The Forces of Chaos have arrayed against me again, this time to prevent me from going to karate practice. (Last month they tried, unsuccessfully, to prevent me from finishing the semester.)

I twisted my ankle while performing the incredibly complex task of walking down stairs. Since the ensuing pain turned even my walk to the BART into a long and arduous trek, I doubt I’ll be donning my gi tomorrow night.

Since I have to walk around on the edge of my right foot to walk at all, maybe I should consider it fumikomi practice.
