My hand is still wrapped, making it difficult to write my thank you notes.
(and difficult to type)
A small set-back.
Have you ever written with the opposite hand? I have been writing left-handed now for over a week, and I'm getting sort of good at it. I've also been eating left-handed, which has staved off my normal gorging! And a doctor friend of mine told me that using your left hand on occasion can stave off dementia as well.
I don't know about you, but I could use that kind of insurance.
It's true that I love The Princess Bride. I am fairly certain that there is a quote in the movie that can be used in pretty much any situation in life. It is also true that I have used every opportunity possible recently to interject that "I am not left-handed." If it wasn't so difficult to type, I'd turn this whole post into a scene from the movie...but alas...
I looked online just now for an image from the movie and discovered this t-shirt which depicts one of the greatest fight-scenes in movie history. (...in my humble, if not misguided, opinion.)
(My apologies to anyone reading this who is anti-PB!)
I am still trying to figure out what I am supposed to be learning from my thumb injury. Perhaps it is that I need to develop skills that I have allowed to go dormant in order to strengthen myself as a whole? You know, work to make strengths out of my weaknesses. Maybe the lesson is to slow down and be careful about what I am doing. Or perhaps I am just supposed to beware of R.O.U.Ses? I don't know.
In other news, I hope you are keeping up with your letter-writing and reading.
