Thumb Dislocation and USCM party

9 10 2010

The fortitude of young people amazes me sometimes.  Especially when I have grown accustomed to the whining and crying that is incessantly coming out of my household.  And occasionally, my kids and Sue complain too.  But during my chronic belly-aching fugue, I can still appreciate the ability of others to be tough.  Saw a teenage girl who dislocated her thumb playing powder-puff football.   With her pink eye paint and hair-ribboned, light blonde hair, she didn’t look like the tough type, but she didn’t seem to be too upset that her thumb was pointing the wrong direction.  Her mother was more upset about it than she was.  I offered to numb it up before we put it back in place, but she opted to just bite the bullet.  She did get a bit of cold feet as I sought out her thumb.  She just needed a little conversation.

“Are you thinking about colleges?”
“Yeah.”
“What schools?”
“I don’t know. Something good.”
“I’ve heard Harvard is decent. And there’s always ITT Tech.”
“Maybe.”
“You take the SAT’s this year, right?”
“Yeah.”
“I hated the SAT.”
“Yeah.”
“What’s your favorite color?”
“Ora—–”

I pulled and placed the thumb back into place. She closed her eyes, but didn’t make a noise or even flinch.

“Orange is a good color.”
“Is it back in?”
“Yeah.”

Claire set up shop at the cyclocross race today. Passed out coupons for FREE socks with a $40 purchase. Seems to have gone over well.

We delivered the shirts for the US Cycling Monument yesterday. They turned out smashing, as Jon would say (he’s English). They are having a fundraising event on the 22nd at the Velodrome. Food and drinks and track racing. The shirts will be available for purchase there. Did I mention that they look smashing?

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it
was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

BLACKSHOT PREMIUM HACK

A complete directory listing of Massive Multiplayer Online Shooter
games in alphabetical order. This is one of the few
MMO mech games that are available on the market and happens to
be free-to-play. In all of the straight sex tape scandals that have spilled out of Hollywood with the frequency
of comic book movies, has anyone ever gotten riled up about
safe sex practices.
