Podiatric Symbolism

For the past few months, I have had what I thought was a recurrent fungal infection on my right foot. It clears and then returns and I can't seem to get rid of the itch permanently. There are no other symptoms. Just the itch.

Since I don't normally use this format to discuss my medical issues, you may be wondering why I'm bringing this up.

Today, it occurred to me that this is a case of podiatric symbolism. I have an itchy right foot and I can't make the itch go away.

Why do I have an itchy right foot? Because I have itchy feet - feet that are yearning to GO HOME ALREADY.

Sometimes, Gd is so literal.
