The other day Bossy was explaining something with her arms flying all about — which never happens except every minute of every day — when suddenly Bossy smacked her elbow on a doorframe so hard she thought she heard the sound of bone shattering.
Bossy took the above photo in a bathroom mirror to document the elbow’s bruise after less than 24-hours, but when Bossy downloaded the photo to her computer, she couldn’t stop staring at it because the angle of Bossy’s arm, combined with the large welt, reminded Bossy of something. Finally Bossy figured it out:
Happy weekend, Bossy’s council.

leslie saysJune 18, 2010 at 9:58 am
BWHAHAHAHAHHA! Oh, sorry.
chook saysJune 18, 2010 at 10:26 am
ouch. the not funny bone.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysJune 18, 2010 at 10:42 am
So, did you break it?
Have you checked out my blog? I have a hideous picture of my broken nose and forehead.
Not June Cleaver saysJune 18, 2010 at 10:53 am
You’re right. I got a chuckle at your expense. Nice that you can see the humor in even your own injuries. 😉
corrie saysJune 18, 2010 at 10:53 am
Ice ice ice ice ice ice!!!!!
I too banged my elbow so hard against the door frame.. it’s never been the same since.
I think the nerve was affected b/c of the hit & then the swelling. How I wish I had iced it ’til it turned blue!
Kelly, The Glass Dragonfly saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:00 am
Oh. That looks like it still hurts!!
Heide saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:00 am
OUCH! I walk into furniture and always have bruises on my legs, but they don’t have as many nerves….
lauren saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:03 am
i have a sneaky suspicion you may have been doing an imitation of me 😉
Sallie (FullTime-Life) saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:20 am
Ouch. Be careful of your funny bone. Many of us would miss it.
marathonmom saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:27 am
Damn. If it gets bigger than your boob I’d go see a doctor!
dexter saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:41 am
Dude you’re a mess!!!! Club Bobo is open for the season
Di saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:42 am
I am forever banging a knee, elbow, finger, knuckle. Lots of bruises but no reindeer noses YET.
dgm saysJune 18, 2010 at 12:21 pm
To paraphrase Rudolph, “Me thinks you’re cuuuuuute! Me thinks you’re cuuuuute!”
Lynn in Tucson saysJune 18, 2010 at 1:20 pm
Lynn & Bossy have matching elbows. Arnica, I say!
Kelly saysJune 18, 2010 at 4:53 pm
Happy weekend, Bossy and Bossy’s giant friggin’ elbow bruise!
Cupcake Murphy saysJune 18, 2010 at 10:20 pm
Dear lord gah is that not the whole of life? It’s like the poor man’s version of We Are ALL ONE—sometimes I feel like, at a certain point, it ALL reminds me of something else. And I love that. And I’m quite fond of Bossy for illustrating this so very clearly.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysJune 18, 2010 at 11:00 pm
BOSSY, clearly that injury did not break your funny bone!
josh saysJune 19, 2010 at 12:35 am
I’m sorry your elbow esssploded!
Cage Free Family saysJune 19, 2010 at 1:25 am
Heh. I talk with my hands, arms… well, whole body too. Someone once asked me if I was a flight attendant in a past life. :-p
Timmy saysJune 19, 2010 at 2:32 pm
Was wine involved in this incident? That thing is the size of a lemon!!!
Shayera saysJune 19, 2010 at 4:50 pm
Oh my! That’s a hellova bruise, Bossy. Ice and rest. And wine. Feel better.
WebSavvyMom saysJune 19, 2010 at 8:36 pm
–>That is hilarious. The comparison – not the bruise.
amber star saysJune 20, 2010 at 11:51 am
Hope you are feeling better now. I have no icky bruises…just icky rash from an allergic reaction to an antibiotic which is NO fun in the hot summertime.
Timmy saysJune 20, 2010 at 7:52 pm
Happy fathers day to Bossy’s real husband, not that Cusak guy. Also to Bossy’s bro and of course Bossy’s dad!
Marly saysJune 25, 2010 at 8:54 am
That’s some serious flailing! How cool to have evidence of it. I hope some day to speak so passionately that I result in bruises as well…
