Of Immigration and the Cracking of Skulls

Last night, a bunch of poeple from the dorms played this game called "immigration". The idea behind the game is that everyone piles into some cars, drives over to some random place, then tries to get back to Warner without getting caught by the people in the cars.

The first round was pretty easy. The location was a 7-11 about a few blocks away from the campus. Everyone jumped out and started running their seperate directions. I on the other hand, casually walked straight down the cross-street the 7-11 was on and then continued until I got to Division. Then, I crossed on the crosswalk, took off my trenchcoat and draped over my arm and walked over to the campus. I was the first one back. It took everyone else about twenty minutes longer because they'd taken all these crazy and far out paths and many were diving into bushes and stuff.

The second round didn't go as well for me. I decided I didn't want to be running around anymore, so I chose to be one of the people in the cars out to get everyone else. Everything was fine and dandy until we got back, and we were going to chase down some people that had just made it close to the campus. The two other guys with me told me to go around the other side of these on-campus houses. What I didn't know was that for one of the houses, it had walls on both sides of the driveway which were at the same level as the rest of the ground, whereas the driveway was lower by a foot at the entrance. I ran around the lawns of the other houses until I saw the driveway and I didn't realize that it was the way I decribed it. I tripped over the first wall and landed head first into the other.

Needless to say, I'm not in a pleasant mood. Luckily, I'm okay. Nothing's broken or damaged too badly. I got a bit of a gash on my head. I only know this because there's a small amount of blood on my scalp, but I can't make out where on my head it's from. Plus, there wasn't a whole lot of blood, which assures me that it wasn't too hard a collision.

My lip was also split a bit on the inside, so I have a cotton ball in place to help it heal back together. That wound is more teeth related, so I'm treating it like I do when I bite my lips (my teeth are sharp enough that it's a similiar case). The most blood came from my left knee which picked up a nasty-looking wound. It looks far worse than I know it is. As with all injuries like that, my knee is a bit stiff, sore, and stings when I move it or touch it, but it should be fine. My right elbow is scraped up a bit, but the most annoying one is left palm.

The way I landed suggests that most of the impact of hitting the ground, after the wall, was taken by my left side. My left palm has several spots at the base of my thumb were rock indented themselves into my hand as I landed. Thankfully, none of the rocks stuck inside, but they left this lovely pattern of painful holes in my skin with little flaps that used to be the surface. Many of those flaps I was force to peel off, which caused a little more pain, but ultimately saved me some agony.

Other minor stuff includes sore shoulders and neck and a slight cut on my right wrist. So aside from a really annoying headache, a stiff knee, and a painful palm, I'm fine. Ibprofin helps a lot. I just pray I didn't get a concussion or something I don't know about it.

Anyway, don't worry too much about me, I'll be fine.

Um, yeah, I'm sort of hoping you didn't mess up your head too badly. It doesn't take a whole lot to jostle your brain around. Eeee. It hurtses us. :O

Regardless, it sounded like an interesting game, I guess. :P

Well, I don't seem to be having any difficulty with my mental capacity (that I've noticed), so it seems like I got away with the best of it. I always seem to get into these situations that should normally be worse, but rarely ever are...
