It took nearly 20 years of playing Ultimate for me to get my first feature-altering injury. I’ve had many sprained ankles, sore shoulders, split lips and bruised egos, but this one is new. The tip of right hand middle finger has gone all floppy. It doesn’t really hurt, but it feels …wierd. When I pick up a glass my brain thinks that the glass is warped, when it’s actually that my brain is unfamiliar with the new angle of my finger. Strange. My friend Lucas, who is a doctor, said that it might be a strained ligament and that it might heal and resume normal shape after a while…or maybe not. In the meantime, I will be limited in my ability to say “fuck you” with my right hand. Fortunately, I’m a lefty.
