Some time ago, I happened to overhear a conversation and I thought that maybe this woman had lost her cookies. But then again, who knows.
I didn't hear the whole conversation, but what I did hear was this:
Apparently, this woman (very attractive I might add, probably 25-27 years of age) was an avid rock/mountain climber. But she was complaining about constantly spraining her ankles and fracturing toes. She said that she was thinking about having both of her feet amputated and prosthetics put on, so as to make her hobby easier without the pain of sprains, bruises, and fractures in her feet.
After that, I couldn't bear to listen any more. I got up and walked away. I couldn't imagine why such an attractive woman would voluntarily choose to mutilate herself like that.
Or is she on to something?
BTW, this took place at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. I was in one of the hot tubs and her and two other ladies were with her in an adjacent one.

She might have been, but neither her nor her friends said anything to indicate that it was a joke. She sounded pretty serious to me.
And here's the kicker: while in the tub, she had one leg held out of the water, kind like a can-can girl, and with her wet finger, she "traced" an outline on each of her wet ankles where the incisions would be made.
How's that for a visual?
A gorgeous lady wearing a skimpy bikini holding one leg out of the water and explaining how she's going to chop her feet off?

I think this story happened in Matt D's mind, while trying to come up with a new topic.
I have never heard of a rock climber complain about fracturing toes, and/or sprained ankles. Also toes and ankle control is probably very important in rock climbing because you grip onto things with your toes, and push yourself high with your ankles.
Also there is no one you could get this type of operation done in the United States!

This twit has obviously never heard of phantom pain. If she thinks that she will get rid of the bothersome pain of sprains, bruises, and fractures in her feet she should see want kind of pain she will have after the amputation, and the chance of her having reoccuring phantom pain. Kind of reminds me of the now famous olive jar in the rectum story from work. but then thatis another story.
