I'm tired of scratching myself

with a hanger that is. I broke my ankle last week and I'm sporting a cast right now. A nice cute black one. I have never had the urge to scratch my foot so much then I have within the past few days! Only four more weeks.

That does stink. Not to much longer though.

I know how you feel, I broke mine last year and had surgery and was out for almost 2 months.

I was under 'house arrest' for two months when I stepped on a broken bottle my dog knocked over. 30 stiches on the inside of my foot and 35 on the outside. She also broke my finger going after a deer.

That's why I'm going deer hunting this year.

I'm glad to hear your cast is still on. Last time we talked you had the saw out.

Well... I hate to be "that person" but the medic in me says "You shouldn't scratch it with a wire hanger". You could create a nice little lesion in there that could get infected then gangrenous, then your leg will fall off while you're trying to take a leak and then you'll fall over and hit your head on the toilet and die. And NO ONE wants to be found dead in the loo with their pants around their ankles and their wang out for the authorities to see and photograph as part of the investigation. Then those pics wind up on the intrawebz and just because some one didn't set the parental controls on their laptop some 3rd grader will see them.

Think of the kids AD!!! Think of the kids!!!

Cain, that's interesting: we were talking about the EXACT same topic at work just the other day.

Not me. The blown pupils are a little like me. The ketchup spilled down the front is very much like me. But my chest? not so hairy. And my arms have a bit less definition.

And, to move away from this , may I also add my hopes for a speedy recovery.

This is starting to reminding me of a thread we had here back in the day involving a swallowed pull tab... Boy-o-boy, that particular situation turned out bad.

First the poor dude was like this:


And then this happened:


Please AD, think of the kids!!!

You're right Cain. Who else is going to clean up that mess besides the kids.
