What I Did on My Spring Break

16 Mar

“We can’t save those two teeth.  They’re too badly decayed.” Not what I wanted to hear when I had just gone to the dentist for a teeth cleaning.  However, I had been in pain worth Ibuprofen times four.  So I left the office that day minus two molars.  My instructions were to take it easy.  Fortunately I was on spring break from the university where I teach.  It made for an uneventful (my children would say boring) week.  I gathered tax information for the accountant. I read.  I read some wonderful books, and I took my dog for long walks around the neighborhood.  This was a perfect opportunity to break in my hiking boots in preparation for my summer hike in the Dolomites.  I wore them for the rest of the week.  This was my first ever real pair of hiking boots.  Not walking shoes, but hiking boots.  Expensive. Bearing the brand name “Lowa”, handcrafted in Europe.  I wanted the best if I was to be hiking 4 to 6 hours a day.  After all the salesman at REI had warned me that with bad shoes your toenails could turn black and fall off.  Here are my feet sporting MY HIKING BOOTS. Waterproof. With sturdy ankle support. Thick soled to prevent bruising. Best of all…comfortable!
