Ugh!

Yesterday I was walking into my office and the floor reached up and grabbed me. It grabbed my left foot and held it to the ground so that I rapidly fell forward.

I was going in the exact direction of the corner of my office filing cabinet. Crap.

So, while rapidly falling towards impending doom, I had to rotate my body so that I didn’t grab my head on the corner of said cabinet.

I didn’t hurt my head, but that corner scraped all the way up my for arm and upper arm leaving a huge read welt that has turned into a lovely bruise.

The dood across the hall came over looking concerned… he said “Did I hear an oof?” and I said yea, and told him and he said the same thing. “You were really lucky you didn’t hit your head and knock yourself out!”

Yikes!

    Oh, I’m so sorry that happened but at the same time so glad you didn’t crack your skull.  I knew of a guy that had a strange mishap in his bathroom and wasn’t so lucky, he cracked his head really bad and in fact broke the bone around his eye so it took some real care when he sneezed not to lose his eye…no joke.  It’s always good to hear from you but I wish it were under better circumstances.

    There may be something I can teach you yet.  It is a secret known only to the elders – how to fall on your butt either gracefully or in the most comical manner possible, in neither case hurting yourself seriously.  The secret may involve the writing of haiku.Peace, Doc

    I am so glad yu did not klonk your head.  You can always replace the old knee or hip but the brain is priceless.  Where I work the injured would already have an attorney.  We are always being sued and so far we have been lucky!  Take care of yourself.
