Trolled By My Own Foot

This morning, I awoke to a weird[1], intense pulsing pain my slowly-healing toe.  

  1. Though not as weird as the fact that I’ve awakened by 8 AM without an alarm for several days running. #NightOwlProblems

Obviously, this made me a wee bit angry. 

And then, after about an hour, it just stopped.

Seriously, foot, what the hecking heck? 

I  did awake with my foot tucked under the opposite thigh[2], though. There’s a decent chance that I slept with it in there all four hours that I actually slept night. Maybe that just made it angry?

  1. I entertain a hypothesis that dancers, in general, sleep in positions that suggest we’ve been dropped from a great height. My entirely scientific sample of, like, three ballet people has thus far confirmed said hypothesis. Weaknesses of this ongoing study include a subjective operational definition, poorly developed survey instruments, nonrandom sampling, and the complete lack of anything resembling a proper control group.

  1. Maybe it’s the general (hyper)mobility that makes people sleep in less-than-ergonomic positions? For example, I fold my hands towards my wrists so far when I sleep, that my hands often don’t wake up when I do. I’ve given myself wrist pain a couple of times. :/
