• Physically fell? Winter of 2018. I slipped and fell in my own yard. It was spectacular, too! My neighbour saw it happen and asked if I was okay. I'm surprised he didn't laugh.

      In what way was it spectacular? You didn't get hurt though, right?

      I was holding a tote of water, slipped on a patch of ice, did a 180 degree turn in mid-air, threw the water (which went almost perfectly vertical and landed about two feet away), wound up face-up horizontal when I hit the ground, then slid on my back under my own car.

      That does sound pretty spectacular! Wish I'd seen it!

      LOL! brilliant I feel like holding up a points card.
  • True story- I slipped on a banana peel in a busy fast food restaurant a few years ago. Who even brings a banana into a fast food place? I don't remember being physically hurt, but, I'm one of those people that turns bright red when embarrassed.
  • It was many years ago I fell on sidewalk it was night and thankful I didn't get hurt it was a close call
  • Oh. Nearly fell a few days ago in a public place with people around. Not graceful at all. Exact details, can't remember.
  • I crossed a road, mind was elsewhere, the curb had an extra ridge that hooked my foot and crash😈! Luckily I did a breakfall so only grazed my elbow. I felt such an ass! (Err, that's UK English meaning donkey)
  • I was trying to kick my partners butt with my foot, when walking next to him, I got my foot caught in my handbag and hit the deck like a sack of potatoes, he couldn't stop laughing as he pulled me back up.
  • Mine was last year. I actually fell of the biopsy table and sprained my ankle. They put me in a wheelchair and tried to ice and wrap it, but as I tried to push myself out the door of the hospital, the wheelchair hit the threshold, pitched forward and threw me out on the sidewalk! Two men immediately tried to help me up. I told them not to. I get bruises when people pull on me like that. I managed to get myself back in the chair and at that point I just wanted to go home! Turns out I broke my 5th metatarsal.

      LOL!! Sorry Linda, this is hilarious! Goodness me, talk about a comedy of errors. I hope you are ok.
    • Linda Joy
      Always good to make someone laugh! It still hurts from time to time, but at least I don't have to wear the boot anymore!
    • Qagidi
      Ouch! Had you, perhaps, been upsetting the goblins recently? Crazy sequence! Glad you're healing :)

      I imagine God wanted to garner a little more sympathy and meals prepared for me while I put my foot up in bed! haha Its all in how you look at it. But not only does the hurt foot suffer when this sort of thing happens, but the other thigh pulls double duty to compensate. Fortunately I've had experience with such things and navigating them as a single. So I make wise use of my backpack, foods that don't have to be refrigerated, and 2L half full of ice a few drink mixes, my office chair and walker came in handy. You learn after breaking both ankles and now the toe. Been there, done that!
