In 2009, I was staying with a friend of mine in Clinton, Iowa. I was walking down a flight of stairs and for reasons I'll never understand, my 2nd toe from the big one on my left foot got rolled underneath my foot and I stepped on it. The pain was excruciating. I didn't go to a doctor, but I'm certain it broke. How am I certain? I heard it. Sounded like one of those snappers you throw.
