Pain Killer

I recently injured my thumb.

I have taken a baseball in the chin, but let me tell you - thumb pain is worse. I was on the verge of passing out! Which apparently is a common reaction to a thumb injury...I wouldn't have believed it before, but I believe that now.

Anyhow, many days later, the thumb was still painful, it was bruised and swollen, and well, it's just not the easiest thing to ice!!

I got to feeling sorry for myself, and I thought, "this is the worst injury possible!"

That is until someone pointed out to me that really the only way to treat this particular injury is by constantly hanging onto a cold beverage.

And by golly, it helped! I am now an advocate of the thumb injury - Best Injury Possible!!
Wait, how did I get home?! What day is it? Why is there a lamp shade on my head?! What? Thumb injury?! Who's got a thumb injury?

Just One T

A friend of mine said, ‘meet us for beers after work, it’s my buddy Mat’s birthday.’

 I said,’You mean, Matt?’

 He said, ‘no Mat. One T. No kidding.’


 He said, ‘True story, his mom named him Matt, but the doctor spelt it wrong and then his mom thought it was kind of cool and unique and so left it.’

 Ok. wait...

 Really? Who is this mom that would name her child after a floor mat?

And I may not get an A+ in spelling, but I can certainly spell Matt, or John, or Jack. And I'd certainly want to see a doctor that could too. Just sayin....
