See you next fall.
I, my friends, fell last night. It was a fall that I almost wish I could have seen. I might have at least been featured on America’s Funniest Videos, and it could possibly have won a prize. It was that graceful.
I’m still trying to figure out exactly how it happened. I was getting off the couch and somehow Molly got right under my feet. I was trying not to step on her, and felt myself start sliding. I was doing all kinds of insane acrobatics trying to avoid landing with all my weight on my dog and squashing her flat. I wrenched my left knee rather badly, and my right knee and both ankles are also sore. I also hurt the heels of my hands where I was bracing myself.
L-squared laughed until she cried, and I was sympathetic with that. As I say, it had to have been absolutely hysterical. And I didn’t squash my dog; I kept asking her last night if she was okay, and she kept reassuring me that she was. So my pain is worth knowing that I didn’t squash my dog.
But it still hurts like a mofo!
The evening was pleasant. The incomparable Izzybella, L-squared, and Jehara came over and we watched bits of the Order of the Phoenix, ate pizza, and had a (to me) extremely embarrassing game of Truth or Truth. After L-squared and Jehara left, Izzy drove me to the drugstore and I got a brace for my ankle and a wrap for my knee. And I’ve got some Biofreeze at work that I’ll apply in a bit, and L-squared brought me a heatwrap for my knee this morning. So I’ll make it. :p
