When you're on a roll...

In a sudden spurt of creative energy I have decided yet again to begin writing...

Well it all started with what I like to call the surfing disaster. By no means am I a surfing legend or anything and this was all made perfectly clear to me 3 weeks ago. While flying down a wave with a velocity faster then usual, I had the wave break over me. Flipping my board into me, pushing me to the ocean bottom, and dragging me through the sand.

When I stood up, the pain kind of shot through my body all at once. A pain I had never felt before. So after a couple of days I went to the Docter to find out I had cracked one of my ribs. He chuckled and said, "Well, there isn't much I can do, but it will be painful for about 8 weeks." Now you may ask what is painful? Everything, it hurts to breath, move, talk, sit, lay down, eat, pretty much do anything.

So a lesson, don't crack your rib it isn't worth it.

Speaking of ribs, Whale's have large ribs, so why not go check out a new blog I'm writing with some friends about Moby Dick, and remember it isn't a book club, just a group of people reading a certain amount of chapters of a book each week and then discussing it...

at least you broke ribs doing something fun. i've been kicked by horses, bucked off horses and been a bouncer. all of which have led to broken ribs. when you get bucked off a horse that kicked you after a long night of bouncing, let me tell you: your entire right side of your rib cage moves independent of your spine and sternum. seriously. fuck that pain.
