Watch your step, Mr. Rocky!

July 22, 2010

After recent summer rain storms, Rocky’s feet were “cold and clammy.”  Rocky’s hands are often cold and clammy — especially when his speculations  lose money —  but this was the first time that the symptom affected his feet.

As a fan of the TV series, House, and mindful that early diagnosis is critical to a successful outcome, Rocky visited the website, “WrongDiagnosis.Com”  and diagnosed himself with all of:

1) Pheochromocytoma

2) Sjogren’s Syndrome

3) Alpine Syndrome 

While reading the prognosis and mentally preparing for his imminent demise,   Trophy Wife leaned over Rocky and said, “I’m glad to see that your shoes match your head.”

Rocky replied, “Huh? What do you mean?”

“They both have holes in them,”  said Trophy Wife.

Evidently a ten-penny nailed penetrated completely through the shoe’s sole and left a gaping hole. Instead of a medical mystery, the question became a physics problem:  “Where’s the nail?” Only Adlai Stevenson knows the answer…and he ain’t telling…

[Disclosure: Rocky tried to cover the hole with Duct Tape, because every  problem can be fixed with Duct Tape (including Apollo 13.) However, the Duct Tape was no match for Rocky’s daily walk  from his front door to his car door.  Please also note  that Alpine Syndrome affects tourists who visit low altitude ski resorts and who fast during check-in.  Rocky  always keeps a box of Tic-Tacs in his pocket, so this diagnosis should be eliminated.]

    Hi Rocky , I have a beautiful pair of leather flats, sadly they have the same afliction, I took them to be mended and the local cobbler told me alas, because the top and sole were moulded together , he could not mend them, I have kept them and will take them elsewhere, sometimes a different opinion can change things….I don’t think duct-tape will help my poor soles……..Rocky did you manage to buy yourself a new pair of shoes ?
