This toon needs some explaining for once. Last Thursday I was lucky enough to inaugurate the outside football season with the Maltese in Luxembourg. Unfortunately 5 minutes into the match a combination of unfortunate events led to an injury of the big toe on the right foot with a consequent swelling of aforesaid toe. Personal podologist (brother André) advised trepanning the nail of said toe to allow blood to exit and avoid throbbing. Lack of courage on my side meant that I opted for the tried and tested cure of wait and the nail will fall off. In the meantime the toe has gone from blue to purple to black under the nail – leading me to observe to Bertu that it looks like Calimero during one of our gmail conversations. Hence the inspiration.
The toe is still black… the nail is still on… the pain is less irritating than a week ago. Cheers to Bertu for seeing the humorous side!
