Living on the edge

In January, driving down the road near our house, a car coming the other way lost control, skidded across two lanes, and crashed head first onto us. Miraculously, no one was injured -- although it took a month to fix our car, and the other guy was totaled.

In February, introducing my tennis-buddy to squash, he aims a hard forehand at the ball and connects with my left index finger. Four weeks on and it's still swollen.

In March, snow-tubing during a break at a conference in Utah, the guy in charge of shoving the tubes at the top of the hill shoved my group off before I could get into my tube. I descended the slope head first, looking up at the sky, bearing most of my weight on my left shoulder. Nothing broke.

It's been a funny kind of year that way.

This follows the "Sick man of Europe".

Just saying.

I saw the snowtube comment on facebook but didn't realise the gravity of it, so to speak. And what's it about squash? I remember seeing recent mention of someone else busting a knee in the game.

Maybe you're just exhausting all your bad luck quickly and relatively harmlessly. So things will go well from now on.

And now you have some waaay cool new stuff to teach your bacchas - "Look at me and learn, young punks, I know what I'm talking about - after all, I'm Almost-Indestructible Man!"

Seriously though, wow.
