The bruise on my lower back looks like a big fleshy nebula. It’s a lovely cloud of mottled purple and blue, with rosy wisps of broken blood vessels. When I got thrown from that car into the dumpster it certainly didn’t feel great, but I don’t appear to have any serious damage aside from this huge Exploder-induced bruise.
I think I’ll work out today, try to get these kinks out of my neck.
You know, I’m looking at my spare costume in the light of day, and my shoulder cape does look awfully purple. My current costume is a really deep masculine blue, but this color… Jesus, what was I thinking? What superhero wears purple?
