Exsqueeze me

The measure of a true klutz: being able to fall backwards into an impossibly tight spot in such a graceful, semi-slow motion as to look choreographed. Your kid reaches down and gives his mom a hug, lets go, and then she does this dance.

John ran for the icepacks. Richard, from across the house, ran for the noise. And then stood there speechless, not daring to laugh till I gave him the huge silly fake grin that the situation so much needed.

That was last night, and icepacks notwithstanding, I’m typing gingerly. The knitting probably won’t go on strike, but it might stage a slowdown for a day or two to show management who’s boss.

And yes, it was very funny. And no, there are no photos. Thank goodness!

As long as you can still knit – phew!

I did. I finished a UFO that had just needed eight more rows, so it could feel like I got something accomplished: a new design for the next book.

Take a little break. Thank God you did not fall on knitting needles! Actually, I know someone who fell and got wedged between the toilet and the wall, so things could have been worse. As long as it’s only a few bruises a nice rest will take care of everything. Be Well.

I’m so glad it wasn’t more serious. Take care of yourself! At least you got that UFO finished – yay!

Ouch! I’m sorry! (Man, can I relate. I am such a klutz.) Here, I’ve got some icepacks all ready to go for you!

I’m glad you weren’t hurt badly. That’s three of us hurt on the same day right here. sigh

You broke your foot!? What was this, whack-a-knitter day? (Hey, the straps on your shoe/cast thingy match my yarn. Hey Steph, let’s see, does the stuff on your picnic bench match too? We might as well celebrate together!)

It’s very good when we can laugh at ourselves. I have lost track how many clutzy things I have done lately.
