My new accessory...

So here is my newest accessory. I've had it for about a week and while I've gotten fairly used to it in that time it's still very, very frustrating. Here is my list of annoyances so far:

1) It's black. Since I am not only white, but albino-ish white this proves to be very conspicuous.

2) It's long. I broke my hand, not my femur or tibia or whatever that long arm bone is. I really don't see the necessity in the to-the-elbow cast.

3) Gallon size ziplock baggy. Need I say more? This is my constant companion while showering, going to the lake, doing my synchronized diving, etc. (okay so I don't really synchronize dive... I've obviously been taking in a little olympics lately and seriously, how cool is that event??)

4) I'm not gonna lie, it's getting a teensy bit stinky. This is probably due to the fact that a) I haven't washed my left arm in a week and b) I spilled a little scotch down inside of it on Thursday when I was fixing my Bossdad a drink at work.

5) I have not one, but two signatures. Yes, signatures. With sharpie. I was very adamantly against this, but you combine a social setting with people I'm not used to, easy access to writing utensils to mark your glass of wine, and consuming a glass too many of said wine and all of a sudden I have people surrounding me pens in hand, and I, for some reason, feel bad saying no. So now I'm broken and tacky.

There is, however, one good element to it. Whenever Matthew is being difficult, I sneak up behind him and knock him with it right on the funny bone. He doesn't seem to think this is very funny, but I do! :) And it makes me feel better. Misery loves company, right? And that's what he gets for telling people the reason for my injury is that I "didn't listen the first time". So much for promising Dr. Jill I wouldn't use it as a weapon!!

Umm, I'm no doctor but I'm pretty sure that your femur is in your leg.... and so is your tibia.
