Walking wounded

I play ice hockey with a bunch of guys every Tuesday morning. Today I got in the way of a slap shot (inadvertantly, my modus operandi is usually 'get the hell out of the way'). I took the shot off the inside of my thigh, where there is zero protection. I'm finding the bruise and associated swelling quite fascinating. You can actually see the track down the middle where the puck hit!

you are such a stud! I would so never do anything like that. I used to be the last one standing on my team in dodge ball only because I was such a wimp I never touched the ball, but then I'd be stuck against scary boys and have to purposefully get hit by a softie. I basically fear all sports, contact or not. But good for you to be so active and teach Ant about strong women!

Wow! That must have hurt. I'm so impressed that you play ice hockey. I can only go forward on ice skates!
