Irony ^2 -- My A** In A Sling

...my "arm" in a sling.

Fell on the ice while clearing the driveway of ice/snow/slush...injured the elbow. 
Appears to be a bone bruise and nothing more, but the radiologist will let us know for certain tomorrow. (Yeah, I'm not a complete fool -- we had it x-rayed.)

Anywho -- irony of ironies, nested:

1.  I fall on the ice while out clearing the ice so that nobody will fall on it and get injured.

2.  The doctor said I might want to ice my elbow to help alleviate pain and prevent swelling...from the ice-related injury it sustained.

I think I should go to bed now, and hope that "Blessed Irony" has finished attempting to make her presence known.

 ;)

I originally wrote this as an email to a friend, but thought it was a good enough example of living irony to share.

Should we page Hari Seldon any time soon?

recursive reiteration? recursive nesting...good night, glad it didn't whack your keyboarding elbows ;-)

that acts like a shield against injury. :)

 Did you have ice cream to make up for your troubles?

Home-made.

...it wasn't for me, per se: today is Mumsie's birthday.  She would have wanted us to have chocolate cake in her honor.  We skipped out on the ice cream, but the cake was delicious.  :)

How could you do such a thing? Clean your driveway. Outrageous!

thinking that Wifey will continue to think that ice & snow covered driveways must be cleared, regardless of the inherent danger and oblivious -- or perhaps in spite of? -- any perceived threat to the health and well-being of her hard working, beset-upon hubby with a wounded wing...

~sigh~
