My foot !

Now, follow these instructions carefully and you too can have a gorgeous foot just like this one !

– decide to paint a big old chest of drawers (this is essential or it won’t work)

– put plenty of newspaper down

– fetch appropriate paint and brushes

– use end of spoon for opening tin (the spoon bends to a most artisitc shape. When just too bent, try a fork instead. Or call husband.)

– remove the drawers from the chest

– place first drawer on part of the newspaper

– drop second drawer on foot

– IMPORTANT!  it must be a heavy oak drawer, a small plastic one won’t work

– IMPORTANT !  it needs to land heavily on its edge, landing flat won’t work

– do some yelling, using choice words as appropriate

– ignore third drawer

– allow realization to dawn (usually a slow process) that the chest didn’t need painting anyway

– spend morning in X-ray clinic

– arrange for husband to purchase flowers, champagne, silk underwear and any other items that may ease the pain

Voila !  Easy !
