brief snapshots in time. memories and thoughts. disorganized and random.

I had hoped M would insist I meet her for the weekend when I talked to her last night. But she didn't. She'll get to see me in a month or so, anyway. And she knows how difficult getting around this weekend on crutches will be. So, I thought, perhaps I won't go.

Then while looking for something else, I found an old Magic 8 Ball, and of course asked it if I should go. It replied, "It is certain." Alright, perhaps I should*.

Then, when I woke up this morning, I decided definitively that I cannot go. My ankle was in excruciating pain. So, I decided I'd have to stay home.

As I was leaving for work, after the pain in my ankle subsided, I read a message which made me think that I should go. Another friend simply stated, I can't wait to see you. That may just be enough.

But, I'm not sure. I'll get to see my other friend next spring, either way. And it would be stupid to go and delay the healing of my ankle, or re-injure it.

Now, I'm back to completely undecided.

So, maybe I'll add all of your opinions to my indecision. Should I fly south to spend three days in the sun listening to good music, getting to see a few great college friends? Or should I play it safe and stay home?

Keep in mind, the festival grounds are huge, and will not be easy to navigate on my crutches. I can't carry much of anything, including luggage or my own drink. And my friends are only going to the festival part of the time, they have family and other obligations to attend to on their visit, as well.

What to do, what to do?

* No, I don't really make any decisions based on a plastic black ball filled with blue water, but the response can be a fun addition to an indecision.

You should go....

you should stay

I vote no. You'll be frustrated when you have a hard time getting around, and if it starts to hurt, there probably won't be a lot of places for you to rest. Next year, you'll be all healed and you can be the life of the party!

Well, RG, you haven't told us what opportunities await you if you stay home.

Even so, I vote go.

If you don't go, can I have your ticket? (g)

oooh I think I've read your blog long enough to know you are a "ramblin' girl" and that you don't like to sit still and that you'd rather be on the move. so GO!! There really is no question in the matter. Even if it's difficult (so was the concert) even if it isn't 100% like it would be if you weren't on crutches, you'll still have an amazing time and you'll get to see your friends (even if you'll see them again soon, see them now!)

I'm the wrong one to ask. I'd go no matter how bad the injury. Sure I'd reget it later, but that doesn't usually stop me.
