So it's been a while and I apologize to the few people that follow my blog. Something happened to me that has never happened before...sort of...
...I broke my left hand.
Actually i fractured my fifth metacarpal (aka the pinky finger bone in my hand, lame visual but you get the idea). Anyways, it happened over a week ago while playing football (at least we won). But i didn't see a doctor till last Wednesday...This is where i shoot myself...I find out i have to get a cast...barf.
I laughed in Mr. Doctors face because at that exact moment my friend/co-worker (who sits 10 feet from me) was in surgery getting 14 pins and plates in her right arm. Obvi way more serious then my tiny little fracture.
I knew as soon as I went back to work all the jokes would start about how I wanted to one-up her, or how between the two of us equaled a full designer, yadda, yadda, yadda. And i was right.
Back at the clinic, (i picked Cleveland clinic sports health cause they're pretty good and it was a sports related injury) Mr. Doctor told me that since it was a clean fracture it should only take 3 weeks to heal, plus some good ol' occupational therapy. Double barf!
So in the mean time i have to type, shower, make/eat lunch, WORK, drive, everything with one hand + 3 fingers. However, i feel super popular with all the signatures i got on my neon pink cast. did i mention it was my first cast...ever.
Another positive, i've had some funny conversations...
Guy in line at Dave's: "man, how'd you hurt it?"
Me: "playing football"
Guy: "oh man, i mean oh man...it looks really bad"
Guy: "you know I'm not even gonna ask"
Me: (thinking: dumbass, you already asked)
But the funniest convo i've had, multiple times:
Random: "are you left handed?"
Me: "Nope, right"
Random: "at least it's not your designing hand"
Me: "i design with my head, my hands are just tools"
I guess when i type out that story it's not as funny. Which you'll come to realize i am a bad teller.
So since this post has taken me most of my lunch hour and some after work time i'm gonna go.
but before i do...What bones have you broken? Funny stories? Good RX drugs for your pain?
PS. i didn't get any drugs, triple barf.
PSS. would anyone like to sign up to be my assistant? or maybe if i fad a monkey follow me around...i'll pay with my grandma's crepe's and cookies!
