So, what are you doing for Halloween?
I decided to cut one of my toes off for the Spirits.
But I’m sure your thing is pretty cool too.
I’m only half kidding.
Shortly after my last post – around the time of my birthday – I got sick, and then got sicker. My toe swelled up, turned a deep wine red, and started to stink really bad; on top of that I was bed-ridden for about a week and came down with a terrible fever I couldn’t just sleep off like normal.
When we asked my podiatrist about the toe and sent him a pic he insisted I go to the emergency room ASAP, I did, and they proceeded to say, “holy fuck, what is that thing?” and then sawed it off.
That was a couple days ago, and I’ll be recovering in one of New York’s largest trauma centers over Halloween. (By the way, not something I’d recommend if you are at all spiritually sensitive.)
On the plus side, I’ve had some breakthroughs I hope to translate into a book.
And on the negative side I can’t even imagine what all of this will end up costing.
Here’s hoping that book is a bestseller!
Anyway, be well and have a spooctacular time these next couple days.
And maybe when it’s healed a little more I’ll post a pic.
