If you scrutinize today's graphic, you'll find a dot on the nail of my left big toe. No, the dot is not evidence that your humble hostess has failed to practice proper hygiene. From what I can tell--and the dot has been there for several weeks--the dot is inside the nail. I've scrubbed and scrubbed. I cannot figure out the dot. I don't remember impacting my toe in any way that would cause a tiny bruise on the nail.
Who the hell gets a dot on their toe nail?
I am not pleased to admit the following: I think the dot is moving along with the growing nail. What if the dot gets to the top and a tiny insect emerges? Or a little worm? Should I go to the hospital? Maybe the Evil Overlord of the entire universe is about to emerge from the tip of my left big toe. Should I call the police? Harry Potter? The suspense is killing me.
Of course, I could just act like nothing's going on and paint the blasted thing.
Who needs reality TV when you've got human drama like this? Kim Kardashian can kiss my ass.
