The Sting of Spring

My left hand is seriously messed up.

I somehow must have injured myself, because I’ve got a sharp pain below my thumb when I use my thumb in certain positions or apply pressure to it in any way. Even typing this is causing some discomfort. The pain got much worse this weekend after we went bowling – my suffering meant that Brogan could not celebrate in his usual, boisterous fashion.

Can any of you help me with a diagnosis? I saw a doctor yesterday, but I wasn’t overly impressed. His beard was long and smelled like fried chicken, and he insisted on being paid in brandy. 15 minutes into his examination, he collapsed unconscious right there on the corner of Franklin and Portland in south Minneapolis. Some doctor he was; I can barely even read his handwriting on my prescription!

Nevermind all this. I just did some checking on WebMD, and it turns out that it’s just seasonal allergies.

    I would get that checked out right away, by a real doctor. I think it could be a hand aneurism…

    Franklin and Portland intersect?

    Yes they do, Nikki, and I’d suggest investigating the area by yourself tonight.

    You’re not supposed to bend your thumb backwards until it touches your wrist. At least not until you’ve snuffed enough cocaine to become the living embodiment of Brogan and dress in his brutish style.

    If you want some real medical advice, I hear the guy standing outside HCMC with the sign “Why lie, I need beer” is the top in the city. Hey, he hangs out by a real hospital!

    Peter…clearly this is due to the repeated removing of DVDs/CDs from their cases and putting them in the player combined with using remote controls. Most likely, you will need to have you hand replaced with a hook.
