The risks of salsa

I realize most of you will find this revolting...but I simply couldn't help myself. With all my races lately I've managed to bruise one of my toenails pretty good. Any of those who have experienced a black toenail know it can be pretty painful. Something as simple as putting on a sock exerts enough pressure on the nail to cause a slight wince of pain. Well, now imagine having that same toenail stepped on by some heifer's 3 inch salsa heel!! Here is the result:

To bad there wasn't a little more blood, that would really be sweet. I'm twisted I know, but I just think it's funny to see my french manicured toes in an elegant pair of gold salsa heels covered in blood! This actually happened to my big toe on the opposite foot last Thursday, (sorry, no pics available). That one had more blood, but the nail bed wasn't black underneath like this photo. On that note...enjoy your lunch :)

Woah, Stelle... I fell way behind on your blog over spring break. You turned into a super-poster! So- sorry about your bloody toe, congrats on making the more advanced salsa dance team, more congrats for running a 1/2 marathon, and I also think you look like DJ Tanner in that pic. Ha! Glad to see things are going well!

Stelle, I am happy to help remove that toenail when it's good and ripe. Ask Emily, I am a true friend.

I hope your feet didn't get harmed after tonight's dancing!

Crystelle - will you please add a new post? I keep checking your blog to see if there's anything new and that horrible bloody toenail keeps popping up.
