Can’t make this stuff up (II)

April 30, 2009 at 4:02 pm (Uncategorized)

Last night, on my way out of a work event at an artist’s home, I fell down most of a flight of stairs. In those few seconds while time slowed down, I went from My this is going to be embarassing! to Holy Hell I’m going down headfirst. Abort! Abort! And then I passed out. Twice.

I’m banged up and shaken more than truly injured, but I’m sick of the close calls. That accident would have been so much worse had I been hit closer to the driver’s side door* and this fall brought me down three times as many stairs as the one that put The Head Injury in a drug-induced coma. If this is the Universe’s way of telling me that I should shut up about turning 29, then message received. At this point I’ll be happy to MAKE IT to Saturday.

*Don’t let your car pick a fight with the front end of a police car. Theirs are MADE for ramming. Yours will lose.


Dear Powers That Be,

Pleeeeeeaaaaaaase let there not be a third post with this title. Ever.

I refuse to create a tag.

Most sincerely,

    If it makes you feel any better, I fell UP a flight of stairs earlier this week.

    I’ve never been so anxious to have my birthday week (yes, I get a week, that’s the rule) over!

    And WendyB? I nearly tripped going up a flight of stairs yesterday, so I definitely understand how it can happen.
