Staved Thumb?

bulbgirl fell down. she slipped.
it was dark and the walkway was slippy.
the area around her thumb is now a lovely shade of purple.
excess grit caused her to slip in this dark area.

what on earth was she doing going in to an area where it is dark and slippy? well it was just a little saunter down to the local shops.
the sodium street lighting was not working as normal turning a normally
familiar area into a treacherous area.

now bulbgirl is nursing her hand and wrist, inside a bandage, not knowing yet if she has any broken or fractured bones.

could this have been avoided? yes. the answer is EDC.
EDC is short for Every Day Carry. carry what every day?
a flashlight of course.

"why do you have a torch with you, bulbboy?"
people think i'm crazy carrying a flashlight most of the time.
my answer is always "you never know when the lights are going to go out," because you never know when the lights are going to go out.

here at bulbboy.co.uk, i always recommend attaching a small LED torch to your keychain. buy lots of them, give them to your friends. they're cheap and the batteries last for ages.

they might just save you breaking some bones.
