Casting call

My arm wasn't healing with use of a soft cast, so I'm now the proud owner of this bad-boy for the next several weeks:


The story of a injured ligament isn't as fun as coming up with some clever line to strangers who ask about the cast.  I've considered changing the story to that one time I was in a super ninja fight, or how I busted it falling off a bar stool.

Anything is better than "I got rear-ended big time by an elderly driver.  In November.  And yes, it still hurts."  Feel free to share an outlandish story idea I can use while out and about this weekend.

"I was doing some ninja stuff, you know, the regular routine. That 104th cement block might have been a little over the top..."

OMG! Just read the story linked to your post, YIKES! That's a really scary crash. Thank goodness you are okay...well except for your arm...and that your little people were not in the car!

...they had to break it to remove part of my bone to donate kids in poor countries that needed reconstruction... way more sympathy than a hurt arm...or go the high five route - broke it backhanding my husband for leaving the seat up again...

hugs!

Yikes..still hurts???

I'd go with the ninja story..and anyone who questions it?? Whack em with the cast!

I usually just say "you should see the other guy" It makes people stop asking nosy questions pretty quickly :)

go with the ninja-most people don't think falling off barstools is cool...thanks for making me smile today!

I feel for you, my left arm is in a cast too! I'm back in a cast for another two weeks; not only is my wrist broken, but I've got a bone chip and it punctured a tendon.

I'm going to say I broke it being a ninja, too.
