I have been spending too much time surfing, which is not necessarily a bad thing since I am able to spend my time more productively instead of lazing around and doing nothing. The only drawback is that my feet become swollen after a prolonged period of lower body inactivity. This condition is called oedema. Yes! I am a prime candidate for deep vein thrombosis, too, and I do not even have to fly transatlantic to be afflicted. Wuan has this novel idea to rid the oedema – hang upside down like a bat. If only she can guarantee that my head will not become bloated instead!
