Opposable thumbs

Current status: mammal without opposable thumb. Sprained (or strained, whatever yanks your medical chain) the muscles that attach my thumb to the rest of my hand. The cold makes it turns me into one of those painful Delhiites who brag about the winter ('at least we have seasons') in summer and then use it to garner sympathy when it actually arrives.

Back to the lack of opposables. I can't change gears in my car (good thing I rarely drive, then), I can't open a jar, I can't change channels (yes I can, don't know why I said that), I can't do the dishes, I can't knit or play the saxophone. I can't fly a Sukhoi.

Bummer. I'm cold.
