Son of Arm Candy

I had intended to do a before and after photo on the arm candy post I put up a few days back. Show the bruise, work it for a couple days with balur, then reveal how it had healed right up, through the miracle of Javanese goop applied with vigor.

Thing is, if you go back to class and bang it again before it heals right up completely? It, uh, doesn't look better.

So this is what you get ...

I don't know what "Javanese goop" is, but after my 50 shows in 48 days getting powerbombed and backdropped, I became a firm supporter of arnica. Great for bruises, especially. Are you familiar?
