I'm a big girl now!

I've had the jingle from that diaper commercial in my head all day. Today (despite accidentally spilling boiling water on my hand -- because of my hurt knee -- so that I was icing my hand and knee all day -- crutching was painful -- sometimes I just channel Miss Saigon: "Why, God, whyyyyyyyyyy?") I made an independent foray to the supermarket and back. I will not starve, at least not in the next few days. Groceries are heavy, my hand hurts, and the rain made the sidewalk treacherously crutch-slippery.

Yours in overcoming adversity,

This post's theme biological trick: freezing nerves to prevent them from signalling pain in the brain. It is fabulous.
