So there I was, lounging on my cloud (after X got up to get a drink of water... cloud hog), and Richard was out feeding the yard dogs when the phone rang. I mean, seriously, do I have to do everything around here?
It was the musher. She wanted me to post a blog entry (see, I really have to do everything) to let everyone know that she had a bit of an "incident" on the training trail today and wouldn't be able to post for a bit.
So I was like "well, what kind of incident and will it hinder the distribution of my dentastix".
From what she says, here's what happens (but I'm pretty sure she was all goofed up on pain pills, so this probably isn't what happened really):
Apparently while they were out on the training trail, a vicious, and possibly rabid stick jumped out in front of the team. The musher, being a good musher, proceeded to throw herself on the stick to save the team, and suffered a hand injury.
Riiiight, so I asked for some proof, because I'm thinking she's all making it up so she can sit around and eat Oskri bars and snack on snack bag stuff until Iditarod time... I'm sorry I asked.
Normally I'd just plop the picture right in the blog for all to see, but its just so nasty that it even put me off my dentastix snack, so I'm going to post a link to it for all of you ghoulish people that think you want to see it, but will squeal in disgust and probably lose whatever meal you last had and get all mad at me for warning you, but not warning you enough, so here's the warning:
WARNING, if you click on this link you will most likely urp up your lunch and have horrible nightmares for weeks and weeks and most likely do some cursing or at the very least say to yourself "um musher, you better take off that ring before your entire hand swells to the size of the Hindenburg". This picture is not for the faint of heart, small children, or just about anyone in general and I have it on good authority that the cartoonist dweeb actually dry heaved upon viewing it, and she's seen some nasty things before.
Ok, so you've been warned, so go ahead and click here to see it, but I don't want to hear any complaining!
P.S. the musher is keeping the stick for posterity and I'm trying to get it bronzed, autographed and sold on e-bay.
