painting my chest

please excuse my lack of capitalization; i'm doing an a la e.e. cummings' writing style.  my right shoulder is healing nicely, but the left hand typing is a work in progress!  i spend a lot of time going back to rehit the space bar... oh well... here we go.

when it's free time off of the ice pack, and i can actually come to my desk, i'm always thinking of fun stuff.  this little chest is painted with black board paint.  it's not a new thing, but i see potential for it's use in my home.

i wanted to do a post, but the thought of moaning and groaning about my living limitations didn't excite me.   unless you're into pain, believe me, it would not satisfy.

i'm one of those people who like organization.  no, not obessive but looking for ideas to enhance production of all my hobbies.  this type of paint could really solve some problems.

now here's the question and feel free to share your thoughts... please... i'm bored!  do i go ahead and paint the chest i have, left handed, or wait 5 more weeks and paint it right handed?   okay, i'm done.


  1. Hi Dixie. I have to say I was disappointed when I saw the picture with this post. I was thought you meant something else......

  2. It depends on whether you want a reminder of the time when you could only write left handed.

  3. hahaha, mike, took reading your comment twice, but i got it. good point!

  4. Dixie!
    "painting my chest" did I note on your 'chest' it said, "computer bits + boobs"? oops "bobs"
    I recommend you wait until you can do it with your right hand. Um, maybe that didn't sound right either! :)

  5. hellllllloooooooooo dixie,

    bazza is being naughty, in the first place. wicked, wicked man. i like your style of writing here. did you say easy cumming? oops. sorry. my hearing isn't going well these days

    not being the cruel type, i think you should paint with whatever part of your anatomy that would cause you the least amount of pain.

    that's my strict medical opinion as a doctor. lol. gosh, i make myself laugh, sometimes. you have a good day now, ya hear?

  6. Dear Dixie,
    Just thought I would give you a little respite from all these lascivious comments. I shall retain my decorum, be a proper English gentleman, and suggset you only use your left hand when painting your, erm, chest (of drawers, that is). Oh dear, now I've mentioned drawers. Well, I did try, at least!
    Very Best Wishes and a quick recovery, your way,

  7. Glad to hear you are doing much better. I would try painting it left handed. But than if things can wait, I would rather wait.:-)


  8. Gary - hahaha. Spelling is not an issue...but on the other hand are four fingers and a thumb :/

  9. Dr. Kelly - hearing problems? Does that mean you read my post out loud?

    Bazza - wicked - no - not with that cute little face on his profile page!?

    Anatomy - hmm, taint's Kelly!

  10. Dear David,
    Oh my goodness(!) at least you tried!
    Most sincerely,

  11. Thank you, Paul. Five more weeks and the shoulder harness is off. Whew!

  12. I really like the idea of blackboard paint! I was curious about what exactly you meant by chest.

  13. CheerfulMonk: black board paint is so handy. Paint a kitchen cabinet door to write the grocery list.
    Chest of drawers?
