    Teach me to run into the grocery store.

    I was leaving therapy today and decided to run into the store to pick up a few things when suddenly the call of nature struck...rather urgently. I rushed to the back of the store as fast as my large self could push the cart and dashed into the restroom stall and managed to smash my pinky in the door because it wouldnt open quite right. Dang that hurt!

    It started swelling and turning all kind of nice psychedelic colors almost immediately.

    I finished my business (which really wasnt easy onehanded by the way) and wheeled the cart back out and grabbed gauze and tape to the cart and paid and went home.

    Now I have my finger bandaged up with qtips, gauze and tape.

    I need to live in bubble wrap.

    Geez, Janet, are you trying to win the award for most sick? :rofl:

    I'm sorry about your pinky. That has to really hurt.

    I'll be sending you some bubble wrap. :tongue:

    It's called when it rains it pours.

    When I had the pneumonia you wouldn't believe how many times I banged my knees, tripped over nothing, and stubbed my toes! One of the reasons I hate being sick.

    Broken finger hurts, and the pinky.........gonna have to be careful not to bump the darn thing.

    LOL... I would be in trouble if it was THAT finger!

    No, I dont do road rage. I mutter under my breath sometimes but rarely do I get irate. Im just clumsy as all get out with doors for some reason. Especially this bathroom at this store. Second time I have got hurt there.
