Basically I gots some nice abrasions all around my ankles that really felt great when the hot water hit 'em this morning. Yeah, I'm wearin the thick socks today, that's for sure.
I liken this to being a kid and going barefoot for the first time in the spring. We had an exceptionally rocky driveway, and running up and down it to get the mail every day started out as a painful trial, but as summer rolled around, you were sprinting over them stones like a champ. In a week or so I'm gonna be just fine, but for now, every chance I get to take the boots off will be a welcome, blessed event.
