That's Gonna Hurt

Haven’t had a shower quite yet. But I have got a closer look at my left knee. That is going to hurt later. Like after I wash and dress it some how. It looks plenty gnarly right now. Yeesh.

Been trying to watch “John Carter” this evening. It seems to be a real yawn fest. I’m 20 or so minutes in and he’s just managed to figure out how to walk on the surface of Barsoom.

Now I was a big Edgar Rice Burroughs fan when I was younger. I read virtually all of the Tarzan stories and most of the rest of his more outlandish writings as well. My favorites were John Carter and Tarzan. The way he wrote Tarzan is pretty much different from anything you’ll see at the movies or on TV. Different era, that man lived in.

I dunno, I may be too late, but what I would do is smear some Savlon or better still some homeopathic Wounds Ointment (which you won't have) or any other non-stinging antiseptic CREAM, then cover it with a big old Elastoplast, if you've got any of them in the house. After letting sit for a couple of hours, take the Elastoplast off, GENTLY wipe the gravel, scabs etc off with cotton wipes or squares such as Swispers (you know, the ones that have a silky, soft cover so that you get no cotton fibres in your sore), add more cream from time to time during the process until it is clean, then reapply the cream and re-bandage. That way you should avoid all the stinging! Good luck on that.

Aaagh, I guess it's one of the hazards of riding a bike. But still, you only just got the thing!

Hope you showered and let the water run over it.. Best way to clean a rough wound.
