Lamest Way To Injure Yourself!!

Postby cruiser on Mon 17/Aug/09 11:55am

being a 'wannabe-cool' young dad i thought I'd participate in my kid's Birthday party at a gymnastics club. Tried impressing myself with a near Crucifix. Nearly pulled it off, but the arms couldn't quite hold my freshly grown winter insulation.
A few flips into the foam pit...looking good, feeling tired... gave up on that idea. Had a pie or 3, some cake then tried the good old back flip on the rings which i can do in my sleep. Got almost all the way over and CRACK! bang goes the elbow! hurt a bit, but being tough I carried on playing around with a weird feeling arm.
A week later I've had 2 ultrasounds, 3 hour surgery with drills and metal pins, lots of drugs,the biggest arm cast ever! sitting at home with my dominant arm rooted til xmas!! Totally tore my bicep off the bone.

apart from only having one spaz hand and months of greasing the wife to help a man out with his needs ;) :blush: (BTW: all offers of assistance considered).
The worst part is being laughed at for the gayest way to end up out of action!! I've reduced men, women and even the kids I coach rugby, to tears of laughter. Why couldn't I have done it while hitting a 40ft gap or backflipping over the house??

If I wasn't on such good drugs like morphine I'd care more but it's all just a big fluffy cloud I'm in right now.

To any other Lame-o's, feel free to share your pain...

I dislocated my shoulder pulling a calendar out of a tube.

I don't think that can be topped!

I thought my ankle was pretty lame but at least I had to be standing up for that!

On 2 weeks leave, building a new deck, stepping out the ranchsliders lunch in hand, its a step down of about 25cm, and there's a nice stainless dog bowl there gleaming in the sun....Im just in socks as I've been wearing boots all morning and Im having lunch. Foot engages with bowl, brain awakes from haze of the roast beef and horseradish, .....


Im falling, PAIN, Ankle PAIN, f'ck stapled ligaments, PAAAAAAAAAAAIIIINNNNNNNNN


Its Sunday afternoon, I'm home alone, outside...cell phone is in the Kitchen, so's the cordless &#&*(@*($.

Try to stand, opps here comes lunch who needed it anyways. 5 mins latter I've moved 10m, on kitchen floor, freezer door open, wine cooler now strapped around foot and trying to find partner on the phone, F^&*%K I lost one of my contacts with lunch.

So its now 5 weeks latter, ligaments pulled away with bone attached and now reattached with more staples, 2 badly stretched tendons, swelling and fluid trapped inside the ankle joint just finally draining out. And the DOG wants a WALK!!!!
