Nursing an Injured Coccyx

A couple of weeks ago, I fell on my behind and injured my coccyx, which the doctor says may take months to heal.

It sounds like a dirty word but according to traditional science, it's the vestigial tail left behind when humans no longer had use for a tail, like the appendix and tonsils.

To  creationists, though, it's apparently just an unneeded part  put there as a test of faith to Biblical literalists, in the tradition of fossils.

Whatever the reason for its existence, an injured  coccyx hurts almost as much as a broken rib and I will try to avoid doing it again -- though to be  fair, I didn't do it on purpose this time.
