I was running out of ideas for BEDFAMM, so I broke a couple of fingers so that I'd have a bloggable subject. Tennis wasn't going as well as usual or as well as I like it to go. The first set was lost and we were a bit behind and I wasn't about to give up on any point. There was a sharp volley to my backhand. I turned and reached for a low bounce, but as I ran to my left I caught my left shoe on my right one - or vice versa - and fell heavily on the ring and little finger on my left hand. I also lost a little skin on my knees, but the main damage was to the fingers. I was sure immediately that at least one of them was fractured. That was it for tennis today. I think the shoes were to blame - see their guilty expression below.
My bound up left hand after a trip to urgent care and some X-rays. Two fractured fingers and probably a cast for a while.
Only one more blog this month. I'm going to make it. too.
