    I broke my foot

    I got over the knee surgery the end of March great, been playing golf, and all has been super. Sunday night, my wife left her suitcase in the floor right where I have to walk to go to bed, in the dark, and I tripped over it. Hoped it would get better, but this morning I was screaming just pulling a sock over my foot. Had x-rays and went to the Orthopod and it's broken. I'm claiming that my wife broke it. Anyway, back to hobbling around for a while, this time on an aircast. It's always something.

    Sorry to hear this. Bummer bummer bummer. Bet there were a few bowling words used.

    I've heard of plenty of people tripping over their dog, esp at night.

    Sorry about the bump in the night. My wife would have been laughing her arse off...it's just what she does when I trip or fall.

    There you were just minding your own business, and wham! Your wife just ups and breaks your foot.

    I hope that you two weren't watching 'Misery' recently

    Well, I think the only thing that will stop the pain is a new Dan Wesson or Les Baer!

    Let's just say she was awoken during my mishap by a string of choice words that would have probably made a sailor blush. I'm milking this for all it is worth. I don't get too many chances to legitimately give her a hard time since I'm usually the goofball. It's all in fun though...stuff happens and you've just got to roll with it. I am peeved that I was getting my golf game back in shape and BAM. I'll be starting over again. I think she was sensing my enjoyment of golf and set this trap to squash my fun.

    I have had a run of bad luck, but I've been comforted by some new purchases recently. I still haven't put my new G30 through the paces yet. Just one mag through it. Supposed to have a G23 coming soon too. I think I'm going to have to thin out the heard though...safe is getting crowded.

    I've got a 9 year old daughter and a 2 year old son...I've stepped on more hotwheels cars at night barefooted than I care to think about. That's now why I keep flip flops at my bedside at night.

    Look on the bright side, it wasn't your trigger finger she broke. LOL! Here's to a quick recovery.

    now you must get to the range twice as often--you have to take this opportunity as a 'cripple' to practice new and other techniques to compensate for the bad whatever, silver lining and all that....plus at this lower level, it bears buying more of.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    I did something similar a couple of summers ago- I feel your pain. I was told I'd be down 6-8 weeks, but it ended up being about 4. I hope you get as lucky too.

    The "old suitcase in the floor trick"... thats one of the first things they teach them at wife school to keep us off the golf course. Hope you're back up and around sooner than they think.

    No, no, no... you're thinking about this all wrong. You don't need to thin the herd. You need another safe.
