Stupid ice

Had another fall this week. Yes, on ice. Yes, on the wrist I fractured last year.
Fortunately, this tumble may be no big deal. I experienced some serious pain the first couple hours, and it swelled a bit (on the side of my wrist that was not fractured, thank goodness). Thanks to nurse Linda at the Rocky, a splint and an Ace bandage, and a steady diet of RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), it has responded well. I can actually move my hand back and forth a little without discomfort. Twisting is another matter. My orthopedist's nurse said give it a few days and if it doesn't improve, it's X-Ray time. Every day I'm getting more confident that will not be necessary.
Typing on the laptop keyboard is not comfortable, so my scintillating views on the BCS will have to wait. Stupid ice.

Oh yeah. The old "I fell on the ice and twisted my wrist" story.

Well. OK.

You remember the old joke about a guy coming to work complaining about being very tired. His buddies ask what happened.

"I pulled a muscle this morning"

"Pulling a muscle won't make you tired"

"It will if you pull on it a hundred and fifty times"
