This week I took a stumble. Not really a stumble – a full out fall and sprawl.
I have a history of being a bit clumsy/accident prone. It usually happens when I’m trying extra hard to be careful.
This time – I just wasn’t paying attention.
I was leaving my appointment with our photographer (Check! A post on that next week – I ran out of days this week!) I sort of slipped on the ice, kind of tripped over the slope of the sidewalk, and may have flat out fallen over my own feet.
I hurt my knee. I hurt my ankle. I quickly gathered my stuff and check to see that no one was staring at me sprawled out on the sidewalk. I was reminded of the time I was running for the subway and ended up sprawled out across the empty platform while the subway doors binged closed and off the passengers went – watching me sprawled out on the floor. This was less embarrassing since no one was there. I got myself to the car and yelled OW!!!
Today my knee is still scrapped, my ankle feels better, but my ass is killing me!
So to celebrate my clumsiness I give you a compilation of falling:
And a possible solution to help me get around without getting hurt (Thanks Lynn this made me smile yesterday!)
