You must be thinking “Is She Crazy?”
Two is better than one! In what way is one better than two?
One is better than two in every way!!!!!
What am I referring to? Crutches, bitches! (Daniel Angrignon, an old pal from Tenrox would say, “1980 called and wants its expression back.” I have not seen him in a while. Holler!) I live in a time warp right now. My life has more in common with Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy than any modern show. It’s a bit of a hoot. So, by using an expression from the 1980’s. I’m being extremely futuristic.
As you know, my injury has been healing extremely slowly (snail-paced is not even an apt description) and I have been at home for at least 6 weeks. But there is progress! Now, I can walk with one crutch. This is new. It started yesterday. It isn’t graceful. It isn’t pretty. But, it IS less painful and I have ONE WHOLE HAND FREE.
I can hold a book, a snack bar in my hand while I walk. That might seem real simple for you with your crazy mobility but for me, it’s a breakthrough.
Think of how much I can do with ONE WHOLE HAND. It boggles my mind. I am happy. I feel like I’ve accomplished something huge. Like I’ve walked on the moon or some such thing. Being less mobile has been really hard for me and now, I’m a little more mobile.
So, picture this, I stand up on one crutch and wave you goodbye while I walk away.
Happy Tuesday, folks!
