How do you thrift on crutches?
So, I went skiing in the mountains for winter vacation, and on the second to last day I caught ice (on the bunny slope(!) teaching my daughter how to snowplow), twisted my knee around and was pulled down the remainder of the mountain by ski patrol.
I have always wondered what it would be like getting rescued by a red jacket with the white cross on it, but when it actually happened, it wasn't nearly as sexy as I had envisioned.
Anyway, after a tedious ER visit 2 hours away from the mountain, I was finally discharged with crutches and some awesome pain meds. Luckily, nothing is broken, but my knee is busted, and I will be out of commission for a while. And yes, hobbling around on crutches wearing ski garb makes one feel like a massive stereotype.
However, now that the dust has settled and I am home again, I am realizing that being on crutches is going to have some major impact on my thrifting abilities. I also can't imagine going to the antique shop like this since I will probably knock down everything in sight.
How was your winter break? Any suggestions as to how one can successfully pop some tags while on crutches???
