(Bay Area folks who want to see evidence should come see Awesome Orchestra at Flower Piano on Saturday in the SF Botanical Gardens: http://www.awesomeorchestra.org/all-events/session68 )
Rehearsal, BTW, is for tomorrow's San Francisco Composers' Chamber Orchestra concert: https://news.sfcco.org/2019/04/under-deconstruction/ -- 8 pm, St. Teresa of Avila church, SF. (Nothing of mine on the program, but I'll be playing violin and bassoon... not at the same time.)

Can wear regular shoes for walking around now. Which is a relief, since it is the sort of weather where I barely want to wear shoes much less a walking boot. #injurytooting
And now I get to put my walking boot back on instead of some tightly-laced mid-calf Docs with an orthotic insert, and *not* drive on my sprained foot. (I'd've rescheduled if I could have gotten another testing appointment less than 2 months out.)
According to my mom, I am officially allowed to curse now. You'll be surprised at this both if you've ever heard me talk and if you know that she passed away when I was in college. But when I tried to repeat her choice words as a preschooler she said I wasn't allowed.
Thinking fast, she explained that you're only allowed to use those words after you get your driver's license. Which made sense to me, because she mostly used those words in the car and everyone I knew who cursed also drove.
More things I can successfully do on one leg: make bread. (Including wheeling 15 pounds of cast iron bakeware and bread at 475F across the kitchen in a scooter. I did not say I could *intelligently* do this on one leg, just successfully.) #injurytooting
