It’s no fun to get an injury like a broken arm or a sprained ankle. It hurst, obviously, and then your whole life is disrupted while you heal. But you know what’s worse than getting injured? Getting injured in a really stupid way. And not a funny-stupid way, like getting 2nd degree burns from lighting a fart. I mean basic, embarrassing, “how could you possibly do that” kind of stupid. Like, burning yourself by ironing your pants while you’re still wearing them stupid.
