The braindead morons that live down the road from me let their dog run loose almost constantly. They've had a previous dog hit and killed but it hasn't made them wise up. Their son recently bought a semi-automatic rifle and blasts into the woods at dusk, emptying the magazine. Now they're setting off fireworks at 10:25 on a weekday. Almost all of my neighbors are good people but we have two absolute dumpster fires in the neighborhood who manage to spoil it.

Heh. I can't even fault the kid (although he's over 18 now). The parents are absolute morons. We live along a relatively busy road. Their previous dog roamed the neighborhood almost constantly until it was hit and killed. Before that, several neighbors would call them and tell them their dog was loose again. The typical response was either, "He is?" or "He'll come home when he gets bored."

Fireworks went off at 9, 10:30, and 12 last night. It was especially nice how he waited just long enough in between each round for my dogs to calm down before recommencing and freaking them out all over again.

Mrs Tif was on a conference call earlier today, and asked me to refill her water bottle. I got up and started walking to pick up the bottle, and dragged/smashed my right foot into the corner of our kitchen island. My right pinky toe is now canted, quite uncomfortably, at about a 15° angle out of line from where it should be. Sweet.

My 4 year old did something similar, albeit running at full speed. Split the skin between the pinky toe and ring(?) toe badly. Pediatrician told us to super glue it, but man was it ugly.

Damaging toes sucks. Nothing you can do but sit around and wait for it to heal most of the time.

It's actually noticeable even though I'm wearing socks. I tried taping the pinky toe to the ring toe for stability, but all it did was pull the ring toe out of line instead of realigning the pinky toe. lol

In kind of a shafenfreude bit of funny, Mrs Tif has had bunion surgery delayed indefinitely because of COVID restrictions. So we're both now running around (figuratively, obvi) with janky feet. Woohoo.

I superglued my eyebrow back to my face in college after an unfortunate misunderstanding during a game of puck keep-away. It was possibly the single most painful thing I have ever endured in my life. Your kid is a trooper, robbie.

Kids are so resilient, it's not even funny. Not only did the glue fail, he was running around the next day. I'd be in crutches, maybe a wheelchair.

you might consider one of these:


I've used them when I had broken toes and it made walking SO much better.

I also recommend not kicking the kitchen island.

I have taken into advisement the various bits of advice offered here, and i have landed on "not kicking the kitchen island" as probably the most useful recommendation going forward.
