The Dog Ate My Homework

I know I owe you photos, etc. but I have a really, really good excuse.

A splint on my left hand. Which makes it very hard to type.

So in a few days, I will catch you up on my Middle East trip. Until then, I am nursing a sprained thumb, really wishing it was broken so I’d have a cast (and my first ever broken bone) and then when people asked me how I broke my hand, I could answer:

Riding a camel.

Cross my heart. That’s the truth.

Further details TK (that’s “to come” in publishing lingo).

Ma salemi.

    Oh dear! I believe a sprain from a camel ride is just as impressive as a broken bone. Can’t wait to see the photos!

    Welcome home, Kirby! I’m sorry about your sprain, but I agree with Jaime – it sounds incredibly cool.

    Oh no! And I JUST ordered that yoropen (I think that what it was called) – now you need a SUPER yoropen.

    Riding a camel? Yeah, sure….

    What is a yoropen? I’m sure I need one! It’s hard to type with only one good hand.

    I thought of you as I sipped my Stella — I’m not usually a beer drinker but in that heat it was heavenly.
