The Missing, the falling, the dropping

This is day 13 of my ankle injury and am finally able to start putting a little pressure on the ankle. My walking is still probably about a week off but that’s sooner rather then later. What is really bothering me is the title of this post. When you have crutches, everything is that much harder. When you miss dropping trash in the trash can then you have to annoyingly pick up the trash. Whenever I have to put the crutches in a spot, they have a tendency to fall over no matter what the situation. Carrying objects becomes a huge nuisance. If I pour myself a cup of soda then I’m challenged with the task of not being able to hold it while I move. That in turn makes me hop around holding the cup and obviously if I pour too much, it starts spilling all over the place. Plus virtually anything I carry gets dropped and then I get pissed off because I have to put too much energy to picking it up. I can’t wait for this nightmare to be over.

I finished the book Toys by James Patterson and it was quite an easy read. The book has 120 chapters or so and each on is broken down to 2-4 pages per chapter. It made me feel like a kid again. The story was just really rushed and what I considered major events would fly by in a page or two. Plus things get confusing because everything is set in the future so they have upgraded abilities and are able to do things not possible in real life. I’d say I moderately enjoyed the book but probably wouldn’t recommend it. The amount of time James Patterson put towards the novel reminds me of the Stephen King skit in Family Guy when King was pitching his next novel and he just picks up a lamp from the desk and says it’s going to be about a lamp monster. Same deal I think because this could have been a much better book with some thought put into it. If anyone wants to read it after my rave review, I’ll be happy to give it to you.
