I’ve been kind of accident prone lately… re-dislocating my shoulder before the half-marathon and then falling with my daughter in my arms yesterday. I HATE being injured. Hate it. Hateithateithateithateit. (Well, I mean, who loves it?) I thought about talking about all of the varieties of interesting injuries I’ve suffered from and then my eyes glazed over and a nap seemed WAY more appealing. I think it’s safe to say that you would feel the same way.
But I was thinking of some of the funny things that were said to me during the times I was injured/in recovery and came up with these quotes:
– “Yeah. Not taking antibiotics for that cat-bite would be stupid! It’s much easier to just take a machete and chop your hand off.” (Doctor prescribing me antibiotics)
– “What did you do, bungee jump with the cord around your neck?” (My boss)
– “I totally understand what it must be like to have a baby. I just got a kitten!” (some lady in the Health Food store)
– “Yeah. Mom told me that when you were in the hospital your eye was running, like HALF-WAY DOWN YOUR FACE, and she was too scared to tell you. Anyway we were all saying that you should answer the Trick-or-Treaters this year, because you wouldn’t need a costume!” (my 8 year old brother)
What about you? Any funny injury stories? You know, laughter IS the best medicine….
