my toe

My left foot little toe is red and warm... All my other toes are normal-colored and kind of coldish...

Does anybody think that this may be a bad sign?

I smell Fluffy coming to comment on this post... Is it something evil, Fluff?

I, too, hear the pitter patter of stuffed cat paws... the sound of a cat throat being cleared of polyester hair.

Fluff?

Well, while we wait...

Tabita--I had the opposite problem for a year or so. Right hand, index finger tip was colder than all the others. There was a lump underneath the surface that I figured was cutting the circulation.

I showed it to my doctor friend and her then doctor boyfriend (manfriend?) and they were underwhelmed. I chalked it up to them being anesthesiologists and not fingertip specialists.

In the end they may have been right. The lump and cold problem disappeared one day. Except once every month or two, that same fingertip will get in a condition where it's colder than the others. But mostly I don't have a problem.

Thanks for sharing that story... :) I'm surprised you've never mentioned it! Well, it makes me feel better.

I think it might be a tumor. They may have to chop it.

I am responding for Tabita, who, while naturalized, may not yet be American enough to know this is the only appropriate response to Todd's comment...

Oh - we use that phrase a lot in our house... ;)

Tab, I have a theory. Back in the "old days," people used to believe that witches had a third "nipple" somewhere on their body. It could be located on any part of the body that was deformed, misshapen, or in some cases, grotesque, but which nevertheless looked like it could serve as a nipple. This third nipple enabled the witch to suckle imps and other demonic creatures on Satan's behalf.

So, what I think is that your hideous, deformed, pulsating pinky toe is the third nipple I always knew you had but never knew where it was. Now I know!!

I knew AnonD would pick up on the obvious Kindergarten Cop reference. I taught that one to Tabita a long time ago. Unfortunately, much of the rest of the world seems to have forgotten Kindergarten Cop.

There are actually two movie references there - Kindergarten Cop is the first part of the sentence, Harry Potter 3 the second (Rebecka picked up on the second).

BTW, Fluff, you really are the brightest stuffed animal that I know.
