Not weird. Not weird at all. Having had a broken foot, I know exactly how embarrassing it is to have someone help prepare you to get into the shower without killing yourself. At least with jumping a tank full of sharks, you have an interesting story to tell the person helping you use the toilet…
Time I accidentally tried to cut a finger off… I managed not to damage too much and I spent a lot of time having to have someone else cut my food up like I was a toddler and stuff like that. Ended up having to switch handedness which many years later is rather useful…
I’ve had both feet casted, fun abounds on getting that ready and having to sit on the edge of a tub then go into it backwards, park in it sideways and keep your breadsacked casts on the edge… you learn to live with it.
Having been a nurses’ aide in a retirement home… you can get used to anything. Just hope they still respect you in the morning.
Hubris is thinking … “I’d love to help get you naked and clean you up.” LoL no?
It’s kinda your job to bring that stuff up when necessary, AVS. ‘Cause I ain’t putting it in the strip.
Couldn’t use a mouse, couldn’t type, bathrooms were difficult, writing was a huge chore, driving a stick was an adventure, but the worst part of breaking my hand was not being able to play my bass. The band was NOT happy.
Something like this happened to me
My buddy Josh and I were pro wrestlers on the indie circuit for a few years. At a show in SF he was taking a bump off a ladder and some idiot from the audience fell into the ladder and he came straight down breaking both of his arms and both of his wrists. He was in full casts on both arms all the way up to the pits for months. I had to do a lot of things for my bro those months, horrible horrible things.
Years later I was best man at his wedding and the opening line of my toast was simple.
“You all know why I deserve to be best man, its because I would do it all again?
Sounds a bit like what prompted me to write this strip. A friend’s wife broke both arms during a skiing trip- and he had to be a really understanding and helpful husband til the casts came off. Yikes. Tip o’ the hat, Chris- you’re very much one of the best people I’ve ever met.
