My foot hurts

It was run over by a car.

What most people don't appreciate, I think (including myself), is the amount of friction a tire has. It looks like it's just calmly rolling along, la de da, but really that rubber is thrusting back against the pavement, shoving the vehicle forward.

The ball of my foot is starting to hurt. The top of it was burning immediately--no hair torn off, but small amounts of skin. Actually, several of the joints are starting to hurt, now--nearly an hour later.

Such is life.

This is the third time I've been run over by a vehicle--the second I've had a foot run over. The first time my foot was run over was towards the end of highschool, walking home from school. No damage whatsoever was done.

I must be getting old. :/
