Flip Flops Don't Work in Breweries

I should really know better. I was dragging around this awkwardly shaped rusty mild steel handrails around the brewery to send them to the scrap dealer and I was wearing my flip flops (i.e. thongs). I always wear flip flops because I don't like wearing socks, and it's part of the liberation I get to experience as a brewer. I get to wear flip flops and walk around my brewery and dress like a bum because I can. Anyway, a sharp edge of this rusty piece of crap came across my foot, causing a good deal of blood loss. Actually, it wasn't that bad, but I'll be wearing shoes from here on out. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to get a tetanus booster shot. I'm not a big fan of shots, but it's better than lockjaw.

I hope this image doesn't show up on a foot fetish website (at least without me getting royalties).

Dang Patrick. Looks like you jinxed yourself from your 10/29 entry when you said, "I'll try to come up with something a bit more entertaining for the next post." No more bodily injuries to make 'entertaining' posts. ;)

That's just what I deserve, Scott. No more interesting posts for me!
