Pain

Yesterday I was tagged out trying to stretch a single into a double. This was painful for a few reasons. First, I had a legitimate base hit and I knew it so my first few steps out of the batters box were leisurely ones. Big mistake. Secondly, we were losing the game and had precious few outs remaining.

When I realized I might be picked off I could have reversed my steps but I thought I might beat the tag by sliding headfirst. Unfortunately for me, I slid over a rock which scraped a chunk of flesh out of my right hip.

The most painful part of the experience was spraying New Skin on the open wound. The second most painful part however was Ben's observation that until this heals, I may have to postpone the tattoo that I've been waiting six months to get. I should know more in a few days.

Yummy abrasion and my hairy belly here. (NSFW?)

that looks quite painful mate. I just got some strange looks here at the hostel for pulling up that pic. I hope you can still get your tat.
