TweetThere’s no story, just a lot of funny instances I forgot to mention.
1) When we were loading up the car to go on our trip to Schellsburg, PA, Nick was walking behind me and as we approached the car, I heard him yelp a bit. I turned and yelped, “OHHHHH!” as I watched him slip and get balance and them slip again on the snow. It was in slow motion, but in classic movie style, he legs went out from underneath him. In the process of his legs flipping out from under him, he kicked me squarely in the gut and I hunched over with a moan while he landed on his back. And while he struggled to get up, I clutched my recently operated stomach and moaned loudly in pain for both of us.
If our neighbors were watching, they got a good 4 second entertainment show.
2) About 28 hours later, Nick and I are playing Tripoly with Vanessa and Tom. Vanessa, asks me to reach down and grab her sweatshirt, or something, off the floor and pass to her. I reach down and lose my balance, so I try to grab onto the table for steadiness. This is when I realize THE TABLE IS ON WHEELS and provides no stability and only further adds to my off balanced state.
I fall 1.5 feet to the ground. Vanessa said my scream sounded like I was falling from a skyscraper. Get this – in the process of that small fall – I PULLED A CALF MUSCLE FROM STRAINING TO HOLD ONTO THE WHEELING TABLE.
I hobbled for the next two days because of that little stunt.
Fully recovered today.
My friends, when you pull a calf muscle after falling off a chair, that is what you call PATHETIC.
