Double Whammy

I finally got time to post this photo up. I had to use my Canon point and shoot because my Nikon was too far away for me to reach.

Last week I told you I was suffering from a foot injury. Some have suggested tendinitis, the doctor said it was a torn ligament. My dad told me that it’s arthritis that he also used to have when he was my age.

In any case, it hurt a lot.

It was in this state that I went to my department team building last weekend. My foot felt fine during the treasure hunt. It felt good enough when I was tearing round the go-kart circuit living out my Raikonnen dreams.

It started to hurt a bit as we built a raft out of bamboo poles, nylon strings and some plastic barrels. I was worried that my foot will be shark bait as we paddled the aforementioned bamboo raft out at sea.

As we reached shore, I rushed to help carry the raft back to the assembly point and I stepped on a sharp rock. We were racing to beat the other team, and I was totally exhausted from all the paddling. I lost my balance, and stab!

I had to plaster my heel and couldn’t put weight on my heel when I walked, which aggravated my earlier ligamenta-tendinitia-arthritis, which resulted in another round of hobbling about and getting a lot of motherly love from my wonderful wife.

Some of you also asked me how I could injure my foot sitting down. It’s probably due to excessive weight.

I currently weigh around 84kg. Or at least I thought I did. I was at the hospital the other day playing with the electronic scale and I weighed in at 91kg.

I’m too depressed to continue. My foot is fine now. It will be another couple of weeks before it heals completely. But my heart, my heart.

Who wants to join me on a KFC binge?

  1. Heavily preoccupied with other things. Also, I’m – yes – running out of ideas for my blog posts. Any advice?

    Adino: Perhaps you could blog about your experiences studying in the US?

    Or, your posts on physics are always interesting!

  2. Poor foot of yours! Considering reflexology when it heals?
    I am using my KFC voucher for lunch tomorrow – so where you wanna meet?

    Adino: How come you got KFC voucher? But you’re sooo far away, how to meet?
