#SoCS July 29/17 – Limb

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “limb.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Funny, this should be the prompt that Linda decided on for this week!

The other day, Lil Man, being cricket obsessed, has been begging anyone to go and play int he garden with him, to practice his batting and bowling skills.

Being rather tired still, I have avoided it at all costs (that and the fact I am NOT SPORTY AT ALL!) but this time, after a whole day of him whining, I decided to help him out, nice mummy that I am!

So there I was, at the wicket, wielding my bat, and I did pretty good, even if I do say so myself. Despite having a bat at least six inches too short, he didn’t get me out… but I did manage to sustain a few hits to my limbs! (See, got it in there!) My thigh, one knee and the other shin got whacked by stray balls.

Still, standing strong, I managed to stay in, until we had to run in from rogue showers!

The next day, after a particularly successful trip to the hairdressers with Lil Princess, she wanted braids, I decided I needed to embark upon some epic hair removal. The kids are threatening to cause havoc if I don’t take them swimming, so I had to get prepared.

Got me a new bikini waxing set, and then set about epilating the nether regions, as well as my lower limbs, when I noticed a bruise on my shin.

Lovely! That’ll look great at the party we are attending tonight! At least the sari will cover it! And there’s no hair!

    After my recent trip to the ER, my wife had to remove 12 EKG sensor/pad/things. There was only a medium amount of hair that came out with each one, and none were in a sensitive are. Bikini waxing??? You’re braver than you let on. I’d much rather have the cricket bruise.

    Sometimes I find bruises and have no idea where they came from… so what… lol! I think I simply don’t pay too much attention to the little and bigger bumps, cannot make it undone anyway… haha!

    Shame, Ritu. Cricket balls can really hurt. I also used to do this with my son, Greg.

    I thought the same thing with this week’s prompt – experience that fit the word so had to use.

    You are a good sport! You just hurt your elbow, now got the bruises in your limbs and still playing. Brave to have a wax job for your bikini….
