Based on my now-extensive experience in the ED (and it's starting to freak me out: I'm getting to be the Old Geezer of the Department. I've even outlasted two trauma surgeons who went on to other things because they needed a break...!):
Things that kill you dead and which you should only do with great caution:
Crossing the street.
Stepping off a curb carrying coffee.
Things which are very survivable and appear exceedingly safe:
Getting kicked in the face by a horse.
Sorry, mom, but I think the only way for me to live out my life in peace is to take up skydiving. It's the last safe thing left to do.
PS- Stitches come out in a few days. Training will resume this week!
