We had a long weekend in the UK this past week, so Victor and I went to visit my mother. Harmless, you might think. Well, this is me you're dealing with, so think again. Guess who managed to sprain her finger by reaching into her suitcase, before the plane had even taken off?! Yeah, that would be me. Luckily, my mother got in years of practice from doctoring my dad, so she was there for me with ice packs and Chinese tiger balm. And also white wine and home-made vodka mojitos. And what did Victor contribute?
Mockery, that's what. The bastard man.
Anyway, my finger is more or less healed up now, and shrunk back to normal size. Which is a good thing, since life with a sprained finger - index finger of my right hand, just to make it even more fun - is a series of interesting adventures. Doing your shoelaces? Suddenly an adventure. Going to the bathroom? An even bigger adventure. But now, pretty much the only thing that hurts a little bit is writing with a pen, or working with a tablet - and even that isn't too bad. Victor's said it before and he's saying it again now - I'm like Wolverine. Healing factor, don'cha know.
"Just don't leap out into traffic to test it, hon!" (Actual quote.)
And as you can see, I am doing my best to justify the expensive cargo pants by wearing them again. (And again...) This combo is kind of like revisiting old times because it's got three colours I used to wear all the time a few years ago. Bright red, olive green and black was my uniform, more or less, back in the day. How times have changed, eh?
I should add that while I was taking this last photo, my jacket, scarf and cap almost blew away. That's how strong the wind was! I had to run over and rescue them, before they were lost forever. Just keepin' it real, here...
