As you can see, if you look really carefully, the upper right side of my right thumbnail (pictured here) is a little bit purple. This was the only injury sustained when I fell off my horse during my lesson today (we were cantering; something in the melting snow outside the arena spooked her). No smashed bones, no concussion, not even a muscle tweak (as far as I can tell right now, although after tomorrow morning's flight to Texas, who knows). My pants were dirty, though, even on the inside.
And my thumb does hurt.
Note: Ian, in his comment (see below), makes an excellent point about the inside of my pants. They were dirty with DIRT, arena DIRT. That is all.
