Gimpy

scan10040.jpgMy mom sent me this picture for those who think that the crippled arm thing is a new trick for me…

  • When I was 5, I broke both my arms jumping off a swing.
  • When I was 14, shown here (shut up your face! Long hair, plaid shirts and giant glasses were cool at the time), I broke one arm playing extreme volleyball (I was trying to impress a girl).
  • When I was 16 I broke the other arm rollerskating.
  • This past winter I destroyed my elbow (6 X-Rays, and an MRI, and I still don’t know what I actually did to it).

Fortunately, the recent injuries have been to my left, and non-dominant, arm. I figure by the time I’m 30 it’s either going to be glowing green from the x-ray radiation, or their just going to cut it off and replace it with one of those bionic arms like Luke Skywalker gets in the Empire Strikes Back…

In for my skin graft on Tuesday. I’ll be sure to let you all know how it goes.

PS: This is the first in a series of embarrassing photos. If you want to see the rest, you’ll have to come to Vertical on the 18th to hear me speak!

  1. wow you look really different. and how do you break both arms jumping off a swing. you are really uncorridnated

  2. I used to rock the flannels and the “butt” hair cut. But I never wore Poindexter glasses. LOL

  3. I guess it does look vaguely butt-like… thanks a lot for pointing that out guys. And YES, it was cool at the time.
    And big glasses were totally hip too…

  4. You are soooooo good looking in this picture! I am sure you had to hold the ladies off! I remember the long hair butt, I seem to remember my husband having one!

  5. Don’t forget about flipping the bike in the gully and smashing your nose to impress RD in grade 5 and flying over the handle bars and smashing your teeth and chin on the day of your Grade 8 Grad.
