GeekBoy is really good at foot massages. You know that good-painful type where one squeezes all the knots from a persons feet.
I discovered this because I needed a foot massage after work today. For some reason I thought it wise to work in heels for close on ten hours.
They weren’t stilettos or anything. I’ve never worked in heels before, but I’m on Orthopaedics now (rotation number three, look at me!) and Fridays are supposed to be our “formal days”. The men all wear bow ties so I figured my dress would look nice with kitten heels.
I also banked on the day being somewhat shorter. I did not consider the possibility of having to round on our near-100 patients alone because the seniors in my team were all caught up in other duties.
Granted, I was fine til about 14h30. After that I was not really fine. I had flats in my bag but I guess I wanted to see how long I could stand it. I once did a 24 hour shift with a doctor who was wearing heels with her scrubs and claimed her feet didn’t hurt at all.
Being fairly short I did enjoy the extra height, but heck… next Friday I’ll just wear a bow tie.
