Surprising Things I Have Learned About Only Having One Working Arm

Making dinner: quite easy, if you plan ahead carefully

Blowing your nose: nigh on impossible

i think you may have some unusual nose blowing style.. in test conditions nose blowing has not proved difficult in one hand......

Did the test conditions include HAVING to blow your nose? Cos it's easy with one hand if there's no... content. But try it with content, and it's a different story.

Also try it with the hand you don't write with.

Thank you for experimenting though.

Oh you poor thing! I feel for you, having broken both wrists (though not at the same time!) and there are lots of things you can't do with one hand, some of which are not suitable for publication!

I hope you heal up really quickly, and are soon out of pain.

Have you tried it footballer fashion? Maybe if those kids come back you could waltz out the front in your sling, blow your nose contents in their general direction and smile unnervingly at them. Might just do the trick ;)

Gilly, thanks for the sympathy! I think I'm a wee bit better off with a broken arm than a broken wrist... so far I've managed to do everything 'important'.

WP, I'll try it and let you know.
