Updated list of superpowers I would like to have:
* Ability to achieve higher I.Q. every time I eat bacon
(Smartest. Person. Ever.)
* Ability to convert my own urine into gasoline
(Though I'd need a really long funnel to get it into the tank...)
* Ability to convert tailgaters' gasoline into urine
(Definitely requires secret identity.)
This is because I had to have X-rays done today, and had to wear that lead shield thingy they give you.
I figured if the radiation is going to transform me into a freak, I might as well be a cool freak.
The X-rays were for my feet. All that walking I did when I lost 120 pounds ended up damaging my feet. My left foot is especially bad. So now I have to use a cane to get around. I've been diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, and it's possible there are other problems happening too. The doctor referred me to a specialist this morning, who immediately sent me off to the hospital for X-rays.
They want to find out if it's bone damage, soft tissue damage, or a combination thereof.
The podiatrist gave me a prescription which is four times stronger than the over-the-counter stuff.
Anyway, I'll let you know how it turns out.
In the meantime, you probably shouldn't tailgate me.
