Lightning strikes twice
Sure it wasn't the greatest idea to sail tonight after work, but it was really, really good in the backyard. I spent a good amount of time working on protecting the stitches and figured I was good to go.
What I didn't count on was a second accident as the same fin bit me again in the back calf just inches under the original bite.
I was stunned. Twice in one week!? At least I was right in Herb's backyard and I came ashore and walked home leaving a trail of blood down the street.
No trip to the hospital this time. Callista sterry stripped the wound and I'm patched up and ready for more.
First thing - I'm sanding down the fin a bit. This thing is obviously out to get me. UPDATE - via Facebook, Chris thinks I should just destroy it. I'm inclined to agree.
UPDATE 2 : Of course its going to be windy again soon. South 15-25 Friday and SW 15-25 Saturday. Cripes - at this rate I'll be on crutches by the time I head to Maui in October for the Magazine board tests!
