So I had surgery two Thursdays ago on my left ankle. Though I’m finally off of those damn crutches (armpits rejoice!), I’m still wearing an oh-so-lovely big, black boot to protect my healing wound from the elements. Sadly, the boot has severely limited my pant selection, barring all but those bell-bottomed enough to swallow the girth of my not-so-fashionable fashion accessory. On the upside, my sock collection has, for all intensive purposes, doubled in size.
