I generally turn down anesthesia unless abdominal surgery is
involved.  No worries.  :)

And hey, I haven't hurt myself in over two months!  Or.. maybe that's
almost two months.  I can't remember.

I did a really beautiful hike with a younger and more nimble friend
last weekend.  Despite the slippery conditions, she was like
a gazelle, speeding down the trail.  Except the numerous times
she fell.. no fear in that girl.  I, on the other hand, walked at a
deliberate pace and didn't fall.  I'm in favor of not falling
and not breaking anything.
