My Foot Hurts
It’s been months now. I’m reasonably certain that is plantar fasciitis. I’ve had it before. Well, I’ve got it again.
The thing is when I have had it before it cleared up much, much faster than this time. In fact, it just doesn’t seem to want to clear up. It will improve for a day or two, then it’s right back to limping again. One step forward, two hobbles back.
I finally called for a doctor’s appointment, which is just a mere 11 days away from this writing. I guess I’ll just have to gimp around until then.
Oh! And it’s possible I have an ingrown toenail. On the same foot!
Of course, well-meaning coworkers have their suggestions. One, knowing I don’t go for this sort of thing, told of a friend or theirs who had tried all kinds of actual medical remedies, none of which worked; but then they tried acupuncture and the pain went away.
And For Those Who Don’t Like Sports We Have Sports
Baseball is over. I miss it so. The Houston Astros beat the Philadelphia Phillies in six games in a fairly entertaining series that featured one game in which all seven runs of the game were scored through home runs by the Phillies in a shutout win.
The Astros followed up by throwing a combined no-hitter win. Crazy.
Speaking of crazy, there is football (American football, not that soccer thing) now and the Minnesota Vikings are winning. They are a scrappy bunch, who have come from behind to win five games as part of a seven game winning streak.
When I recorded the show, the Vikes and their fans were still basking in the glory of their big win over the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo. It was a crazy game. It was another come from behind win and it was seven wins in a row.
The football world was finally coming around to thinking the Vikings were for real. The experts were amazing at how relentless this team had been on their way to an 8-1 record. And Justin Jefferson! Amazing! That catch!
Will it last?
The Vikings will have played two games by the time I record the next show. At least, one of those games wasn’t pretty. We’ll talk more then.
Movie Recommendation: Weird: The Al Yankovic Story
It’s really funny. My wife and I laughed quite a lot and were very entertained by this movie. Lots of fun cameos, including Weird Al himself. Daniel Radcliffe (you know, the guy who played Harry Potter) was very good. And he’s ripped!
And! Everything in the movie is 100% true!
Watch it on the Roku channel.
Another Movie Recommendation: The Posideon Adventure (1972)
One of the better 1970s disaster movies, The Posideon Adventure is worth a watch. Not as good as my favorite of the genre, The Towering Inferno, but pretty good.
But, I couldn’t resist getting a little pedantic about it.
Next week, I think I’ll do a little compare and contrast between this and The Towering Inferno.
