Keyboard bruise

I discovered a mysterious bruise this week on the side of my left middle finger. It puzzled me. I didn't remember slamming my hand into anything, and none of my other fingers were bruised.

I figured out later that this bruise was self-inflicted by typing control-W, which I do with my left pinky and middle finger. The command closes windows. Apparently I close a lot of windows in my daily use of my computer. Bizarre.

This post's theme pop-health observation: women bruise more easily than men. Just look at my fall earlier this week. Even my womanly subcutaneous fat didn't cushion me adequately.
