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 !
