We all good? Ok.
So guess what I did Sunday? I decided it would be fun to smash my thumb in the car door! Yeah! No, but really...holy crap did that hurt. Admittedly, I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to pain, but I think this would be painful for just about anybody. So this whole ordeal has really made me thankful for my thumbs. Almost everything I do involves my thumb in some way, so of course life is a little more difficult without it. I decided you guys might like a completely useless list of things that are difficult with a smashed thumb. You're welcome!
COMPLETELY USELESS LIST OF THINGS THAT ARE DIFFICULT WITH A SMASHED THUMB
- texting (on a full keypad)
- typing (spacebar in-particular)
- using the bathroom (tmi, i know...but for real)
- buttoning anything (since when do ALL THE THINGS have buttons?!)
- pulling clothes from the bottom of the stack (as I so often love to do)
- turning the page of a book (shut up you crazy digital book readers)
- turning a key (front door, car ignition)
- pulling out a wedgie (i do this way too much)
- tying your shoes
- pulling your hair into a ponytail
- picking up my fat cat
- opening a soda bottle
- UPDATE: making dinner (from CB)
- UPDATE: cutting with a knife (from CB)
- UPDATE: using a lighter (from CB)
What else would be hard with a smashed thumb? If you can think of anything else I could add, let me know and I'll add it and give you credit!
In case you are very concerned about my well-being, fret not. Nurse Paul put a couple of holes in the nail and it is slowing but surely starting to feel better. I'm on the road to recovery!
