Long story short, I was in my BJJ class and took a rough shot to the leg. It wasn’t that serious, and we didn’t stop the match. However when I came home, I had a bulge like Mount Vesuvius rising from my shin, and it’s currently turning interesting colors.

I love the way the official medical diagnosis for such things is, ‘Ouch.’

Does it hurt when I poke it? Yes. ‘So don’t poke it.’

It looks ugly! ‘So don’t look at it. Pants are your friend.’

I can’t fault them. It really doesn’t hurt. My leg carries my weight without pain. I finished the BJJ class.

But this thing, wooo, gnarly. It looks bad.

‘So don’t look at it.’
