What do you say to someone who falls on the ice not once this winter………but two flippin times?
Nevermind. I know what I would say, and it wouldn’t be very kind.
I falled. Again. Dammit. With an arm full of packages for the post office, my very clear driveway suddenly became the ice slick from hell. I went down so fast……and so hard – that I didn’t have time to scream. No. Time. To. Scream. Do you know how fast that is?
I fell faster than the Speed of Scream, people.
My entire left side of my body- which was the primary impact area, so to speak – and judging by the side-ass bruise I have, I think that’s the part that hit the pavement first – is one big sore, stiff, piece of hurt. Lifting the left arm – not so easy. Drying the hair – oh, my. Knitting – well yesterday it was touch and go because both wrists hurt and were numb – packages again. Today, I can knit if I hold my arms in just the right postion. Same with typing. I seriously think this is why people don’t use directionals when they are driving – that simple motion can produce a wincing groan. (I can’t provide a reason why they don’t signal in the summer – unless they are slipping in the pool water on their tiled pool area or some such thing like that).
Life is all about choices. I hear that. I made the wrong choice. Go through the basement to the garage? Nope. Go outside and walk down 15 steps (glad I didn’t fall THERE again) and walk to the garage? Why sure!
