And excellent xmas morning beginning at 7:30 when the cats got me up because they wanted to open their presents. Actually, they wanted to open the can of food and have breakfast. On the way back to bed, in the dark, I stubbed my little toe on the baseboard heater beside the bed. It was rather painful and upon getting into bed I went to rub my poor little toe and felt wetness. So I got back out of bed and walked to the bathroom to look at it in the light. At this point I noticed the TRAIL OF BLOOD I’d left in my wake and the fact that my foot was shiny, red, dripping and making pool. I wrapped some tissue around my foot, which turned a dark red immediately, and then began hyperventilating and vomiting bile into the sink. Apparently, I’m not good with the site of my own blood. Then I began to mop up the trail of blood with tissue creating new trails of blood and gooey crimson footprints back and forth. This went on for sometime until the blood began to clot enough to apply several band-aids. Then we opened stockings.
