busted up



What is more cliche than a man just turned 40 crashing on a skateboard? I humbly submit that there is nothing more cliche than this predicted eventuality.

Dislocated, but now relocated shoulder with a chip of bone floating around in there. A black eye. A negligible, but well-distributed amount of road rash. 4-6 weeks in a sling.

I don't know if I learned my lesson or not. For now all sports are out. I have no choice but to retreat into the life of the mind.

I saw a kid skateboarding today. Thought of you. He wasn't in a sling.
Get well.

Damn. This means an enforced indoor vacation, I reckon. Want me to write a note to the teacher?

Sorry to hear it but you still write pretty good for a one armed, half blind guy.

You need a wife, dude. Either she'd have stopped this foolishness early or would now be available for caretaking.

You still got your teeth; that's a major plus.
Now nut-up buttercup and let's hit the Friday Art fest.

With you, the life of the mind would be a pretty... interesting... place.

Welcome to middle age. Feel better soon!

That is terrible! Hopefully this at least leads to another manny chapter.
