Big ol’ bruise

I accidentally kicked myself — hard — in the shin while floundering in the pool on Saturday.  I don’t remember exactly how it happened, although I was probably falling off or clamoring to get on some foam noodles.  I do remember that I said, “Ow that hurts a surprising amount given that it was my bare foot and I did it to myself!  That’s gonna leave a mark.”  It has coalesced into a bruise that is about the size of the circle made with my thumb and pointer finger.  Try it yourself: make an OK sign with your hand, place the circle on the front of your leg a few inches below the knee, and imagine that as a blue-green bruise inflicted by your own awkward watery flailing.  Impressive, eh?
