Hey, ya'all, watch this.

When I started to close my garage door last night, the old springs broke and the door dragged me to the concrete in half a second, basically doing a sort of full-nelson body slam on me. The aftermath is a good reminder that my muscularskeletal system doesn't handle sudden wrenching impacts as well as it used to.

It's my own fault, though. Just a day before, noting that this year we'd replaced a dryer, refrigerator, lawn mower, sink, toilet, and microwave, I said those fateful words: "There's not much left around here to break".

Well played, Murphy's law.

Ouch!!!! I hope you feel better today! Did the door actually detach?

See - you should NEVER tempt fate. Never.

Just the opposite of attaching -- it slammed all the way down and now absolutely will not go up again. The good news is that the garage is now well sealed against winter, but the bad news is that I have no way to get the car in there.

It didn't hurt near as much at the time as it did the next morning!
