Since I didn’t have my
camera in hand as I fell
down the stairs yesterday, there
won’t be any subjective photos
to share with you, unless you
count these falling leaves.
[I guess #4 is going to haunt me
forever.] You don’t want to see
the bruise that I can feel starting
to bloom on my hip as I took
a flying leap.
Last few steps, Bootsie meowing for dinner, dark hallway, and flop down I went. Falling on my hip, and opposite arm…nothing broken, I stayed down for a few minutes this time to make sure. I think it really shook me up, made me realize that not paying attention for a second can mean whoops…down she goes.
Is this going to be my life when I get really old, the elderly lady in bed #4 with the broken hip?
“Well I guess at 100 I would learn to be a little more careful, did you bring any treaties to kill the pain dearie,” I would ask my niece?
And here I was thinking that we should remove that ugly blue carpet off of the stairs, and replace them all with a hardwood….ouch that would have hurt.
I’ve got a history of being rather ungainly at times, graduation day ceremonies two times falling down the stairs in front of everyone, and they had the nerve to laugh, this wasn’t a comedy routine. Our wedding, hugged my Dad, and knocked the entire 8 candle, candelabras over with my bouquet by accident, candle wax all over his legs, and after they picked it up, I did it all over again. But I made it down the aisle without falling…
I’ve fallen down stairs, fallen up stairs, [that one is harder], tripped over curbs, flat cement, knocked over displays, and banged my head more then once…
Life is a school of hard knocks, oh did you fall down again?
What about you, graceful or ungainly? Are you one to take a falling leap?
