Bed Making 101

My wife needed to leave for a while early this morning. I told her to go, and I would make the bed. She left, and while I was pulling a fitted sheet over the corner of the mattress, I heard sort of a snapping noise. When I looked down here's what I saw:

OOH looks kind of broke. That's going to hurt a bit. Got to give you credit though, I've been making beds for years and never had a problem and mines a waterbed. Try lifting tons of water to tuck under it. All I manage to break are a few nails. On the bright side, you may never be asked to make the beds again. Wish I knew how to break something cleaning the bathrooms. There's a job I'd love to give to someone better qualified.

It might look that way, but you're both wrong (so far at least). It didn't hurt, and it still doesn't after about 3 hours. I can bend it back into position (no pain), but it won't stay that way. I'm able to type, but with a few more errors. The bad thing is that we recently lost our health insurance. We could have picked up the policy for slightly over $1300.00 per month, which was not possible.

Ed, I'm wondering if this is something called a "trigger finger"? My mother had that at one point. I'll give her a call and ask some questions. -Jeanie

P.S. She's not home right now, but I'll let you know as soon as I talk to her.

Thanks Jeanie. I might be wrong, but I think the joint just somehow got pulled apart. I remember when I was a kid, a guy playing baseball got hit with a line drive, and he had a finger that I think looked something like that. The mamager jerked it back into place, and everything was A-OK. I'm thinking about trying that myself. Even though it doesn't hurt, it's annoying. I picked up a rounded glass a while ago, and it felt like it had a flat spot on it. Weird!

Any nurses among the membership? Ed, call your wife before you try jerking it back into place...

Ed,

It looks more like mild arthritis to me. Do the end of your finger periodically lock up? I'm be curious to know. I have a few remedies - of the natural kind if you think it might be.

My wife is a nurse, but I already know her answer. "I'm not a doctor".

Lisa,

It's not arthritis. It was just a freak accident. I never had problems with arthritis in my hands, but I appreciate your willingness to help. Guess what -- I'm getting to where I can type without making any more mistakes than I did before. The finger just looks a little goofy!

don't listen to Lisa, she'll have you shooting up and smoking stink weed.

On the other had, are you a US vet. I found out a few yrs ago that serving during Viet Nam gave me all benifits.
