I are smrt

I was at the park yesterday with Julian. No matter how old you are, you're never too old to fall off playground equipment.

Fourteen x-rays later, it seems that I did not break either leg or either ankle. I did sprain my left knee (the one I had surgery on a few years ago) and my right ankle. Hooray! I am big boned!

It's going to take up to 6 weeks to heal, and I have to follow up with an orthopedist. More importantly, I need to now go buy a house without stairs. Stairs suck.

*EDIT* I attempted to descend a large piece of equipment where I am not small enough to slide down the slide. So, I tried to go down the ladder...but ended up putting my foot through where a bar should have been and ended up upside down, hanging by my calves and ankle.

It was a literal "thunk", wasn't it?

Pretty much. First came the fall, then the screaming, then the confused Julian, and then a rush of eosinophils to the injury site to cause massive inflammation. All in all, not an experience I recommend. Plus, dammit, I was sober.

At least if you were drunk, you'd have an excuse. Although not for being out with Julian while you were drunk.

Reminds me again of how lucky Jim and I et al. were with our late night drunken rock climbing in Massachusetts.

Yes. That was why I added the "sober" line to my reply.

The universe must have (or had) plans for you. Otherwise, we never would have met, and one day paleontologists would have dug up your fossilized remains out of the quarry bed. But I digress...

Re: Bumbles Bounce.
According to the man in strange clothing who rescued me, if I died before having my son history would be altered.

Apparently, now that I have a son, I'm expendable. I wonder what Richard is destined to do?

I believe Richard is destined to poop again. Other than that, I couldn't begin to guess...

So the future is in the crapper?

Well, that would stink.
