    I am the luckiest...

    Just kidding, I'm not. I forgot how to walk like a normal person this morning and tripped down ONE stair, and sprained my ankle hardcore. I just got back from the ER and they tell me I'll make it. However, I still have to move all of my crap into my new apartment this weekend. FUN TIMES! I was looking forward to riding around the city, too.

    Share your misery! Are you a klutz? Injuries happen at the most inopportunistic time? MAKE ME FEEL BETTER! (or come move my **** for me)

    I'm a huge klutz. I have more scrapes and scars on my body than anyone I know. Well, not really, but I do tend to get roughed up a lot. I finally got rid of a HUGE bruise that was on my leg from a ski fall. Oh well, I don't mind. I'm not afraid to play hard.

    Sorry, I am an insensitive jerk! Hope you don't die and all that stuff and that some totally hawt guy shows up to help you move in and turns out he is a millionaire philanthropist interior decorator poet massage artist cyclist.

    After he TOTALLY makesover your apartment, he massage your ankle back to health while showering you with poetry. Afterwards, the two of you go for a week long bike tour of all the burroughs of Metropolis, all the while enjoying fine food and spirits at the poshest venues that the Big Apple has to offer.

    BTW, the tickets are the Dallas Mavericks vs Milwaukee Bucks, not the Dallas Stars, so I am totally unlucky, as I really do not care for basketball all that much. If they played it on ice, and fought alot then I would like basketball more.

    Hey, 'least it was just a sprain.

    Moving out of a house this past summer, we had a bunch of furniture to throw away, but some of the shelf units were too big for the city to take, so we had to break 'em down. Out came the sledgehammer. Worked pretty nicely until the handle slipped in my sweaty hands, and the hammer went straight to my big toe. Severe blood loss, three shattered bones, hospital visit, 58 stitches. And the next day I had to finish moving furniture to the new house. Thank god for percocet.

    <Note to self: beware of stairs>

    As far as silly injuries go, a few months ago I was helping someone move out of their house. I was working on disassembling one of those plastic shelving units in the garage. One of the posts was stuck in the shelf, so I yanked on it hard. All of a sudden it came lose and jammed me in the lip. It took about 2 minutes for my lip to swell up, and it bled for a lot longer. I felt lucky I didn't damage a tooth.

    Anyway, I felt quite stupid with that self-induced injury.

    I've never seen a more accurate description of me. What time should I be there to move stuff?

    Please tell me that you are not the proverbial "guy that could screw up an anvil"?

    Either I'm a klutz or my right hand just doesn't like the rest of my body. In my 40+ years I've been to the ER at least a couple dozen times for stitches or x-rays. Usually caused by the box knife, hammer, power saw, drill, etc. that was controlled by my right hand.

    Ever considered the possibility that you may be left handed?

    All I'll say on the subject of being a klutz is that splitting ones skull wide open is the proper from for surfing a cardboard box down a flight of stairs.

    Hey, I like the Dark Arts are much as the next Godless Heathen, but once you start messing with my dodgeball you better watch out, because... well... I'll get mad. I probably won't do anything, but I'll get really mad. And maybe write bad things about you in my diary.

    I'm very impressed with your references there. No worries, I am not in "mergers and acquisitions"... or "murders and executions" for that matter.

    Wait, dodgeball, really??? That's kind of amazing. At least you were doing something moderatly physical. I think it would be fun to start a cripple dodgeball tourny.

    Phew. Good think I'm alsonot a prostitue, can't be too careful.

    I think everyone from BF in the metro nyc (or anywhere, for that matter!) area should come move my **** into my new place for me. I can offer free beers, and invitations to the fancy dinner party my roommate and I are throwing in a few weeks.

    Considering I'm on the young-end of the participants, after the first week's worth of injuries it's pretty much a cripple dodge ball league.
