Bloody marvellous :(

Post by cavmad » Tue Aug 29, 2006 9:28 am

Not only has my BX now thrown it`s hand in (revving it`s nuts off and can`t be stopped until pedal is sorted), I`ve just discovered I`ve broken my finger so can`t fix the bleeding thing (car, not finger!).
Fingers strapped together apparantly for two weeks, won`t that be fun? :evil:

Takes skill to damage a finger - I sliced my ring finger on my left hand (I'm right handed) severing the nerve (which fortunately was repaired) - and as I was working in a food factory (I kept the cardboard store) I was signed off for 5 weeks on full pay - and was able to keep the following week when I wasn't required!

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Strapped up they are, just been to hospital on work`s nurse`s advice. `Complicated fracture` apparantly. I didn`t struggle to break it either, it was at an outdoor adventure playground where adults get involved. I was actually attempting to throw a hefty bloke off the top of a hill and when I managed to chuck him over my shoulders I put my hand back and he landed on it.
I sustained quite a few elbows to various parts of my anatomy (including the worse possible place :shock: ) and came home covered in bruises and with considerably less skin than when I went. Have to say i`d do it all again (not including broken finger) as it was bloody hilarious and I`m pretty certain I didn`t come off worse.

:lol: Excellent, I was trying to think the best way to refer to such a gesture - but that is just perfect! 8)

Best wishes for a fast recovery Cav. ~ale~

The best laid plans of mice and men and all that, things haven`t gone to plan at work :evil:
However, despite struggling to write without a fair bit of pain and inconvenience, my eBay finger is working just fine and to bloody good effect too. Another bargain landed, just the right size to fill the Fiat-less gap outside my garage :wink: :D
I`m also penning another song or two in my spare time (currently about 18 hours per day) :lol:

Hi cavmad sorry to hear about the finger and hope it mends well, it could have been worse a friend went on holiday to New Zealand, first day went for a trip litterally, his wife smashed her ankle, spent a week in hospital ,still in a wheel chair. Even worse landing on the goats horns does not even bare thinking about!!!
Cheers.
