So I was speaking to Osaka this evening after school, and was reminded of a funny/weird story from when I was working at Target. I was working on the Sales Floor and a customer approached me and asked "Do you carry of that faggy yogurt?"
To which I responded, "Excuse me?" and he
continued, pulling out his phone and looking at a list "You know,
FAGGY, F-A-G-E. The greek yogurt."
and smiled and asked "Fage? (pronounced fah-yay, as the commercials do)
Yes we carry that brand." The customer visibly wilted, and looked kind
of embarrassed and unsure at the same time, and he asked if I could
please show him where it was, which I did.
So that happened which I was reminded of from a recent Fage commercial where they REALLY enunciated it FAH-YAY.
Then I accidentally dislocated my right thumb. I fixed it, but I didn't
realize I was hyper extending it (I was trying to gently stretch it, my
whole hand is/was swollen from temperature change) until I felt a weird tickle on my arm, which turned out to be my dislocated thumb. I IMMEDIATELY started
massaging the joints (I'm double-jointed and used to hyper flexibility)
trying to figure out which joint I had messed up, and comparing it to
my left thumb, and after a moment it made an audible pop as the tendons
snapped back into place, and it swelled up.
This is especially aggravating as I was already wearing my compression gloves, which I thought
offered slightly more protection, but apparently they don't protect
against not paying attention and dislocating your thumb because high
pain tolerance meets hyper-mobility. So..
I can't take more
ibuprofen yet, and iced my hand instead, which hurt like hell and I have
bruises developing on the palm of my hand and also on the back of my
hand where the tendons snapped back. It hurts.
I would like very
much to brace or splint it to prevent further damage but I'm pretty
sure an ace bandage would cause more soft tissue damage, and I don't have a wrist brace that offers thumb support where the thumb joins the hand. Cause that is the joint I dislocated. I can't recommend it.
I noticed that the tips of my fingers are beginning to be shaped oddly,
like the joints are twisting or something. So that's something to keep
an eye on..
