Check out my sexy size 13 foot! You know what they say about men with big hands and big feet right? Look at my big toe all bruised and a cracked toe nail!

Last week some dumb ass at the gym dropped a 20lb iron weight on my foot by accident and I was crying like a baby for three days. It was amazing that the x-ray results didn't show any broken bone, but it was painful even though it felt better after a gallon of brandy. I was walking around wearing some big ass sneakers looking like a freaken clown because my regular size shoe wouldn't fit in but now everything is normal besides those nagging pains here and there.

I hope your week was better than mine was.

Please don't forget the homeless,

Mad Cabbie.

When I worked at the FBI, I mashed my thumb between a closing delivery elevator door and a metal push cart. People think, "oh it's just a finger or it's just a toe, it can't hurt that much." When you pinch off those blood vessels down there, it throbs like a bitch. Plus, when your nail turns blue and starts to fall off, it messes with your mind. Hang in there, Cabbie!

I feel your pain. Although I have never had anything as heavy as that dropped on my piggies, I am a champion toe stubber. I've even broken a few. It hurts like a bitch.

Hand or foot don't hang it down so the blood flows to it, hurts a helluva lot worse.So sorry Mad and your driving foot too.

Uncle Kieth, Do you still have all your fingers? That had to hurt man!

Thanks Lizzie, nothing I can't handle!

"It hurts like a bitch!" way to go Peggy, I never knew you use words like that and lets keep those toes of yours intact, no more toe stubbing!

Thanks June but I am ok, it was a good excuse for me not to go to work and stare at the wall.

A photo showing a bare MC… It’s almost too much to handle.

Feel better soon.

Yeow! I have to look away. It hurts to even think about it! Would an ice pack do any good? Nothing wrong with a little brandy at a time like this. Hang tough, Cabbie!!!!

Thanks Claire, I take care of my body real good and it's paying off by healing very fast! I will be ok
