May 29, 2007
A week ago I tripped on an uneven piece of sidewalk and fell harder and more awkwardly than Iíve ever fallen in my life, including skiing falls. I cracked my right foot against the offending irregularity and then went crashing down in a sort of half spin that left me with a gashed left knee, a throbbingly bruised left hip, a flayed and aching left elbow and, worst of all, a left hand so swollen and bruised I still canít grip with it. Thereís a suspected hairline fracture in there too.

Five days after my birthday. Now I feel old.
