Poor Biggie!

biggie-smalls-the-illest

My leg with the broken hip is now swollen beyond recognition. It still looks like a leg, just not mine.

When I had trouble getting it up on the bed, I spoke to it aloud, offering encouragement. It seemed to respond. So I’ve named it Biggie.   If you look at this picture of Biggie, imagine the puffiness transposed to a leg and voila, that’s what it looks like. Even my foot is fat and puffy, like the foot of an enormous baby.

Naturally, I have named the other leg Tupac. Respect.   Here, enjoy the horror of my incision.

There’s another smaller one a few inches down, but I don’t want anyone to accuse me of being too gory.

    OUCH! It makes me feel all ooooooogly! You poor thing! You’re gonna look so badass though.

  4. Sister you are so street. Big respect!

  5. David Duff says:

    This trick of talking to parts of your body and getting them to swell up, does it work on anything else besides legs?

    Just askin’!

  6. annemarie says:

    you could say that you did this deliberately and call yourself a blue-chip artist?

  7. WendyB says:

    You have bad-ass legs!

  8. K-Line says:

    Eeeek! I’m sure you will get lots of mileage out of this over the next few years – pun intended!

    Are you sure the photo of the incision isn’t art?

    Yo, yo, yo, I see you haven’t lost your sense of humor. That’s what’ll get you through. You sound like the pre-fracture Sister Wolf, which is good. Keep up the recuperation. Same for Max.

    alittlelux – I miss you too. Fuck da police!

    JimmyP – Well, it’s Fierce. Metal staples are just around the corner from studs.

    Sarah P – Yep, badass. If only it were on my face.

    Make Do – Much love.

    David Duff – See me after school.

    annemarie – It is actually Found Art. (and I wrote this post before the other one…just a funny coincidence)

    WendyB – Erin Wasson will be copying me, just wait.

    IHeartFashion – Oh, you can’t begin to Understand Art.

    K-Line – Hahaha, every senior citizen is gonna be showing off their hip replacement scars. I don’t know how this scar will rate. It’s called a “closed reduction” (eeoow!)

    Louise – Thank you! Ow is definitely the salient word.

    WCGB – Philistine!

    andrea – YES, I am still me, just swollen.

    Please rename your hip and all body parts after safe middle of the road unarmed and undruggy artists who live in Donegal. Dana and Daniel O’Donnell will do.

    Stay safe Sister. Or is it Sista now? * shakes hand in fiesty black chick gesture*

    Thug limbs. I dig.

    And that looks painful as hell. Please get better quickly.

  15. Juri says:

    Word nigga! But please stop recreating yourself by breaking your limbs already, dude. Go mutilate others instead!

  16. arline says:

    I am also glad you have not lost your sense of humor. OUCH!

    xoxo

  17. Biggie! I’m choking up now. But he lives on through your leg. I can relate to the swelling, although I’m sure your poor leg is worse than my dumpling feet and fat knees.
