In These Shoes

A week or so ago I crammed my manly size 9s into a size 7 1/2 shoe and went traipsing around the shops in them for hours on end. Surprisingly no blister but I was horrified to discover I had developed a subungual hematoma aka a blackened nail and it's been giving me gyp ever since, there is only one thing for it. "Carmen, fetch the drill"

Suck it!

  1. Maybe nail polish in some festive color until the discoloration dissipates? Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Maybe wear a pair of Crocs next time you go shopping? I have heard they are very comfy.

  3. Have you tried unbending a paper clip... heating up the end of it with cigarette lighter or a gas flame then piercing the nail while the end is still hot?... I know it sounds positively darkage but it works a treat. The hot wire melts the nail and relieves the pressure that is causing all th pain....

    1. I just might try that Princess, thanks, but I will use candle flame instead, because I'm cheap.

  6. One word....Uggs. You wouldn't be having any jip schlepping along in a nice pair of Aussie slippers.
    As I recall, growing up that, along with putting butter on a burn, and rubbing bacon on a wart, was the way to sort out a blackened nail.x

    1. How about a nice pair of Scholls?

      Growing up in the 80s butter was considered a dirty word in our house we had to make do with St Ivel Gold, except at my gran's house she used to spread butter on with a trowel. Did you bury the bacon by the light of a full moon?
