So yesterday I'm leaving my parking garage heading into the office to start the day, when as I step off the elevator I COMPLETELY trip and fall flat on my face! And no, not graceful-stumble-catch-myself-falling, not wobble-squat-to-my-knees-and-hands....we're talking face to floor splayed out flat. I have bruised knee caps, ribs, lower back and butt. I feel like I was in a car accident and suffer from body-lash. Oh! And here's the best part!! Of course some Deirks Bently look-a-like is standing in the lobby as I smack into the floor and tries to immediately starts yanking me up by the elbow before I even understood what's happened. Now not only am I in pain, but red from embarrassment. And yes to prolong the agony, he walked half a block by my side and then told me to be careful as he took off - "YEAH THANKS!! HOPE I NEVER HAVE TO FACE YOU AGAIN!!"
I think that's the first time I've ever done that in public. Fortunately I had a physical therapy appointment for my back anyway that afternoon and my therapist hooked me up to one of those electric-shock treatment thingys with a warm heating pad...that was a piece of heaven right there.
Alright your turn - have you ever had a nasty & embarrassing fall in public before??
