Q: From that photo it looks like you hurt your arm. How did that happen?
A: The President of the United States called upon me to save the country from a terrorist attack. Although I neutralized the problem, some injuries were sustained in the process.
Q: How did you really hurt your arm?
A: Like an idiot, I did a fairly heavy weight routine during the day, forgetting that I had volunteered to help a neighbor move that evening. By the time the day was over, I had overextended my arm.
Q: So is your arm broken?
A: No. The doctor thinks itâ€™s some sort of sprain. He said if I donâ€™t have full use of it in three or four days, I need to see a specialist.
Q: Full use of your armâ€¦.?
A: I canâ€™t straighten my arm out. And it hurts like you wouldnâ€™t believe when I try to do that.
Q: How has your hurt arm affected your life?
A: Well, Marathon Girl gives me a lot of â€œget wellâ€ kisses. Thatâ€™s never a bad thing.
Q: So itâ€™s all positive then?
A: No. This morning Marathon Girl had to help me put my shirt on. That was embarrassing.
Q: Are you able to work?
A: Miraculously the injury hasnâ€™t affected my ability to type. That's a good thing since writing makes up 90 percent of my work day.
Q:Â Has your arm affected your ability to watch LOST?
A: No, but after Wednesdayâ€™s episode, I wish it would have. That one sure was a snoozer. Who cares about Jackâ€™s tattoos! And will someone just ask the Others a direct question like: Who the hell are you and what exactly are you doing on this island?
Q: Can you still run?
A: Yes. But I have to slow down as I canâ€™t swing my arm as much as Iâ€™d like. Iâ€™m not complaining. Iâ€™m just happy to be able to work out.
Q: You sound like Superman! Is there anything you canâ€™t do?
A: Lift anything over five pounds.
Q: Wait. I just noticed itâ€™s your left arm thatâ€™s hurt. Arenâ€™t you left handed?
A: Yes, I am. Itâ€™s been an interesting few days using my right hand for most everyday tasks. It wasnâ€™t until I hurt my arm that I realized how the world is made for right handed people. Itâ€™s been an eye opening experience to say the least.
Q: Any plans on becoming a right hander after you stop wearing the sling.
A: I donâ€™t think so. I was born left handed and Iâ€™ll die left handed.
Q: So will we hear more about your arm in the future?
A: Not unless it needs to be amputated.
