I’m out

After I took a spill down some hard stairs and banged up my elbow, I took my sling off and went surfing.

When I sliced my finger, I bandaged it up for a week before seeing a doctor who said I needed stitches.

I finished my soccer game after a bad ankle sprain. Watching my ankle inflate when I took my shoes off only slowed me down for a day.

But today my optometrist found the two words that will keep me in my bed for a few days: retina damage.

I’d add one word of my own, but I’m sure you can all guess which one I’d pick.
