The thing about being Adventurous and Outdoorsy, Zonk, is that you can’t be It twice a year and get away with it. I went river rafting yesterday, for instance. And I had an amazing time falling off the raft and being thrown off the raft and being heaved back onto the raft and paddling like a pro while pretending to be Captain of the boat and everything.
But that was yesterday.
Today, I’m partially paralyzed (for all practical purposes.) My neck is sprained. My legs are sprained. My back is sprained on both sides of my spine. My front is sprained, too, oddly enough, and I wouldn’t even have known it except that it hurts if I try to laugh. My armpits are sore from being hauled into the raft by the scruff of a lifejacket and my legs are sore from just Being. Which is why I’m lying down with my laptop on my stomach and typing this post up. I’m also red as a lobster from the sunburn.
PS: Battered body not withstanding, rafting is Awesome.
