    • it's my 25th birthday today. I spent my last 15 minutes of my 24th year having quarter-life crisis, realizing how scary being old is with all the responsibilities and everything. I barely listen to people who tells me that I'm too old to do things. So what if I still order happy meals in McDonalds? It comes with toys! You don't get toys if you order adult meals. Why can't we just stay young forever?
      Cheers,

                  • 2 day ago my older girl have flu
                    Yesterday the younger one catch it too
                    This morning I wake up with a huge headache after a too much short night
                    The older got better
                    The younger got temperature this afternoon, for suddenly wake up and run everywhere like if she had never been sick
                    I decide to skip coffee today hoping it will help me to sleep tonight.

                    I think I got too much of too much short night... I need to rest!


                    So Phalange, do you got your mister right now?

                          • A Hole in a Leg

                            While turning around in the city we find a nicely spotted closed restaurant with the mention for rent in front of it.
                            Today we go back there and I get out for have a closer look at the place. Not so bad, but would need a major redecoration!
                            It's a 2 stare resto with big window, the first floor is very wide!
                            Can't really see the second floor from the side walk... I got the bright idea to cross the road to have a better view of it.

                            I crossed the road, put a feet on the sidewalk, turn back for have a look at the resto, turn back front for go more far on the sidewalk...
                            The first step goes in the empty... and the rest goes way to much fast for I can even realize what is happening in a fraction of second I'm one meter more low. It was a small hole, you need to be "lucky" for going strait to it, well centered!
                            As soon as my hand touch the sidewalk on both side they push me out. It was a in and out in 2 second... yah a little bit more slow to get out of the hole than falling in it.
                            Hopefully for me the water level was very low, maybe a 20 centimeter.

                            I must have said couple of word I better not repeat here.

                            I cross back the road to the car and take out my sandal which had the most of the dirty. I use the wet tissues we have in the car for wash the hand of the kid for wash my leg and feet, those thing are antiseptic... it should help a little to not get some infection.

                            While cleaning the right leg (the second to go in the hole) i feel like a hole on it. What I understand is when i fall this leg hit the edge of the hole.
                            Now that I'm at home and everything is cleaned and disinfected I can clearly see... a chunk of skin is gone. One centimeter wide by an half, like if someone had cut a square to the bone. Upper the hole I have some scratch until the knee.

                            I left the (old anyway) sandal on the sidewalk

                            Strangely, NOW, the scratch hurt way more than the hole which don't even hurt. Tomorrow must be another story!

                            The first time I find the "hole" I immediately got a though about the foreign football player who got an infection (I think it was at a leg too) and was abandoned in his room, alone, not paid since many month... He died.
                            I'm not abandoned and alone, but their is no way I would get an infection! My wife bring me a kind of paste, it's write Betadine - Povidone Iodine (10%), not sure of how much good it is... but I spread it to all scratch and fill the hole with it... it didn't really hurt... I hope it's not expired!

                            The kid are curious and afraid in the same time. The older one don't stop asking for see my leg... but don't want fall asleep on this leg side.
                            I must add that the disadvantage to be hairy is that bandage don't stick well... I have a very little blood running from the "hole", almost nothing, but not very nice to see!

                              • It will be alright Gab.

                                Right after fall everything was wash with antiseptic wipe (not the best but better than nothing) arrived at home I clean well everything and cover everything with a kind of antiseptic paste (sticky).

                                This morning nothing was bleeding anymore. The antiseptic paste keep thhink moist... Good for the beginning, but now I want it dry!
                                Everything was clean so I just put a dry bandage upper it for protect it. It should be dry by tonight. After that it would be a matter of time for everything to heal.

                                Don't worry I will keep a close eyes on this, if anything seem slighty wrong I will go see a doctor.

                                For the pain... It's not that bad. Only the scratch hurt.
                                I'm even surprise that nothing hurt that much this morning (front leg is not a particularly sensible place)
