Bruise of the Week!

Our panel called for a tie (and for the room to be cleaned)

I figured I can't keep these all to myself and who isn't at least a little fascinated by large bruises? Now, I bruise very easily so when you combine these two factors, a weekly post is born.

In Thai Boxing, kicks are made using the shin as the contact point. For practice, we'll use large pads to kick into. Well, mine are particularly painful and somehow had raving reviews online. I am now sure this company has a factory filled with people on comment boards all day. They feel as if someone made a cement block, put some newspaper around it and then sewed a cover around it. I hear if I use a rolling pin on my shins they'll get tougher, I think I'll just go from camo print to being entirely purple.


  1. Wow! I have never trained in Muay Thai. Those are great bruises. This is why god created fish net stockings, so women can be warriors and commit wonderful acts of fabulousness.

  2. Oh you poor thing! But I'll bet you're rather proud of yourself. Funny what DagneyTaggert said about fishnet stockings. :-)

  3. Haha, I've definitely pulled the fishnet stocking maneuver before! Somehow I don't think it'd translate over very bruised legs though. If only they had camo print stockings (and I liked them.) Sound like the perfect mix of convenient and awful!
