Try your hardest not to stand between the ball and the wall, or this could be your** face:
**Unless, of course, you dig that whole pouty Angelina Jolie look... in which case try to make sure your partner hits you square in the kisser so you too can have plump, and more importantly symmetrical, kissable lips ;D
If you're not convinced by now that all I do in Tucson dream up fantastic new ways to hurt myself, read on...
Somehow within the past month or so, I have no idea how but, I broke the 2nd toe on my right foot. It may have been from doing the Ragnar Relay, but I didn't really feel anything at the time of the race... Well I had just kind of ignored it all month, but suddenly I awoke one morning to my toe in excruciating pain! And it looked like this:
Note the boa-constrictor-that-swallowed-a-dog look of my joint protruding out the side of the 2nd toe on my right foot compared to the toe on my left. It was swollen and hurt too much to wear flip flops (however, given my last PSA I think it best I stay away from flip flops for awhile anyway) and I had NO clue what cause the sudden inflammation. I did the best I could to "re-set" it myself and taped it to my other toe to straighten it out.
1. Be alert while playing racquetball
2. Breaking your toe is completely unavoidable
