On Sprains, Pain and Being Vain

Wow Sam.  Where the hell have you been?

The Blog Broad Sprained Wrist

Nursing a sprained wrist.  I injured myself, falling on to an outstretched hand.  My wrist is swollen and black and blue.  It’s my right hand (I’m right handed) so I’ve been trying to use lefty as much as possible.  PAIN IN THE ASS.  I’ve mostly been laying around feeling sorry for myself.

Crazy old cat lady
I can’t throw with my right hand

I can’t use the hair straightener so my hair is in an awful state.  I’m a bathrobe and 5 cats away from looking like a crazy old cat lady.  When did my hair get so frizzy? and where the fuck did all these grays come from?  Why didn’t I notice before?  Is that the real power of the flat iron?  Masking your hair flaws?  I need it back!

I can’t pick up my dog.  So I’m just following her around petting her from above.  She’s a mini dachshund so she’s very short.  I usually pick her up for kisses and squeezes several times a day to tell her how pretty she is.  Now my dog’s self confidence will plummet and she will be thrust in to a world of doggy depression and self dog loathing.

Jedi Mind trick it


I can’t cook.  So I’m just lightly grazing around the apartment.  Find a corner, eat some nuts.  Eat a bowl of sunflower seeds and forget about that hamburger you’re craving.  Spaghetti is a 2 handed food Sam.  Here are some almonds.  I can’t even open my eggs.  I just keep looking at them in the fridge trying to Jedi mind trick them in to a mushroom omelette.  It’s not working.  I need to try harder. 

Writing is fucking hard challenging.   I’m typing with my left hand and right index finger.  It hurts.  It feels like my fingers aren’t quite attached to my hand, and my wrist feels like it’s separating from the rest of my arm.  I’ve been downing CBD oil for pain like a fallen soldier in the field downs whiskey before amputation.  I think it’s time for more.  I think it needs wine.  Please send wine.

this poor bastard

I can’t tweeze my eyebrows.  Dear Lord I’m turning in to Groucho Marx over here.  Who knew tweezing with your alternate hand would be so difficult?  What if they just keep growing eventually becoming part of my hair line?  How much conditioner will I go through?  How will I style it?  Will I have to join a circus act and rename myself Sam, the dog faced Broad?  Help!

Have I mentioned I’m a lesbian?  I don’t think I need to go too far in to detail to explain how detrimental a bum hand can be to my love life.  Long story short male readers:  My penis is damaged.

I can’t play my video games.  Before anyone rushes to ask me whether I play Call of Duty, I should mention I play silly little games on my IPad.  Needless to say, my restaurant is full of flies with expired dishes and my crops have all rotted.  I have not collected my daily Jeopardy bonus nor can I play World of Tanks Blitz on the laptop.  I have resorted to Netflix as my sole entertainment provider.  I binged on X Files over the weekend (a Scully-a-thon) and I watched things like Death Note and Family Guy.  The best thing I watched this weekend was a new 2 part documentary about former INXS front man Michael Hutchence which was exceptional.


Honorable mentions for things I can’t do right now go to:

Not Being able to pull my pants up with both hands after using the ladies’ room

Unreachable itching 



Holding a hot mug of tea with two hands and reflecting upon the day

Hugging like I mean it




Hand modelling


When was the last time you injured yourself?  What couldn’t you do?  I’d love to hear in Comments.


Live Humbly, Be Charitable, Live Graciously,

  1. I damaged ligaments in my foot in June. I was on crutches for a few days and couldn’t run for a week. I ate my body weight in ice cream and generally felt sorry for myself. I was obsessed with Dana Scully for most of the late 90’s. That is all.

  2. “My penis is damaged” oh my god you just made my day.
    I am so so sorry for the injury it looks AWFUL !!! But that one line. Holy crap it made me laugh.
    My right shoulder is my bum shoulder/atrophy due to the stupid muscle disease. Some days it works. Some days it doesn’t. When it doesn’t. I realize how freaking convenient 2 working arms are!!!!!
    Hoping you are ok
