Sorry Internet, this is gross

> There's a big blister over the top of this thing and I think there's some dried up
> blood trapped underneath, which is giving it a beautiful brown glow.

Internet, I cannot explain how much pain I am in after a heinous calf exercise as part of Friday night's boxing class. If I don't wake up tomorrow and feel 1,000 times better I'm not going to be able to go to work. This is RE-DONK.

I was starting to feel the pain set in Saturday evening but this morning I woke up at 6AM, unable to sleep through the pain and starting to panic about how I was going to the bathroom, even though the toilet is probably no more than six feet from my bed.

In an effort to get up and at 'em I boldly rode my bike to coffee with my parents but bike riding doesn't require me to put weight on my calves so it worked out okay until I was sitting at Peet's and started to feel my legs tightening up again.

Plus, I had my third tattoo removal session yesterday and I'm nursing a kick ass collection of blisters and what looks like some blood collecting under the skin.

Basically, I'm a mess.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me wake up tomorrow and be mobile. I hate this. If I am, I'm totally going to the same guy's boxing class to be all OMGWTF DID YOU DO TO ME and also to see if anyone else from that class needed their legs amputated.

And for the record, we're not just talking about normal muscle soreness here. I *like* feeling my muscles shout at me for a few days after a kickass workout -- this is debilitating.

My third time, but first time with blisters and weird discoloration that looks like blood.

Worse though: My calves after a brutal workout at the boxing gym. RE-DONK!

A ride around the block with my nearly-four-year-old nephew just about shaved a year off my life.

I was going for "beachy"... Not BRACHYTHERAPY.

(And I wasn't driving at the time I typed that, I swear.)

Complete, Understandable Sentences

I've noticed that my mother is teaching my nieces and nephew British English. It's definitely not how we'd say it in the US but "Where's Mommy gone?" sounds normal to me because I was raised by a woman who says such things but after watching this video like 10 times, I'm pretty sure it's incorrect English.

(And my mom is probably reading this wondering what the heck she's SUPPOSED to say so Mom, for the record, an American would say "Where did Mommy go?")
