Casualties of Sew
If I hadn't already done enough damage to my wrists and fingers in the last 20 years of my extreme computer use, my marathon sewing has put the final nail in the coffin. Last week, as covered the fifteen self-buttons for my Ceylon, I managed to do something incredibly unpleasant to my thumb. It's wasn't painful. No, it was the opposite. I basically COULDN'T FEEL THE SIDE OF MY THUMB. Now, I'm a bit of a hypochondriac so my initial reaction is that I had a stroke or something. Then I did some research online and concluded that I had carpal tunnel syndrome. Like Fonzie and his magic jukebox hand, I figured that just hitting my thumb enough with my other hand would wake it up. That didn't exactly work.
A-YEEEEEEEE. (Imagine that in a sad and defeated Fonzie voice)
