Hey, it's National Blog Posting Month!

It's NaBloPoMo, and it's a fine time of year to break my hand. I thought I had a broken finger, but this morning I took a look at the discharge form the Urgent Care doctor sent home with me, and it definitely says "hand fracture." Specifically, it's a "boxer's fracture," which sounds angry and dynamic; sadly, I did it not by punching a wall, but when a lightweight piece of metal scaffolding Sean and I were setting up slammed down onto the side of my hand. How mundane.

All of this is to say, my posts for the first few days may be brief, as I am typing this almost entirely with my right index finger. My hunt-and-peck method is pretty dependent on three of the fingers on my left hand, and they're out of commission for the foreseeable future. I hope to be visiting an orthopedist sometime this week, and my posting should pick up speed after that.

(That, by the way, is not my hand in the x-ray, so don't go holding it up to the light looking for the break. In case you're interested, my fracture is in the fifth metacarpal -- my poor little pinkie. When I have more energy, maybe I'll tell you how the doctor had to manipulate the displacement back into alignment.)

Ouch! You can always claim you did it doing something incredibly tough and dangerous, though. When I broke my toe two months ago doing something incredibly unexciting, the x-ray tech told me I should say I was heli-skiing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. (not).

It has been approved for consumption by the FDA, and one should not worry whether they will experience these effects with such a low percentage.
