For those of you who are most delighted when I write about my proneness to falling down and other klutzy acts, this one is for YOU!

So, I slammed my left thumb in my trunk. "How," you might ask, "does one slam their finger in a trunk?" My answer is simply, "I have no idea!!" I am not really sure what exactly happened. All I know is my thumb is currently five shades of purple through-and-through and it hurts a whole lot! Let me correct did hurt, now it is just plain numb. Good times.

I felt the need to blog about it because you people respond more when I do something stupid than when I reflect on life in general. I also wanted to clue you in on an important fact -- our opposable thumbs are CRUCIAL! I did not realize how very much I needed my thumb until I could not use it. Seriously...getting dressed is an ordeal. Fixing my hair, writing (I am VERY left-handed), typing, etc...all very difficult and frustrating. Who knew that activities of daily living could be so difficult without the use of a thumb? I did not...

It has been kind of funny, too. You just have to laugh at yourself as you get dressed in the morning and must scream in pain as you button your shirt. It is funny to hold pencils and pens like a kindergartener and write kind of awkwardly.

That is all I really have for today...just thought I'd make my readers laugh a little!

P.S. The title of this blog came from a "friend." I have these fantastic friends who enjoy my misfortune and give me fun new nicknames because of it. The actual story "Thumbelina" is a remarkable tale about a beautiful little girl. It was one of my favorites as a child. My friend, however, gave me the name because of something other than my "enchanting beauty..."

Yep, this made me laugh. But I'm laughing with you, not at you. :o)
