So my husband says…

“Your butt looks good in that cast.”


“Your butt, it looks good in that cast.”

I’ve always maintained the following– “My butt isn’t too big, I’m just three inches too short!”  If I was 5’9″ my butt would be perfection.

My cast is, like, gigantor cast.  This is what I get for breaking it, I suppose.  Punished with a 15 lb cast.  However apparently it makes a damn good fashion/butt shaping accessory!

When I put my walking boot over the cast, my left leg is three inches longer than my right so I must live in the cast boot and a high-heeled sandal.  That’s the only way I can walk without resembling the crooked man who walked a crooked mile.

You should try playing German shepherd basketball with a cast on one foot and a three-inch heel on the other.  But I do.  I will say this – it’s hard to get your legs under you with a cast.  You need your legs to shoot well, otherwise it’s all arm.  This totally changes my shot.

Two more weeks… I get to enjoy being very tall for two more weeks!

    lol. Your husband is funny. But hey, at least you’re working that cast, Julia! And wow, has Jake gotten big. I’m not really a dog person, but I love how German shepherds look. Only dog I would consider having.

  2. Amber Skyze says:

    Hey, he finds the positive in the sitution. :) I love Jake…if I didn’t have 3 dogs I’d want a German Shepard just like him. lol

  3. Penelope says:

    Haaaa! That is awesome. (Just be careful with the high heeled sandal…I don’t want you wiping out and getting another cast!).

  4. Casey Wyatt says:

    I agree with Penny! Two casts would be no fun at all! Jake is such a cutie pie!

    I have a pair of sneakers with really thick soles. So…one more day. Then we’ll see what the doc says. It takes muscles to maneuver with a cast!

  6. It does, Anny. This sucker is heavy as lead. Good luck getting yours off!

  7. Two casts would be a disaster, Penny and Casey. I know… trying not to trip in my high heeled sandal!

  8. Amber, my husband is a half-full kinda guy! And Jake is a character. I don’t think I could have more than one of him.

  9. Hi Delilah! I am working this cast. Sometimes he says… “Wear your cast to bed…” Which I think is hilarious. It’s not like I can take it on and off! :P

    Poor thing I hope you heal quickly. I know Jake understands.
    XXOO Kat

  11. I agree, you have a good hubby..I wish you a very speedy recovery…

  12. A cast — so that’s the secret top a shapely butt. Maybe one on each leg?

    Try the backwards underhand toss at the hoop. Doesn’t require bending and you can get pretty good loft. Just be careful not to fall over backwards.

  13. Right, Marie. One on each leg. Can’t throw backwards, I’d tip over. :P But I’m getting pretty good with arm only!

  14. Thanks, Savannah!

  15. He’s a good boy, Kat. I do feel bad about so much time at puppy camp!

  16. Tom Stronach says:

    Nice pink toe nails and a good looking butt, what more could one want….

    Other than tto be out of the cast, just don’t do anything silly to get another one or to keep that one any longer than you need to…


  17. Janna Shay says:

    I had one of those casts and hated it. It’s great that it comes off in 2 weeks. By the way, I like the sandal you’re wearing on the other foot.

  18. Thanks, Janna! Hope I don’t ruin this show before I get to wear the mate!

  19. Right Tom. I don’t intend to. Breaking one cast was enough. The cast guy was all pissy with me. Can’t imagine why…

  20. Mat Nastos says:

    I thought maybe they had put your butt in a cast to fix the crack you have in it…

  21. Mat- ROTFLMAO! You’d like that, huh! More likely to put my head in a cast because I can be described as cracked.

  22. Nina Pierce says:

    UGH! Still scrolling down to find out how you broke the darn thing. I’m sure there’s a story there! Glad you’re mobile at least. Obviously, since you’re still playing shepherd-ball. LOL!

  23. Hi Nina! Still mobile but it’s difficult. Nine more days and counting.
