Falling on some d@#$ ice!

Dear Int-netz,

If you get an ice storm and need to take your dog out for a walk do not think yourself cute in your red pea coat, boots, scarf and gloves. The FATES will know you are out there getting all jiggy with it and you will go to take a step on the curb AND YOU WILL FALL!!!! Then you may cry a bit. While you are sitting there sniffling and feeling very sorry for yourself and wondering if your hubby will feel bad enough to go and buy you some Feel Better Soon Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream you will look up and notice a van full of people who are pointing and laughing at you.

You may feel like pointing a "certain" finger at them but you must remember you are a lady and there will be no finger pointing. Then you will hobble back into your house where you will wake up your hubby so he can kiss your boo-boo on your elbow.

This concludes my message.

I've been there! Only there was just one man laughing at me. Hope you don't end up with a big bruise on your butt like I did.

Hope nothing but your pride was seriously hurt. I remember slipping on the curbing near the grocery store and falling. First thing I did was look around to see if anyone saw. Yes, a couple of men in a pickup stopped at the stop sign saw me, but at least they didn't laugh, and were concerned enough that they stayed stopped at the sign until they saw me get up under my own steam, pick up my groceries and get into my car. My butt hurt, my head hurt were I banged it on the curb when I landed, I was embarrassed, but I lived to tell about it. :-) And so did you.
