I been GOT

Nov 6, 2008 at 5:36 PM
I've been bitten stung or maybe just touched by a stingray or a pufferfish or a sea urchin or something. We don't know what got me. All we know is my legs are HUGE. I have CANKLES! My precious beautiful tiny ankles are destroyed! I have CANKLES!(Temporarily.)

It makes a great conversation piece, like a tattoo, only impermanent:

"Hey did you see the news today about... OH MY GOD. WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED!!"

Im on something to keep my legs under control, and keep it from spreading upward like it was yesterday.

So, who cares about containing the poison to my legs. What ever. I have CANKLES! And puffy feet.

(No seriously, I'm doing OK, I'm getting better. Should be OK by tomorrow. I'm definitely past the worst of it.)


  1. I've been trying to work out what "cankle" means. Does that mean your ankles are swollen to the size of a calf, or to the size of your calves? Anyway, I hope you feel better.

    Exterior viewpoint: calves.
    My viewpoint: Elephant calfs.

    Well you can't really claim that you're not attracting any of the local charm. Some ocean creature wanted a piece of you.

    And "cankles" is a really fun word. I'm going to try to work it into conversation more often.
