I have a feeling I’m going to be in a lot of pain tomorrow. I completely wiped out tonight at our curling game. Nelson threw a fast rock, looking to take out 5 of our opponents rocks, and we were sweeping for line. Just as I was thinking that running and sweeping this particular rock could possibly lead to a huge wipe out (not specifically by me), my legs went straight up in the air and I landed hard on my arm and butt, but thankfully not my tailbone. I didn’t have much time to think about the best landing, only because I was so focused on keeping my head from hitting the ice, but I did manage to squiggle a little to fall on a butt cheek instead of on the tailbone. I feel tightness in my neck, my shoulder blade, upper back, elbow and of course, my butt. This could potentially make sitting at a desk for 8 hours tomorrow (plus another 3 hours in class) very uncomfortable. Thank goodness for Advil.
Maybe it’s time to invest in a gripper.
