Truths

I've found out some things recently. They may not be all that enlightening or earth-shattering, but they are what they are.

1. If you're wearing an air cast/boot thing on your foot in public, random strangers will talk to you.
Whether you want them to or not. Mostly, it's kind of nice. Or maybe this only happens in the South where people are chatty anyway? Regardless, I think people are generally curious (or nosy) about why you're wearing "that thing on your foot." Now I understand why Ted Bundy was so successful at luring women by wearing a fake cast. The corollary may be, for all you single girls out there, if you want to pick up a guy wear a cast and go grocery shopping. You can borrow mine (if you wear size 9/9.5) in a couple of weeks.

Oh, by the way, I can drive it's just a major pain because I have to do a Mr. Roger's changing shoes act in the car. So, I haven't gone that many places because I'm impatient.

2. I'm really liking things with arrows on them right now. I know this is a trend and will be over in about five minutes, but so what. I think it hit me when I saw this black and white arrowhead runner from Nate Berkus at Target the other day and thought a couple of these might look cool going up my stairs (the ones I recently fell down . . . see, it all comes back to my toe/foot right now).
 Here are some other arrow-related items I've pinned too . . . 

3. I love this cereal. Yum.

That's it for now. Hope your day was enlightened with my random thoughts.

Aw crap! I'm sorry you're injured. As a habitual stair faller (and generally clumsy person), I feel for you.

Here's hoping you're, uh, tripping the light fantastic in no time!

I don't think I've seen that runner at target before. Looks cool, go for it!

I bought almost those exact sconces on ebay... love the arrows.

Hope you can shed the cast pronto!

It's funny that a boot functions for you the same way a cute puppy or baby works for a man. Go figure. It's good to see you're weathering the storm with a sense of humor.

I am cracking up, not because of your injury, but because I broke my leg at Mardi Gras and am in a leg brace! We should hobble around together!

I would KILL for a Trader Joe's in MT...very jealous!!!

I believe you about the cast ice-breakers because I'm the one who started the conversation with the lady at Joann's about the halo she was wearing. I don't think the arrow thing will be over in 5 minutes - if you and Nate like it, I'm good with it!

Guilty! I always ask people...what happened to you? Now I am wondering if I bothered them. Oh well. I didn't see that NB runner the last time I was at Target.

Sorry I missed this! Falling down stairs is a sign that you are thinking about design too much...probably not but sounds like a good reason:)

Just had a thought....maybe you should bedazzle that sucker!
