Richard was at work a couple weeks ago and he dropped a 55-gallon drum on his foot. He was wearing his steel-toed boots, but the drum missed the steel-toe by less than an inch and slammed down on his foot. After a couple visits to the doctor, they determined that he has 2 or 3 fractures in his foot. I would post pictures, but he's foot is kinda gross. ;) He's been taking it easy at home since it hurts to stand, walk, etc. The foot doctor, who found the fractures, wanted to put Rich in one of those ski-boot casts, but Rich was like, "Man, I've got my rep to think about." The doctor generously allowed him to just have a sandal-looking shoe instead; Rich calls it his "gimp shoe." Rich is doing well; a lot of pain, but he's in pretty good spirits.
