Last Sunday, it was my turn to cook dinner, and I may or may not
have been completely drunk off my ass. Filled with boredom and boozey confidence,
I looked around the corner to ensure I was alone, and began trying to
juggle the carving knives, and quite predictably, dropped the largest one
into my foot. Still not the problem, it was nothing a few muffled screams
and a tourniquet couldn't solve. Anyway, when dinner was ready, while
taking the rather large casserole dish out the oven, my shoddy bandaging
caught on something, I tripped up and dropped the dish on my -other- foot.
I'm quite certain I broke a few toes, the constant dull, internal throbbing, swelling
at the joints and one toe pointing at a weird angle makes me feel kind of sure of it.
It'd cost me 300 bucks to just see a doctor, like another 400 for an x-ray, 200 for decent
painkillers and if they see my other foot, then it's more for a nurse for stitches
and local anaesthetic, i'd be lucky to leave without looking at a bill over a grand.
So, ATS, what i'm asking, is how do I deal with a broken toe or two without
professional help, and more importantly good lord how do I deal with the constant,
throbbing pain ?
Disclaimer- I don't have any kids so no innocents were exposed to my reckless
behaviour, and I recooked the meal before anyone noticed so no one went hungry,
though please feel free to chime in to tell me what a complete ass I am.
