I have a reputation for being accident prone. That is a polite way of saying that I'm a klutz. I run into things or trip on whatever there is to trip on. But honestly, today WAS NOT MY FAULT. My DH had been kind enough to peel the potatoes for supper but somehow a piece of potato peel fell on the floor and you know who slipped on it and went crashing into the dining room. I flailed my arms in a vain attempt not to fall but fall I did. I landed rather heavily on the back of a chair then onto the floor. My ribs hurt and I have a bruised knee and two fingernails that are turning dark ( now how did THAT happen? Maybe it was the flailing bit.) It hurts to laugh or to take a deep breath so I know I bruised my ribs. Tonight I'll take a painkiller and hopefully sleep. Tomorrow I will sit on the porch and read and not do anything useful. Thanks for listening to my tale of woe.
