Broken Wrist, Day 1

"Broken wrist" is vague and in this case stands for scaphoid fracture. Forgive the poetic license. It's definitely messed up, though. Just look at all those bones!

Broken Wrist

It's funny really. Last time we had Sunday Streets here in the Mission it was a very chilled out affair, so much so that I set the video of it to a laid back number from 60 years ago.

This time, by contrast, the soundtrack was upbeat and involved a bunch of people converging for an afternoon of playing on the street outside our house. We had foursquare, Frisbee™, juggling, bikes, scooters, bubbles, water balloons and sidewalk chalk. Someone also brought a "caster board" (caster board is to Ripstick™ as inline skates are to Rollerblades™).

I tried it, I fell off, I broke my wrist.

Now I'm in a cast which—although cool in the sense that it's blue and made of fiberglass

—is uncomfortable and totally inconvenient. Day 1 and I've already discovered the amount of planning and awkwardness it involves even to take a shower.

In other news, I was tickled this week by this image:

That brings me back to when I first tried inline skates. I also fell and injured the same arm.

I think, even with heelys shoes, one can also get hurt as bad as that. However, one should wear the necessary protective gear in order to reduce any injury that might befall anyone whenever roll skating.

I had that kind of injury and the pain is unbearable. It was a rainy morning and I was riding my scooter and when I was about to turn the corner I lost the handle on the scooter bars and I was sent flying. I landed on my right arm and broke my wrist.

This must serve as a lesson to us whether you're riding a motorcycle or a district scooters we must always take good care of ourselves and pay attention to what is happening around us especially when we are driving or working using our hands to avoid any injuries in the future.

I experienced that pain as well when I used my skate shoes online Australia few months ago. My knee cap was damaged but luckily I recovered from it quickly so I don’t have to go to a surgeon.

Well, if one is into extreme sport, they should be expecting these kinds of injuries to happen. I was once a rider, and I have my fair share of injuries too but I don't regret it because it's part of that.
