For those of you who don't know, I broke my wrist and tore a ligament about 2 weeks ago. I'm in a cast that starts at my knuckles and ends right before my elbow. It's hard to miss, so it starts conversations with random people all over. Of course, this leads to curious questions and stores about their injuries or someone they know's injury.

1. “What did you break?”

Giphy

The #1 question. People's curiosity always gets the best of them, but I'd rather they start guessing about which bone is broken rather than just asking straight up. The cast might be a helpful guide.

2. “Did you know immediately?”

Giphy

Each person is different, but it's usually fairly obvious to tell when something is broken. It does kind of swell and starts to bruise.

3. “How did you break it?”

Giphy

Alright, this one I understand because sometimes there's a really cool story behind it.

4. “Why’d you pick (insert color cast)?”

Giphy

Because I wanted to? Thanks.

5. “What’s it like?”

Giphy

It's annoying and inconvenient if you really want to know. Not to mention incredibly itchy, so sometimes things get stuck.

6. “Have you ever broken a bone before?”

Giphy

I hate this question the most. Like, why does it matter if I've broken something before? That has nothing to do with this current injury.

7. “When did you do it?”

Giphy

Honestly, this one is just a leading question, and goes straight into the next question.

8. “How long is your recovery supposed to be?“

Giphy

Long enough.

9. “How do you shower?”

Giphy

With soap and water. This really isn't any of your business.

10. “Does it hurt?”

Giphy

It's a broken bone. What do you think?

11. “Does it itch?”

Giphy

All. The. Time.

12. “What’s the worst part about it?”

Giphy

I never know how to answer this one. Do you mean what's the worst part of the injury or whats the worst part of having a cast? Please clarify because there are two different answers here.

13. *for arm casts only* “Are you left or right handed?”

Giphy

Alright, valid question. You're gauging to see how inconvenient this injury actually is.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on

I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

www.imdb.com

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
