When I was fifteen years old, or thereabouts, I, just once, managed to crack twenty-one knuckles in one session — that's two per digit, plus an extra one somewhere along the way.
A couple of weeks ago, after more than fifteen years of attempts, I managed to match that record. Shortly afterwards, I got twenty-two — two per finger plus three per thumb.
Today, I hit twenty-three — two per finger, three per thumb, and my right wrist.
This is history in the making, I tell you.
Happy New Year.
