four more pills

February 28, 2011

that’s how much ibuprofen i just took.

why you ask?

because i’ve strained my right shoulder,
and sprained my left index finger.

how you ask?

let’s see.
what actions in my rather sedentary life
could cause such an injury?

knitting?
cooking?
changing the channels too quickly?
shaking it too hard on the dance floor?

no my bitches,
none of those.

i injured myself,
to the point where my finger was literally purple,
spinning yarn.

who would have thought that the combination of not spinning for months, then spinning for twelve hours in a twenty four hour period,
would give one a repetitive stress injury.

    Nothing obsessive there. Very pretty wheel, by the way! I’m taking a spinning class in April. I see a purple finger in my future.

    I too had injured myself spinning once. It’s kind of funny if you think about it :)

    I have an Ashford Traveller, Love my wheel :)

    Who would have thought . . . those of us who have done it, and (oh, the shame) done it more than once. Take care and feel better soon.

    I’ve done it, so I get it. Heal up, and take it slow when you’re better.

    sorry you spin yourself into injury….but look on the bright side.. your killer looks and the fact that you’ve got several more weeks to go before your next man period.
