Get-well-soon kitteh

Sunday 11 November 2012, 4.58am HKT


4.23am local time, 23°C (73°F), becoming breezy and overcast

NO improvement to my back injury. Haven’t slept a wink in four days/nights. Can’t bend or flex on my left side, or else a sharp pain comes on.

A friend of mine gave me this to get well soon—

Kind of looks like me right now

I love it when friends rub it in. Makes it so much more ‘alive.’

Let’s see what my Injury and Illness Scorecard says:—

  1. infantile pulmonary oedema for 2 months when one year old
  2. nasal infection 2 days after coming back on holiday to breathe Hong Kong air when four years old
  3. tip of finger on right hand sliced open by door by some random idiot and stitched back together when aged seven years old
  4. six months in wheelchair from busted kneecaps (both) when 14 years old
  5. got mildly infected with tuberculosis riding the London Underground in 2006
  6. four months in a neck brace after being rammed by a pedestrian at a traffic crossing in Hong Kong in 2007
  7. spent 37 months in crutches from a busted pelvis from being pushed by an office lady during rush hour in 2007
  8. overcame bronchitis caused by humid cold air in Hong Kong in 2011
  9. current (2012) back injury from being rammed by little old lady

All that not from doing my usual dangerous stuff like —

  • motorcycling
  • climbing up and down printing presses
  • telling off investment bankers or corporate lawyers how to do their jobs
  • trying to break up Saturday night pub square-ups (USA: square-offs) between alcohol fuelled-up bozos fighting over some over-imaginative but under-promiscuous fat cosplay hag with no underwear (eeew!)…

I’m dreading what will make my scorecard a Perfect Ten.
