2037, I break a hip

I just passed a significant anniversary in my orthopedic history: Thirty years ago last week (while visiting friends in Milwaukee) I got on a skateboard for the second and last time and promptly tore the top off my left tibia. While I was in the emergency waiting room, we got word that Elvis had died.

I’d actually mused to myself that I was about to enter my fourth decade without breaking a bone just a little while before my January 2007 fall, which succeeded in busting the other leg.
