‘D-D-D-D-D’

Hey y’all!

I hope y’all had a better weekend than I did.  Well, it wasn’t so much a bad weekend, it was more like an unfortunate event that happened on Saturday.  I took a plunge down a flight of steps.

Remember when we were kids and sliding down the steps was fun?  Yeah, I do to, but I learned it’s only fun when you slide down on purpose.  It’s not so much when you’re walking, and your feet just come right out from under you.  I don’t know what my husband saw where he was behind me, but I’m still laughing about it.

Don’t be too alarmed.  The staircase I fell down is completely carpeted, but fuzzy purple socks didn’t help the situation.  I took one step and down I went… sliding seven steps before I finally managed to stop myself.  The front door was right there, so stopping before I hit that was priority.  My husband was right behind me but powerless or he’d have toppled too making a real mess.  A modern day, real life Jack and Jill nursery rhyme.  As it was, we were heading downstairs for sort of an after-dinner social with my parents.

I had my phone in one hand, a cup of green tea in my other hand, and I was wearing fuzzy purple socks.  I never walk around the house in stocking feet—a habit I got from my maternal grandmother, and for good reason.  I went down so fast…

I should have been able to count the steps as I slid.  My backside certainly felt every step as I went d-d-d-d-d-down.  When I did finally manage to stop, I got up to walk it off.  Ouch.

I’d be lying if I said it didn’t hurt or that I didn’t hurt myself.  I didn’t feel it immediately, but before I went to bed, the left side of my neck felt stiff and I could feel a pulsating heartbeat in my left butt-cheek.  Since the fall, bruising is still minimal and I’m a little stiff in areas, but I’m okay.  Everybody in the house heard it.  Our cats came running and my parents were right there in the living room; they just couldn’t see me because I was hidden on the other side of the banistered staircase wall.

Y’all, I’m still laughing about it!

As always, thank you for reading and for your support.
