Betty (Not) On the Rag

Poor Betty. The other day while wearing her trademark summer thongs, she bumped her toe really, really hard. Her doctor predicted the toenail will fall off in not too long, and so she complained to me tonight that “just as it’s about to be summer, my season for wearing flip-flops, I’m going to be missing my toenail, and I like having manicured toenails.”

Oh, sad, sad day.

I said: “Wow, it’s a good thing you’ve never gotten your period at the absolute worst time, eh?”

She stopped complaining pronto. We will buy her pretty band-aids to cover up her lack of big toenail, instead, if it even falls off, which I doubt it will. (Did someone say Drama Queen?)

  1. Just a toenail?? My kids call me the 8 1/2 toe Dad, because I have had one and part of another removed, due to infection (the sort that eats the bone in the toe) I have given up the strappy sandals, flip-flops and all, as I am self-concious about my toes. Please dear, be glad that the toenail will grow back, and you have plenty of years of beautiful pedicures ahead of you.
