In Rome with a Bomb








So I was in Rome when I got myself the BIGGEST, JUICEST Blister in my life.


So painful! I mean it was alright if I didn’t touch it. It was making me limp when I put my socks and shoes on. It was bothering my middle toe because the bloatness was growing into the “personal” space of the middle toe’s!

I knew I had to do something after 3 days of walking with it. The situation deteriorated each day too.

I mustered up all the courage I never thought I had and popped it.

It was an amazingly satisfying feeling to squeeze the “juice” all out. SICK. But damn shiok leh! Surprisingly there was no pain. I used the hotel sewing needle and gently prodded it. And the “juice” oozed out.

Whewww!! I was so glad I let Duckie, my travel partner, convince me to do it! I walked a lot easier the next day and enjoyed my trip better!!


P.s.: This was way back in May 2008
