Fact. I am a true Couch Potato.
Fact. The Apple Ipad2 is stronger than it looks.
These, I have proven to myself without a doubt. How, you ask?
Recently, I had the misfortune of falling down the stairs with my ipad.
Luckily, I was able to hang on the railings and so stop in the middle of the stairs. My ipad was not so lucky. It gracelessly fell down to the last steps.
But due to the extreme pain I was feeling at that time, I didn’t noticed the ignoble fate my ipad had, for my attention was focused on screaming at the top of my lungs. That is, to let everyone know within shouting distance how much in pain I was. I’m not one to suffer in silence.
After the debacle, we found out to our surprise that the ipad sustained not even a scratch. Surprise? Yes, I am. I was not expecting the ipad to be capable of avoiding any damage after such a fall.
But for me, I wasn’t so lucky. Couldn’t handle the pain (I have low-threshold of pain) and so went to the hospital emergency. Waited for a loooong time to have my xray, only to find out that the doctors have no experience handling bone injuries, but told I had chip fracture, had a cast on my left foot, then advised to go to another ortho doctor for a second opinion.
Now comes to why I believe I may be a true-blue couch potato…
Because even after having a cast, and thus no mobility at all for the first few weeks (because of the pain and the cast), my activities for the past few weeks really didn’t change AT ALL.
There is no activity to be curtailed. No plans to be postponed.
I am still where I am, doing what I do every day… The cast didn’t affect anything except I have a hard time going to the comfort room and I have my food brought up to my room (which is a plus).
What it boils down to is, cast or not, my life goes on seamlessly.
