Clumsy is a huge understatement




Yep. That was me last night. 

Falling down the stairs. 


No lie, I have become a Falling-down-the-stairs Aficionado. 

We were at a friend's, and they have wooden stairs. My silly shoes have absolutely no traction, and I just slipped and fell all the way down. People from outside heard it and came running in. The wind was completely knocked out of me. I seriously thought I broke my tailbone. 

I didn't know which hurt worse - my tailbone or my pride. I was so embarrassed. 

Mr. Ruby just sat with me until I mustered up the strength to get up. Then, I passed out in the bathroom. 

Haha. If you know me...this doesn't surprise you at all. I fall all the time, and I actually just fell down our stairs about a year ago. I woke up the next morning and felt like I had been in a back alley fight. So this is no new thing.

Just to show you how hard I hit...take a little looksie below. (I swear you can't see my rear in these pics...although my entire left cheek is black and blue also).

Oh, you poor thing!! I just hate that for you! I hope it gets to feeling better soon. If it helps your pride, I have run smack into a glass screen door on my way into a party....took everything I had in me not run back to the car and bawl my eyes out all the way home!

Ouch! Those bruises always hurt the most! I ran into a desk in class once and had one that size on my thigh. Took forever to fade!

I have done that before! I'm clumsy too, so I'm usually covered in bruises & their usually somewhere on my upper thigh too.
