Could it be a Trend?

One thing I forgot to mention yesterday - on Saturday afternoon I banged my elbow on the edge of the sink in the bathroom.

At first my brain processed this as “ouch, funny bone” and I hollered “ouch!” as one does, but almost instantly the brain continued to churn as "ordinary funny bone pain" started to escalate into a numbing torrent of fury that froze my entire arm and made my skin break out in a cold sweat as I whimpered helplessly. Barb came running, and got a cold compress for my face and ice for the elbow, and gradually I was able to move again. I sat a little dazed for a while with my elbow on ice until some amount of normalcy was restored, then I examined the elbow to find a gash and a little swelling. It still hurt to bend, so I kept with the ice for a while; after a half-hour or so we went out, but I was babying it for the rest of the day.

It hurt to move too much, but seemed to be recovering. I still felt a little “off” for most of the day.

Now it’s still sore, but naturally it’s barely noticeable. With this level of pain and inconvenience, I fully expected it to be hideously black-and-blue and swollen to twice its size. Really hurts deep inside, though.

Stupid bodies.

This t-shirt makes me think of evil_little_dog.

My wife says I don't need any more t-shirts. *sob*

Owie! You deserve to have at least a big bruise to show for it! Maybe a scar from the gash?

The scab came off and it really, really stings... :)

It does hurt deep inside - Barb says the bone is probably bruised. Oh, well.

*nods* Bone bruises are very painful.

Could you have chipped the bone? No matter what, sending much sympathy your way.
Oct. 6th, 2015 03:26 am (UTC)
Don't think so, but possibly bruised it, at least. It's owie down deep inside, so that's the most likely. It hurts when I poke it.

EEEEE. Love that t-shirt! LOVE.

Sorry about your funny bone, though. That's kind of ewwwwwww.
Oct. 6th, 2015 03:27 am (UTC)
I love it, too! Eeeeeeee!

Thanks. I'll somehow survive...!
Oct. 6th, 2015 11:03 am (UTC)
I have too many t-shirts myself but EEEEEEE.

you probably caught it right on the nerve. Ouch. Hope it feels better soon.

I love that t-shirt. retire an old one and get a new one?
Oct. 7th, 2015 04:07 am (UTC)
Maybe. It's hard to retire 'em (I have set aside many for a potential t-shirt quilt, when I can afford the interfacing...).
Oct. 7th, 2015 04:35 am (UTC)
hahaha so do I. And oh, whenever I actually learn HOW to quilt
Oct. 8th, 2015 04:21 am (UTC)
t-shirt quilts are not the fancy, labor-intensive, hard ones -- just patchwork on a backing. I don't even have a frame, I was just going to hand-stitch it. But you DO need interfacing, because t-shirt fabric is stretchy.
Oct. 8th, 2015 04:25 am (UTC)
yes I was warned about that. I will have to hand stitch unless I take mom's machine and I'm not sure the hand can DO that much sewing any more
Oct. 8th, 2015 04:54 am (UTC)
Sewing machines and I aren't on speaking terms, generally....

Oct. 8th, 2015 02:49 pm (UTC)
I often manage to sew my fingers
Oct. 9th, 2015 03:47 am (UTC)
I get snarls and knots and huge amounts of thread tangled up in the bobbin area, or the tension snaps the thread, etc., etc. I've just never been able to make the damned things work.
Oct. 9th, 2015 04:06 am (UTC)
that too. I love it when I suddenly have 35 threads coming off the bobbin and it sucks it all down into the bobbin hole and you have to cut it free without cutting the material
Oct. 6th, 2015 04:46 am (UTC)
We got that shirt! Or, more accurately, we each got one of that shirt... but you know what I mean. And we really don't need anymore t-shirts either, but I just couldn't resist. I'm a total sucker for Karen Hallion's designs (she did that one with Brandon Kenney), we've even got some prints of her art!

It does sound like you may have a bone bruise... and those can take as long as breaks to heal up completely (as I found out when I whacked the heck out of my knee back in April). Hope it gets feeling better soon!
Oct. 7th, 2015 04:09 am (UTC)
Yeah, I love her designs, too (why oh why are there so many daily t-shirt places? AND WHY am I subscribed to them all?).

It probably is a bone bruise. I just have to be careful about brushing/bumping it on anything (or leaning on it, which I'm wont to do).

I was really happy I got to meet her earlier this year. She was at Star Wars Celebration and then had a Meet Up at Disneyland the day after the convention. I got her to sign one of my t-shirts and got to chat with her and her son for a bit... plus a few other fans of her work.

A lot of the one-a-day sites have started doing multiples-a-day... and I've noticed, weirdly, that I'm finding fewer shirts I'm interested in getting. Probably a good thing, but you'd think that a larger variety would mean MORE things I'd want to buy. Of course, then I think back to when I was a teenager and the only place I could get fannish type t-shirts was at conventions, and the choices were always horribly limited.
Oct. 8th, 2015 04:03 am (UTC)
That is true. There HAVE been fewer ones lately - I thought maybe I was reaching critical (although it's been heavy on the mashups lately, and many of them just don't hit me right -- this Stitch one did, and I have gotten one of the Stitch/Toothless mashups, because those two BELONG together...)

Oct. 6th, 2015 05:40 am (UTC)
Wait. It'll turn ugly after too much time has passed to complain about it. Deep bruises always seem to do that. :/
Oct. 7th, 2015 04:09 am (UTC)
We shall see....

Oct. 6th, 2015 10:39 am (UTC)
Oh dear! Hope the pain's completely gone today.
Oct. 7th, 2015 04:06 am (UTC)
Not COMPLETELY, but it's somewhat better. I just have to remember not to bump it or lean on it...!

Oct. 6th, 2015 11:57 pm (UTC)
Yeowch! Even ordinary funny bone pain is bad enough.
Oct. 7th, 2015 12:02 am (UTC)
P.S. -- This t-shirt reminds me of an icon of a flistee -- can't remember who -- which has that History Channel Aliens guy saying, "I don't know, therefore aliens."

Hee hee hee! :)
