Walking the Earth

Giant Ankle

On Thursday morning I attempted to play tennis for the first time in years. Actually, I have never really played tennis–squash has been my racquet sport of choice. But tennis is outdoors, which is perfect for the spring, and so I gave it a go.

All was going well, and it was lots of fun, until I attempted what would have undoubtably been a very impressive backhand, and ended up rolling over my ankle and spraining it real nicely. Since then, it has been about three times the size of my other ankle, and all kinds of interesting colours.

I can still walk, so I don’t think anything is broken in there. Yeah, that’s my expert medical opinion, which I’m sure is beyond questioning. Today it’s not quite as gigantic as yesterday, and there’s some tingling sensation when I walk. Weird, huh?

So now you are completely up-to-date on the status of my ankle. I don’t know how you would have survived otherwise.

And yeah, as soon as this thing feels better, I’ll be right back on the tennis court, maybe this time with proper shoes. Take that, huge gross ankle!
