Three Fold Purpose

Good evening, dear stranger

Today, the thought came to me that I hadn't written for a while.  Actually, the thought has come to me several times in the past month, but every time I think I feel like writing, I discover how wrong I am.  I just don't have any topics I want to write about.  So, this article is going to serve 3 purposes.  If you're curious, please read on.  If you couldn't care less, please click on this link.

It is plainly obvious that you obviously do care.  I do, however, invite you click on link in the introduction AFTER you have read the remainder of this article.  And without further ado, let's move on to the first of my 3 purposes.

In the introduction, I mentioned that I didn't have any topics to write about.  Well, I am now recruiting you as my dear readers to provide suggestions.  All you need to do is email me at suggestions {at} fifafan {dot} ca with your suggestion, and I will give it due consideration.  Please note that I will most likely NOT write about everything that gets suggested, but I promise to at the very least consider it.  I also promise that, IF your suggestion is accepted, I will somehow work your name into the article, thus giving tribute.  That is, after all, the very least I can do for you.  But also be aware that the topic you provide is open to MY interpretation.  Do you think this could be fun?  Be brave, dear reader.  Be brave.

The second purpose is to update you on the state of my toes.  For those of you who read my Alas....Goodbye article, you will recall the event of my toenail removal.  If you haven't read that article yet, maybe you should consider reading it before carrying on with this one.  You can read Alas...Goodbye here.  Carrying on has been close to 2 months since the surgery, and for a while, infection had set in.  My toes were not healing well at all.  I finally went to see my doctor, and he prescribed me some salve to put on the surgery site, which I had to apply twice per day.  Well, lo and behold....the salve worked miracles!!!  Take a look at the picture: 








Can you believe how well it healed!!!  Not that I am happy about it, mind you.  I did NOT want my nails to grow back.  And look what the left one did.  Does this mean I have to go through more surgery?  No, I don't think so.  Why, you ask?  Well, I'm not proud, but I kind of might of told a wee fib.  It wasn't my idea, honest!!!  But I did execute the idea.  So, let me come clean.  Here are the real pictures.

As you can see, dear reader, my toes are healing nicely.  This week I started keeping them unwrapped, but I think I will continue to wrap the left one for a few days yet.  The right one is not needing the bandages.

And that, dear reader, is the latest update on my toes.

I did say that there was a three fold purpose, right?  Well, for the life of me, I cannot remember what I was going to write about.  So, it seems that this article will only serve a two-fold purpose.  And with that, dear reader, I will be leaving this article.  I sincerely hope that you a) enjoy the toe pics and b) email me some suggestions.  Please, help get the creative juices flowing again.

Until next time.....farewell.
