. So I broke it in three places: two hairline fractures and a complete fracture of my big toe. A great way to start off the summer, huh?


Haha anyway, just wanted to post this for some odd reason. Any advice on the situation at all would be wonderful.

Yeah it was the back door on the left hand side. He was driving a smaller car...a Buick or something. And yeah, it was my left foot.


Oh, and I have a blue cast, if you're curious about that too. Hahaha

Hahaha he was soooo scared that my dad was going to sue him. But we're not. His car insurance might have to cover the costs though.


Oh, and I wrote "Walk On" on my cast. (I know. No U2 in IO but oh wells.) I thought it was appropriate.

Considering the circumstances, I would think "Roll on" might be acceptable....

Good luck.

It's never appropriate.

I am sorry about your foot though. Owwwwwwww!

Haha thanks! It kind of ticks me off that the guy who ran over my foot hasn't called me once since the day it happened or anything, but eh he's a loser.

You sound like my dad hahaha





Okay wow. I definitely got a little bit of water in my cast today when I was showering. (No, I'm not that stupid. I had a bag over it. ) Ugh I really hope this dries and doesn't become a huge problem.
