I’ve fallen and i can’t get up!
I literally couldn’t get up. Well, let me explain! I was running. I was engaged in a very animated conversation about what time i need to leave my house so that i can meet my friends at exactly the right time. We determined i need to exit my apartment at 6.32am. With that in mind, the next thing i knew i was falling. Down! I must have either tripped on a board, a nail in the board or my own two feet. I fell first on my right elbow, then plopped down hard on my left knee. Then, (and you will appreciate this if you are a baseball fan) i slid into home base. Not literally, of course silly…just in my rather strange mind. I think i did the best slide EVER!!!
My friend who is a doctor quickly accessed the situation, first probing my elbow, then the knee all the while i was on the floor in some sort of strange twisted position. So, here i am on the floor being complimented on how beautiful my fall was. A work of sheer genius, i was told. Very graceful, my other friend said. I am pretty sure, they were dying to laugh or at least giggle just a bit. They didn’t.
So, i slowly, carefully, got up and started running again. It is not pretty folks. I won’t be posting photos of the knee for two reasons.
1) My knee somehow looks like my boob when i take a photo of it.
2) I forgot to shave my legs and the knee area is indeed hairy! Ugh so i just thought of something…my knee that looks like my boob has hair on it.!!!
Oh, and when i fell the very first thing i did going down, is stop my Seth! My garmin! Hey, i didn’t want to mess up my time guys!! When i did this, my friend said “I knew you were OK”!!
