Note to self: buy water shoes

My feet seem to be a magnet for thorns/quills. A little more than a month ago, I stepped on a sea urchin and got a nasty infection from the quills I wasn't able to remove. Now I've got thorns from God knows where. I had to cut away the skin to remove the tiny buggers.

The moral of my very uninteresting story is to wear protective shoes. Don't walk barefoot like me if your foot pads (and I don't mean robbers) aren't tough enough. Can't wait to get to South Africa so I can go water shoe shopping.

The end comes quickly
And so I say goodbye 
I know where I stand

You aren't mine
I'm not yours 
We're on borrowed time

Where I found you
Is where I must let you go
It all comes full circle
