    I thought that when I was hobbling around on crutches it would be due to a moto dirt dart style crash. But no, I get ran over by a big box truck while at work. Totally my fault (like usual) with lack of situational awareness resulting in stepping under wheel going by. Yea, hard to believe. :lol3
    The good news is that multiple fractures in left foot did not require emergency surgery, so I got that going for me. :D I'll find out Monday if I'm in the surgery free zone.
    If anyone wants to find out what kind of physical condition they're in just hobble around on one foot for a while with a couple of pieces of aluminum stuck in your armpits.
    Somebody call me a waambulance. At least it's not June. :clap
    My company has called me twice making sure I'm OK and asking if there is anything they can do. It really is nice to work with such a fine group of people.
    If I can ever get my car back from work I'll get my camera and take some pics, pretty colors of little sausages sticking out of a fat sausage.

    That sucks, I broke my foot last June and had to have surgery. Try to get a knee roller if you can, it makes all the difference in the world in being able to get around, plus all the little kids are real impressed. I had crutches before my surgery and took a digger and fucked my foot up even worse, vicodin plus getting cocky on crutches is not a good combo. :deal

    Well that was silly wasn't it? Hope no surgery is needed and you're back and riding soon.

    Just goes to show it isn't the high risk situation that'll get us. It's the everyday BS that we do to fund the high risk fun.
