SingleGrrrl fall down go boom

I'm on heavy pain killers so apologies for the silly title and for anything I'm about to write.

This will be brief because I am typing like my pops, which is to say using only my left index finger. For the explanation of why, I will refer you to my dear friend Martini.

And the answer is, yes it is broken. A fractured radial head in my right arm to be precise (I said that to my little sis and she said, "a radiohead?")

And I chipped a bone in my knee. And I have multiple contusions (like the fancy word I learned in the ER?) And all of this when I was SUPPOSED to be staying home!!! Way to go, SG.

I've done a lot of stupid things while drinking but this may win me the Miss Hot Mess of the Universe award. I simply fell down and now I can't even pee without crying out in pain trying to pull down my pants. Stellar.

When I told the doctor I fell he said: From the third floor?

And the guy at the pharmacy told me my real story was weak and that I should make up a better one about how three really big girls jumped me and tried to steal my sweet pumas.

OK, left index finger fading. Must rest.


  1. I can't even begin to imagine how a drunken fall led to this. You must have been wearing really tall shoes. Feel better!

  2. Thanks! I did fall from a great height. I was up there, waving. People said "come down now!" And then I said, "But everything looks perfect from far away ..." Wow, sorry, hydrocodone does funny things to my brain.

  3. wow - I'm sorry for you and Martini. hope you both feel better soon.

  4. oh no...that sucks! I hope you get better soon, at least you'll have the best drunk story to tell for many years to come. see...there is always a bright side!

  5. Yikes! I've never broken anything (knocks on wood) but I can't believe I haven't before w/ all my drunken stupors I get myself into! Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Aww, so sorry! I once broke my wrist as the result of a drunken fall. It's no fun. But, don't worry, you'll heal. Feel better!
