Don't worry. My injury is not debilitating. In fact, I could probably take a shot of whatever they give professional athletes to play hurt, and keep up with my daily routine. It doesn't even hurt, really. I only noticed it by accident.
Whiling away the ticking minutes, waiting at the car salesman's desk during the purchase of Farmer H's new used truck, I noticed a bruise on my hand! Funny how I didn't notice dry skin on my wrist. Seriously! I used lotion a couple hours before. How does this happen? I'm beginning to think that it's WRINKLES I'm seeing, rather than dry skin!
Anyhoo... I don't know the etiology of this injury. It's not like there was a moment when I dropped a concrete block on that hand, and thought, "That's gonna leave a mark!"
I can pretty much rule out this bruise being caused by my Sweet Baboo holding my hand too tightly on the way to the malt shop. I haven't been hooked up to an IV in years. I don't have Genius riding shotgun in T-Hoe any more, randomly grabbing my hand, squeezing as hard as he can, saying, "Does this hurt?" I haven't gotten into a tussle with a frat boy at a casino. I haven't been handcuffed for public urination. So I don't know why I have a bruise.
Don't worry. I never once considered NOT SHARING it with you!
