I’m worried my big toe is going to start hurting this morning. So, I’ve put some ointment on it and I’ve wrapped it in a bandage. But that hasn’t helped one bit, because I’m still worried it’s going to start hurting.
I was feeling just fine earlier this morning. Then, for no reason at all, I got to thinking about my big toe. At first, I thought about how good it’s been to me. I mean, my big toe hasn’t hurt in so long I can’t remember when was the last time it was hurting.
No sooner did I think about that, though, than I realized that, logically speaking, it’s long overdue to start hurting. And the more I’ve thought about it this morning, the more convinced I’ve become that it must be going to start hurting today. It’s time for it to start, you see.
So, I’ve taken precautions by putting some anti-bacterial ointment on it — since I don’t have any other kind of ointment — and wrapping it up good in a bandage.
But it hasn’t actually started hurting yet, and so I’ve begun to worry it might never start, and that I’ll be awake all night waiting for it to start. So, what do I do now? Should I put another bandage on it? Would that help?
