And the Winner Is....

Shelly Jackson of Philadelphia. Congratulations Shelly. I'll email you to get your address for the gift certificate. (Shelly e-mailed so she didn't show up in the comments.) She correctly guessed that I've sprained an ankle 12 times (so close Susan). I've sprained my left 7 times and my right 5 times and I'm really not trying to even things up. I've had many sensational falls but my favorite sprain was when we lived in the country in Maryland and I had to ditch the car in a heavy snowstorm and I was hiking the rest of the way back home. I wasn't happy about it because I was in a business suit and had left my boots in the garage that morning (I know, I know) but I was finally feeling good about things when I climbed over our neighbor's fence and started hiking across their pasture getting close to home. I looked around and noticed how beautiful the snow had made everything, and how quiet and peaceful it was, and how smooth and even and deep the snow was and my leg disappeared down a gopher hole.

Thanks for playing. Look for another gift certificate opportunity soon.

P.S. I've had stitches eight times.

I am amazed to hear the high number of injuries you have sustained, Theresa. I must be way more careful - 1 broken arm (slip and fall on ice in KC) - no stitches (can't even sew either!), and no sprains.
