Not the boot from Beer Fest but the one I received from my doctor a couple of weeks back, has placed a huge damper on my home brewing.
I hurt my foot while playing basketball. I didn’t roll but had some bad pain in both of my calf muscles. I woke up the next morning with a sore (a bit worse than that but painful seems too harsh) right foot. The arch, ball, ankle, just about the whole thing hurt. I limped to work and home. The following morning I woke up and had pain. Enough pain that I couldn’t walk on the foot. To the doctor.
I am entering my third week with the boot. The foot has slightly recovered. When I walk around without the boot, which is very limited, I can’t go fast, far or for long without good old pain creeping in to remind me that I am old and too fat to play basketball anymore.
Yeah, don’t cry for me. I will live but my home brewing has gone south. I can’t stand long enough to brew a batch. I am hoping to be back up and around in a few weeks. I have yeast wasting away that wants to have a smile put on its’ face while sinking into some sugary wort. Enjoy!
