Because I just shattered my old Olympic distance triathlon PR by over 14 minutes? (See last post.)
Because I’m giving 1 lucky reader a $75 gift certificate to OnlineShoes.com? (See 2 posts down, and ENTER yourself if you haven’t already! It’s the post from Monday with the big shoe image.)
Because my busted hand is turning purple and is about ready to fall off?
Yes. That’s why you need to “hand” it to me. Get it? Because I need a new hand. Funny, right? Oh jeez, when I have to explain the joke, usually the joke isn’t that funny. I apologize for being alive. So sorry.

Now, I think it’s at it’s peak of purpleness. Yesterday, it looked like this (with the discolored area highlighted in red below each image incase you can’t see where it’s discoloring):
Chicks dig scars; but apparently swelled, purple hands make them throw up a little in their mouth. Dang. I’m always so close... yet so far away.
