The friends were having so much fun!!!
Okay, let's switch our story back to first person now. Let's face it, It happened to me. . . . not to someone else. After we watched Alex Meixner, we went to see a skit.
the skit was over and they started tossing beads into the crowd. Some beads were coming right toward me. I threw my hand into the air to catch the beads and my hand collided with about 8 other people's hands. As soon as I brought my hand down, I looked at my friends and said,
"I just broke my hand."
Since my hand wasn't swelling too bad and it didn't feel like there were broken bones from the outside, we continued our night and watched another band.
The next day I couldn't close my hand around anything so my hubby and I decided to go to the Urgicare.
And here was the result: fractured 5th metacarpal. It's hard to tell on the xray, but it goes all the way up under the neck of the bone.
I cried in the Urgicare when they told me that I wouldn't be able to do housework for 3 months. I'm pretty sure they never had that reaction before!!
For now, I'm just trying to get used to only being able to use one hand.
And "yes", my right hand is my dominant hand. I told someone on Facebook that it was just time for the left side of my body to prove that it's useful for more than just providing aesthetic symmetry.
And "NO!", I didn't even catch the darn beads. My (tall) friend caught some and gave them to me.
When was the last time you broke a bone if you ever have?
