    So I'm sitting here in the doctor's office, in a small room, waiting to have outpatient laser surgery on the bottom of my foot, yet again, in order to try to remove the plantar warts which are seemingly indestructible. The numbing was unpleasant but not as bad as it used to be. The nurse or technician or whoever she was used a pneumatic gun to pop in a numbing agent and then start of lancing me with many gallons of some other numbing agent. I can't feel my foot now, but that's a good thing. Looking forward to getting this over with.

    Basically, I'm bored and playing on my phone to distract me from staring at the ceiling.

    The smell of crisping flesh did set my appetite going though. Started craving BBQ and steak.

    Great idea! However, I'm finding it hard to walk when I can't feel that appendage. Now I have to use a cane not only because I'm pretentious. ;)

    Try moving around on a gurney with both a femoral nerve block and spinal nerve block or trying to take a piss !!!

    I got an injection in my middle finger of my right hand 2 days ago for trigger finger. The injection was a mixture of depo-medrol and novacaine. I also needed to get my Christmas cards done to get them in the mail on time. Ever try writing when your middle finger feels like a big, heavy log? I feel like I need to send out explanatory and apologetic notes to everyone explaining why their Christmas card looks like it was written by a kindergartner.......

    No thanks. I think I'll stick with what I got. To be honest, I am the healthiest instructor at judo. I'm the only one who doesn't have any knee problems, many of which are basically blown out and reconstructed knees.

    Did you get warts from a dirty girl? If so I'm telling she who has your balls ;-)

    Tell me about it! It's WAY worse in other contact sports. However, judo is known for being rough on knees.
