Went to the podiatrist for (just) a consultation today, or so I thought. Turns out, I ended up with minor surgery:
Since I did not anticipate any cutting, I did not wear appropriate shoes. Normally I wouldn't mind hobbling barefoot out to my car, except that it was raining and the parking lot was full of puddles. Hence the ubersexy plastic bag over my foot. I'll spare you the bag-less photo, 'cause there's iodine and blood all over the neighboring toes, and plaster left from the molds they cast for my new footbeds.
I could possibly be cooler, but it would be hard. ;)
