I feel like a total horse's ass right now...

...Okay ladies, if you don't know already that rubber-soled shoes catch on linolium tiles, let this be your lesson:



I decided I needed some excitement in my life and fell today at work!



Of course, as is my style, I couldn't do this in some dramatic fashion, like, oh, lunging to catch a falling cat out of a tree, or pushing someone out of the way of a large stack of falling boxes...

So much for my acting career!

Oh, no! I felt I just had to trip in my shoes on the way to the bathroom and fall chin-first into the linolium tile.

I promise to post pics later tonight (watch for the update here on this post) - the nice doctor was kind enough to take a pic on my cell phone (his idea, actually) of the gash before he stitched it closed. I now have 3 stitches on my chin-line, and a lovely eye-gawking band-aid over it.

What an ass!

Well, hey! The one good thing is that at least I am laughing about it! If this has been a few months ago, I probably would have been in tears!

Ouch! That must have hurt something fierce! I would tell everyone it happened while you were skydiving - your chute didn't open but you managed to drop and roll when you hit the ground and only banged your chin a bit! That sounds much more dramatic.

Ouch - you remember my pictures from stumbling on a wet floor into a jagged rock wall? We should compare LOL. Take care of yourself.
