During the kick return, I hunted down the receiver and he started running at me full speed…I was determined to take his flag. As he approached me, I reached out my right hand to take his flag, but instead of grabbing the flag, I got a hand full of his t-shirt.

It was a funky play. Nothing cool about it. I was basically taking a relay throw back from the outfield. The throw bounced just short of me and came up and drilled me in the right middle finger. I picked up the ball, threw it back in, and then looked at my hand where I found blood everywhere (my friends told me there was a trail of blood leading to the bathroom). I thought the extent of the injury was that the nail on my finger got pushed up by the ball. So at worst, I figured, I would just be losing the nail. But the wound never stopped bleeding. So I went to the doctor this morning and the found that the reason the nail on the finger was being pushed up was that a bone in my finger broke and was forcing the nail up.
2 of my kids got violent with each other this evening as I looked on (although I couldn’t determine who actually started).

I broke my finger… running on a treadmill
I was running on the treadmill and working up a pretty good sweat. It was early a.m., and there was no one else there, so I decided to take off my t-shirt (had on a bra and jog bra underneath). All well and good, but I knew there was a wall of mirrors directly behind me, and I wondered what I looked like – actually wondered if some of that “back fat” was actually going away according to plan.
First, I looked over my shoulder, then turned just a little bit more, lost my footing, lost my balance, and ended up flying off the back of the treadmill – just like some idiot you’d see in a movie or something! All in the name of vanity.
