If I’m going to get injured, given how much I’ve been running, wouldn’t you think it’d be related to that? Good news is it’s not (and knock on wood I stay running-injury-free), bad news is I have tendinitis in my left arm. The occupational nurse at work had to come to my cube to do an evaluation (humiliating), order a bunch of ergonomic office supplies and teach me the proper way to sit, type, etc. She also gave me a brace to wear but I couldn’t handle it for more than one day. I can’t bear to have another one of these conversations in the elevator:
“Aw, look at your arm. What happened?”
“Tendinitis. Been writing too many of those damn company e-newsletters…”
Does it get any lamer than corporate world cubicle injuries? What’s worse is tendinitis really hurts! I had no idea. So if you need me, I’ll be the one with the cushy mouse pad and foot stool at her desk, sitting at a 90 degree angle, popping too many ibuprofen.
