Injured, again?

I hate to do this because whenever Laurie Lindeen is mentioned that freaky freak freak show with all the fake names comes out to play, but if you’re not reader of Ms. Lindeen’s blog (and, you know, you should be because it’s really well written), you might take an interest in her latest post, which mentions this:
Middle-aged husband injured playing a child’s game. I don’t blame him a bit. Sometimes you’ve got to push back against time.
“You look familiar, have we met?” says the orderly wheeling he and his very swollen foot into a holding area.
“Nah,” my husband says.
I peek behind the curtain to assess our surroundings.

My totally wild, speculative guess? He slid playing kickball in the front yard with the young’un and twisted his ankle.

You?

    Fuck.Add another 2 years for him to play a show in mpls. I felt one coming on soon but now….

    Beats a screwdriver through the hand though….
    Bad news is it probably means more of my only gripe- that damn DRUM MACHINE !!!!!!!

    I kinda miss the days when I could throw out the Laurie Lindeen bait and immediately get a bite from that crazy PW stalker. Good times….

    My guess on the injury: full contact hopscotch with Michael Bland.

    God lets hope not…..

    So with his injury and this new flu virus, I don’t think we’ll be seeing Paul out and about for a decade or so.

  7. Jake 30.Apr.09 at 4:17 pm

    Screw the flu virus….can’t live your life in fear. Paul is immortal except his two weaknesses….screwdrivers and now kickball. So If he stays way from those two we could see him in I’d say a year or two.

    Does he have insurance?

  9. Jonathon Hackett 30.Apr.09 at 9:04 pm

    Paul doesn’t need insurance. He gets money. He’s stanky rich. He’s so forgetful, people callin’ him cocky; he come out the jeweler, people callin’ him Rocky.

    If ya follow me around,
    with a tape recorder,
    I’m sure you’d get,
    …a couple of hobbled footsteps?

    Jonathon – That was disgustingly awful word play.

    No offense intended.

  12. Jonathon Hackett 30.Apr.09 at 11:12 pm

    None taken. Blame 50 Cent’s smash hit “Get Money”. I’m much cleverer, I swear.

    I’m happy to hear it. 🙂

    Looks like that “freaky freaky freakshow with all the fake names” just showed up in the comments section of the Emergency Room Visit entry on LL’s blog. Scary.

  15. headphones 02.May.09 at 10:11 am

    Yeah… I just read that… It was scary…

    “Forgive me for choosing a public forum and writing my thoughts. I should have just done this in silence or in my personal journal. However, I can’t guarantee those writings won’t be a book in the future and this whole subject comes up again.”

    Aha! She wants to marry PW just to use him as a springboard to get her own book published! I think I just figured her whole scheme out.

    Well, that, or she’s just a self-important PW stalker. But that’s a longshot and I probably never should have brought it up.

    I’ll go with my first instinct.

    I’m not sure whether to laugh or squirm, so I’m doing both. Gosh darn internet makes it much too easy to become too invested in somebody’s life.
