So, I’ve been upgraded from terrorist wrap to purple mini-club with still swollen fingers. I guess I am supposed to learn lessons in all of this and the biggest lesson I have learned to this point is to never ever ever
get back together take my right hand for granted…..EVER!
Here are a list of things that having a right hand or two hands is beneficial for:
- Anything having to do with bathroom activity. Have you ever tried to shave your left underarm TMI ALERT with your left hand? Take a minute right now to try it if you haven’t…SEE! I might need to go to the emergency room for a blood transfusion I’m so talented at it.
- Cooking!!! I am living on frozen Lean Cuisines and stupid things from boxes that are gross because have you ever tried to chop with one hand, it don’t work!
- School work. I started school this past Monday but my hand would think that we are still on hiatus. I spend three times the amount of time typing and doing homework than I did pre-broken arm. I even had to hire (NOT) my mother to type my answers in a timed quiz or else I would have finished one answer in the 20 minute time limit.
- Working. I work on a computer all day long for my day job. I am thankful for patient co-workers who don’t mind that I take 1500 times longer to do one report than I used to. It is very frustrating to all involved I am sure.
So, if those were the lessons I was supposed to learn, that having a right hand/two hands is a blessing in disguise, 2 1/2 weeks in I surrender. Universe you win!
Forgtive my puffy fingers. I think I will have sausage fingers for the remainder of my lifetime.
The stuff that emergency rooms are made for.
I haven’t dared venture very far out into the snow. I am still afraid I will fall and break my other wrist and that ain’t going to be good for no one! And the below zero temps all this week will only cement my fear even more.
I hope you all are doing okay. Watch out for black ice and/or stay away from me unless you want to catch the clutz disease… For serious!
QUESTION OF THE DAY: Do you enjoy winter? What’s your favorite winter activity?
p.s. A lot have asked me how I managed to break my wrist. I wanted to have a cool story about how I was trying to save an orphan child from being hit by and avalanche, but instead it’s the lamest possible story. I was scraping the windows on my car the day after Christmas when all of a sudden I found myself on my butt on the ice. Grace under idiocy!
