You want us to send in jokes, then?




Just kidding. I hope you get better soon.

Go ahead and send jokes. Just don't make them to funny. If I laugh to hard it will hurt more.

So you want some powdered pepper then. If you think laughing is bad, try a sneeze.

heal up quick.

Was there drinking involved in this little spill of yours? FWIW I'm laughing at you not with you.

Oh yeah, a perceived rib injury is indicative of jsharr stealing your soul as well. Be careful. He tried to take mine once but I didn't have a soul to steal so, call me lucky.

Ah........fractured ribs and allergies.Sweet.You haven't lived until you've sneezed,screamed and cried all at once.IBUPROFEN and sleep.Large quantities of both.I broke the same four ribs two years in a row on just about the same day.Motocross in your late forties is a test of just how crazy you really are.

Good luck on the healing thing.

When Adam stayed out very late for a few nights, Eve became upset.

"You're running around with other women," she charged.

"You're being unreasonable," Adam responded. "You're the only woman on earth." The quarrel continued until Adam fell asleep, only to be awakened by someone poking him in the chest. It was Eve.

"What do you think you're doing?" Adam demanded.

"Counting your ribs!"

Thanks for the well wishes and jokes folks. I'll admit, I had a few drinks in me at the time. So did the drunk I was avoiding. It's the price you pay for bar hopping while riding the bike. No big deal, I can deal with the little pain right now.

Rib jokes?

Adam was walking around the Garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked Adam, "What is wrong with you?"

Adam said, "Lord, I don't have anyone to talk to."

God said, "Then I will give you a companion, and she will be called a 'woman'. This person will cook for you and wash your clothes, she will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache, and will freely give 'love' and compassion whenever needed. She will never question your behaviour or the company you keep. She will support you and understand that you have important decisions to make throughout your life and don't have time for nonsense..."

Adam asked God, "What will this woman cost?"

God said, "An arm and a leg..."

Adam said, "What can I get for just a rib?"

Hope you feel better!

The bike is fine. I'm riding her during the G-20 in Pittsburgh this week. They have locked down the parking garage so I'm riding to work starting Weds. I have the pepper spray ready for the protesters if they try to fling their poo and pee at me.

I was thinking about this after we got done with our Couchology planning session last night when you told me about them. I've heard stories of people who broke their ribs not realizing it and went untreated and had worse problems because of it.

heh. When I hit the the trees ... (why does one block the path at the top of a fast steep climb with a hairy left turn - in order to fix their chain? I had a 10' sharp drop if I went straight, would hit another rider if I go left - tries to the right - tried to stop but the trees hit me.)

Knew I took out ribs - have broken the same ones several times before - darn right handlebar. Was in pain but ok that night, tequila helped I think. Next day though I couldn't breathe. Took bus to hospital - that was not fun.

Punctured lung.
