I’m kind of immobile right now.
That’s my left foot. My ankle is broken. Happened yesterday and I don’t know how long I’ll be on the shelf for. This is what, the second or third time I’ve had to withdraw from the 2006 MLB season? They’re better off without me for the time being.
I should also take this time to thank the Civee for taking care of me (and Iron Mike for helping get my car). I drove myself to the hospital, but the Civee has done everything else.
I just hope I don’t get too surly from doing nothing over the next few days.

So, you write this whole thing, but you didn’t tell us how your klutziness caused this particular accident.
If I send you a copy of my signature, can you forge it on you cast?
I can totally draw a mural on that cast…aw yeah.
Star Wars? Wrestling? Vader vs. Hogan…in a cage!
Take it easy on it.
Wow I don’t miss being in a hard cast at all. Do hope you feel better soon.
To tell you how it happened, I could say that I stepped off a treadmill the wrong way, but like I hinted at, I’m clumsy, so it was more of a fall off the treadmill.
It’s not a hard cast- it’s a splint- which I think is just as bad, but you can’t sign (sorry Levy) or draw (sorry Bri) on it. As cool as it would be to walk around with a drawing of Vader vs. Hogan vs. Rivers Cuomo in a fire cage on the splint, it’s probably not going to happen. I’m going to an orthopod on Wednesday- sounds like they’re going to take the splint off then, and then decide whether or not I need surgery (probably not). I just want to be able to do something again.
An orthopod, eh? Sounds like something one might sleep in.
Either that or some bizarre multi-legged creature.
