Only I can hurt myself this much.

So I was browsing the art on the graphic novel when I hit the splash page of the ending. I screamed in horror and my own stupidity. The clerk laughed and shook his head, Arturo made a nice quip which I currently can't remember as I'm a little woozy from a vicodin and a double shot of Jack & Coke, to be explained-now.
So the treatment of a sprain is to ice the damn thing down 3 times a day until the inflammation goes away at which point you alternate heat and cold to speed up the healing process. I know this, I've consoled people asking at the pharmacy to do this. So why didn't I do this? I figured why wait for the inflammation to go down and plunkered my freshly injured foot into hot relaxing water for 30 minutes, note that the maximum time on any hot/cold treatment is 10-15 minutes per sitting.
After the water started to cool, I removed my foot. Which screamed in protest to the cool air and movement as a foot in heat is full of blood and *EVERY* cell screams in pain. I agonize and bang my head at my own stupidity as I wait for the blood to flow out and the pain to subside. After 10 minutes of the worst pain I've ever experienced, I hit the cabinet for a pain pill and the fridge for a Jack & Coke. The foot has finally stopped throbbing. I can barely walk still. Dumb, Dumb, DUMB.

I'm confused as to how your injured foot and the comic shop are related...

But man, didn't know you were hurt. Sorry to hear that.

Jack LaLanne over here got a little over-zealous at the gym, that's how.

... so... his injured foot and the comic shop are related because you two went to the gym first, then dropped by the comic shop on your way home after he injured himself?

At first glance, your post seemed to answer the question of HOW Ny got injured which wasn't asked.

Both were meant as examples where his being dumb resulted in injury. The comic shop is the mental kind. He did mention he was all Coke'ed up so you can't really blame him for not laying it out properly.
