Fall From Grace...or Fall With Grace?

I’m wide awake. It’s 4:32 a.m. – mountain time. I think I took my vitamins tonight and it jacked me up.

Dang it.

Or, it could be that I’m sore.

Sore from my fall from grace.

Seriously.

I busted my butt today, walking across the street at Broadway and some other freakin’ street. ("Oh, no!" you say. "You diiiiiidn't!") (Oh, yes, I did.) And I hit the pavement - the one with the trolley rails built in. I stepped into a hole, and lost my balance. Landed on the knee that was shattered in 1990, put back together with a huge screw. Feels great, today, believe me.

Embarrassing, that fall. My guys acted like it didn’t even happen, for which I will be forever grateful. (Well, right after they made sure I was okay.)

But, stuff happens.

Most always, to me.

It’s never boring around here!

That sounds painful
hope you feel better today...
but i got to admit....
I'd have laugh if I'd seen it....:)

Pam said...

Ouch. Man, onto the rail? That's gonna leave a mark! Sorry about the fall. It always seems to happen to me when I am really trying to be careful-like my graceful fall in San Miguel last year. Hope you are better today.

Ow, Ow, OWWWW! On that rail???

Good guys for assisting you and letting you know you're still graceful and gorgeous, because it was the evil rail that rose up and pulled you down ;-)

Jeff said...

Are you sure you weren' under the influence of that "Rocky Mountain High" you mentioned in that last post?

Seriously, Janie, hope you're feeling better soon!

Janie said...

Keeper - I laughed myself! I bet it was spectacular.

Pam - I'm fine, just s.l.e.e.p.y.

Chatelaine - Yup. On the rail. And they are great guys.

Jeff - At this poing, I'm doing well - no aftereffects thus far, thank God!

Janie, I'm pretty sure I told you to be careful!

I'm praying that your bruised body and pride heal very quickly.

Maybe someone can give your knee a magic kiss like Mom used to do?

OUCH!!

Sounds like the time I ate pavement coming out of my Hubby's Holiday party with all his co-workers there watching. OMG I thought I was going to die. It was a bad fall but I was beyond embarassed. I think my ego was bruised more than my body.

Janie said...

Oh, Amy. Now that was probably painful...and embarrassing. You were probably dressed to the nines, as well.

Thanks for commisserating with me.

I need that! ;)

Gretchen said...

OUCH! Hope you're better soon and no worse for the fall from grace. :)

You didn't wear your tennis shoes like Mr Marketer said, did you? You were in your 6 inch stilettos, looking all "Sex and the City" cute, weren't you? I know....

Hey, ya need any home health? I can so hook you up!

Are you okay tho? I would hate to be making fun of you if you were really injured and all.

HOBO said...

Get well soon.

Janie said...

Gretchen - I'm fine, really. I feel great. Have a really cute bruise on my leg, but....

Jill - I need home health, yes I do. Does home health babysit dogs? Exercise them? Plant birds for them? And as to Sex In the City, ummmmm. Yeah. Except I'm missing a couple of things...like thinness and youth.

Hobo - Thanks, I appreciate it!

Oh No! You sound about as graceful as me, lol. Hope you didn't bruise too badly and thank Heaven nothing was broken!

Actually, you have no idea how lucky you are. A friend of mine was in NYC walking in spike heels with her team/crew and got one of her heels stuck in one of those grates that lead to underground delivery doors. At 40, she broke her kneecap and her hip. But get this... she was skinny as a rail. No Padding. It was horrible. So, your Angel was watching over you, my friend. Not to mention some meat on yer bones looking out for you. I'm just saying...

That sounds like something I would do!
