Clavicle is a funny word...

but a serious bone. I know this because i broke mine yesterday.

How quickly a pleasant game of kickball turns ugly.

Bases are loaded, i'm on third, so i have to run. It's a short kick, and i lose track of it as i take off down the third base line. Not quite sure what happened next, but i was off-balance and going to fall. Rather than go flat down i tried to roll, and did so badly. I came up off the roll, kept moving forward across home and kept walking off the field.

I had forgotten how much getting hurt hurts. I was drenched in sweat, ears ringing and nauseated.

Long story short -> ER, x-ray, diagnosis, meds, shower, bed.

Off to repeat the last three.

Jeez, we are getting fragile... Seems there's a broken/deflated/distended something or other being posted on here about once a month or so.

Anyway, that sucks, Todd, and i hope you heal quickly, but as broken bones go, (having broken both sides 3 times total) it's a good bone to break once you get the shower routine down.
