Good Morning Foodies—And I Mean It In the Most Sincere Way!!!!!!!!! I finally made it home last night with fitted boot and all. For those of you who want to know the story of my foot here it is: I stepped out of a cab at the Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale, Saturday morning. The iron gates open at 10:00 a.m. The Great White Shark likes to hit early and fast. Well, the Shopping Gods, had something else in mind, unfortunately. I had not taken 3 steps and noticed I was under some weird tree with little green nuts. The sidewalk was covered with them. My left foot stepped on 3 huddled together (obviously a team effort). It was like my left foot had a roller blade effect going on under my shoe. I started to glide and then my ankle turned in and the ankle bone hit the sidewalk, but bounced back just as quickly. I surely heard Snap, Crackle, Pop! As I regained my composure, I just told myself just walk it off. I tried that for about 30 minutes, then realized foot was starting to swell. I got back to the hotel as quickly as I could. I then spent the rest of the day and night in bed with foot wrapped, iced and elevated. Hubby went and bought a fitted ankle boot for the trip home. Reluctantly, I put it on to go to the airport. I knew it would be a nightmare going through security. I was correct. My choice was to remove the boot or have the Pat Down. As I said, at my age, never refuse a Pat Down. Too bad you can’t select who does the patting. So the agent says to me, “Do you know the standard procedure for a Pat Down?” I said, “Is it the same one you get when you are arrested?” Lesson Learned: The Agents have no sense of humor! They would hate GeauxAskAlice! Anyway, made it through, got home and scheduled to see the doctor this morning. I did tell Hubby, I think I want to wear boot every time I fly. Get sympathy and free Pat Downs! Wish me luck at the doctors.
I have a short menu for you today:
Peanut Butter Sandwiches-if you have extra time and energy—add jelly and cut crusts off bread!
A Shot of Tequila, or more, optional.
Repeat until GeauxAskAlice returns!
That should hold you until I am back on my feet, literally.
Have a great day! Thanks for all your comforting words and support!
P.S. Now that I know the US Government monitors emails, FB, Twitters, cell phone calls, etc., guess I am in big Doo-Doo!
Have a great day!
