Chug-a-chug-a Choo-Choo


Tags: , ,
Weeks ago, I made plans to go up to DC tomorrow to go to an event and hang out with Julia (littlepixiechic). The idea was to drive up tomorrow, spend the night with her, and drive back Friday. The problem is that I currently can't drive my car. My left foot is the one I injured, so if I had an automatic I'd be all set. But since I have a manual, I need my left foot for the clutch, and that just isn't happening. Obviously this required a new plan, which is to take the train up tomorrow and back Friday. It's more expensive than the car would have been, but it means I get to relax and read a book (hopefully with my foot up) for the 3.5 to 4 hours each way rather than having to concentrate on traffic, which would be nice even without the fact that I can't drive my car. This new plan will require that I maneuver around DC on the subway on crutches with stuff needed for overnight in my book bag. Considering I can barely put any weight on my left foot and sometimes I still can't put any weight on it, I can't really move the ankle at all, my ankle is still swollen up to at least twice its normal size (which is considerable improvement from last week) and half the foot is green with a few purple blotches thrown in for variety, this might turn out to be a bad idea.

Since the only other option is to give up and not go see Neil Gaiman discussing the tenth anniversary edition of American Gods tomorrow night, not get a signed copy of said book, and not spend a few hours hanging out with Julia, I'm willing to risk it.
