Digital bunny

I shut my fingers in the door
And I can’t use them any more
They will not bend,
They will not press,
They’re little use to help me dress,
They can’t do buttons, keys or rings…
In fact, they can’t do many things.
I really need the fingers working
Lest it seem that I am shirking.
Pain all through my hand and wrist
My normal happy self is … well…
I’m not quite pleased, it isn’t funny
This is not a happy bunny.

    Ouch! I dread to ask which hand it is, as you can usually manage (after a fashion) without the leading hand… whichever one it is, I hope you get the use of it soon. I tried to chop the tip of my finger off on Sunday, luckily it isn’t the one I type with!

  9. Oh dear, Sue, that is most unfortunate. An excellent poem though so a tiny silver lining to the cloud.


  10. Oh no, I am sorry you hurt yourself Sue and I hope your hand is soon better!
    I am sorry, but I DID laugh but only because the poem was so good! 🙂

    You poor thing. Hope those fingers are on a happier bunny soon.


  12. Eliza Waters says:

    Oh, dear, is this a message from the Universe to take a blogging break?
    So sorry about your pain, Sue. I hope you mend swiftly!


  13. Hope it wasn’t a CAR door. I did that. OUCH. it gets better pretty fast, but for a writer … double ouch.


  14. Marcia says:

        My suggestion is, don’t do that any more! I once had a car door slam on my hand and latch in place. It dented my hand so deep, the ER folks thought I’d broken every bone. Nope. Not a one. But I couldn’t use that hand for a week. I hurt just thinking about you slamming your fingers! Oh, man!! I hope it feels MUCH better, every day! Lots of love and healing energy comin’ atcha. ❤


  15. I’m so sorry you’re hurting, Sue. 😦

    Sue’s unhappy accident.

    So sorry to hear it, Sue! And yet … you kept your presence of mind, your creativity and your wit and shared a wonderful poem with us despite. I particularly enjoyed your non-rhyming line.

    Good thing hugs can still go ’round with boo-boo fingers. Sending one your way and hoping plenty of people in your live space are giving plenty.


  18. Eow!. Hope your fingers recover soon! However did you type this?!


  19. Bernadette says:

    Poor bunny, I feel your pain. My fingers don’t work too good because of the awfulritis.


  20. Ouch! I hope they are getting better, Sue?

    In 2001, I broke my upper right arm in two places. It was in a sling for 3 months and I was determined it was not going to stop me from trying to type. OK, typing with one hand was fine, but when I needed to add ‘@’ or ‘£’, then things became a little more difficult. I carried on, though. 😀
