The middle toe on my left foot is purple. I noticed this while in the shower yesterday morning. I attempted to scrub it away, but the discoloration that I assumed to be dirt did not budge. Then I remembered a sharp pain in that very toe while descending the stairs to the basement the day before. Still can't quite figure out how I managed to injure myself, but it seems that I did. The purplish black discoloration is a bruise! Lisa would appreciate this! We are in some sort of undeclared competition as to who can injure herself in the most unique fashion through pure klutziness. Both of us also have more than our share of run-ins with uncooperative food. Making us the undisputed Queens of stain removal. Pardon me while I don my tiara and haughtily survey my domain of bandaids and dirty laundry. Purple is, after all, the royal color.
