Opposable Thumbs

It's times like this that remind me just how incredible opposable thumbs are. After having missed volleyball for the first three weeks of the season, I finally got back on the court. And then I jammed my right thumb. Three times. The same thumb I jammed last season*. The same thumb I broke 16 years ago**.

I'm always amazed how often the thumb comes into play, such as when I'm typing on my blog. Ouch.


PS--Oh yeah, we played okay, but lost our match.

* Took about 6 weeks before I was a pain free and had any range of motion back. Still have a hard time gripping things. I'm getting old.

** Happened when I made a sweet steal playing intramural basketball. Resulted in a fast break and two points. I got these big pink pills to take, but they forgot to put the "do not mix with alcohol" label on my prescription. First night out drinking, and one beer put me under the table. Good times.
