You see them in wilderness areas. You learn never to do this during hunting season, and only do this at home: put your open hands up facing forward, put your thumbs to your temples, and splay your fingers.

Well, it's a long story (mainly because of all of my excuses!), but the upshot (or downshot) is that I slipped on a really easy rock and the weight of my backpack drove my left shoulder hard into the ground. I've seen two orthopedists so far, and one suggested it might get better with a cortisone shot but it hasn't. So now, at his recommendation, I'm off to a 3rd orthopedist, who is supposedly one of the premier labral tear repair surgeons. I'm really dreading the recovery process from surgery, but it looks inevitable.
