Thursday 13: Reasons Why I Love My Shoulder

1. It's hurting now and needs some TLC.
2. It makes rafting possible.
3. It's essential to getting dressed every day.
4. It makes every little movement you usually don't think about effortless.
5. You can't type without your shoulders. Well, that is.
6. You need your shoulders to hug your girlfriend.
7. You need your shoulders to get food out of the fridge and make dinner.
8. Shoulders play a key role in sex.
9. You need your shoulders to give a High-Five.
10. The novelty of being home all day watching cable movies wears off pretty quickly.
11. You need your shoulders' cooperation for really good chicken-fights.
12. Without your shoulders, it's harder to take criticism.
13. Sleep is a lot more comfortable with healthy shoulders.

Thanks for reading.

Aw, poor Matt. :( I understand what a sore shoulder is like - I have thoracic outlet syndrome and while it's on good behaviour most of the time these days when it decides to act up it really acts up. You really notice how much you use your shoulder when it hurting and you can't.
#8 hmmm if you are in that much pain I can't imagine why you might try. :)
#12 LOL that's too funny!

I understand needing a should for all the things you listed but #10. I would assume that it could be done without a shoulder! Novel list. I like it. Thanks for visiting today!

This is a fantastic list! I hope you feel better soon, because a man just feels like less of a man if he can't participate in chicken fights!

Be well...

Too bad we realize how much we love our body when one part hurts...Never thought there were so many "good uses" for a shoulder. Get well soon! happy TT, go hug your girlfriend, even if it hurts!
