- An elephant stepped on my foot
- March 22nd, 2010
So Ben drove over my foot yesterday. yah.
The weird thing is, I always wondered what it would feel like to have your foot run over.. I have wondered this for years!
This is what it felt like... smooosh-tingle-crunch-hot-cold-burning-ache-weird. yup.
I was putting the pea into her carseat when he turned on the car. It had been left in gear and he didnt notice so it lurched forwards right ontop of my foot! I was not only strapping Mariella in, but was also on the phone with my mom, so she hears this: "AHHHHHHHHGGGGAAAAA, reverse! Ben....reverse the car, it is on my foot" And I have thrown the phone Mariella starts crying cuz I screamed in her face, then Ben starts freaking out because in his mind he sees himself running over Mariella not me! So it has been sitting on my foot for a good 6 seconds.. which by the way, LONG TIME TO HAVE A COUPLE THOUSAND LBS ON YOUR FOOT!! so he backs off of it, jumps out of the car to see if I'm ok, I find the phone, tell mom I'll call back. and limp to the passenger side.
for the whole day my foot burned, crackled, went cold, felt rushing blood to weird areas, and ached.
This morning my ankle is swollen and I am pretty sure I have at least one broken toe.
the weirdest thing is, whenever I would wonder what it was like to get your foot ran over, I would also think, there is no way that could conceivably happen!
yup, this is my life people.
