Just Call Me Grace

Dateline: Thursday, May 8, around 4:30 PM

The scene: An office, where, toward the end of a very long and uber-busy day, our heroine (that would be me, because it’s my blog and if I can’t be the heroine of my own blog, then what’s the point!) is whizzing between one desk and another on her speedy chair-on-wheels, as she does many, many times a day. Wheeeeeee!

Sceneus Interruptus: Our heroine, who sometimes gets a little carried away with the whole “wheeeeee” thing, somehow gets her center of gravity not-quite-right and tips the speedy roller-ball-ish chair right on over to the floor. Oopsie.

The Good Part: Her reflexes are pretty darn good and she catches herself before she goes crashing to the floor with the chair.

The Not-So-Good Part: She seems to have twisted funny when she caught herself because damn!…her…um, that is, my back freakin’ hurts today. Sigh… Just call me Grace.

Here’s today’s Daily Art Thang.

    I did that once with a lab chair - think a waist-high seat on wheels - so I’m feeling your pain. Hope you feel better soon!

    Ouch! When I fell on my butt (and tailbone) trying to pull out a sunflower - which was stupid of me, not to balance myself better because - DUH! What did I THINK would happen once the roots gave up their grip???? - and another couple of stupid falls that I can’t remember the reason for - I had a dull but constant back ache for MONTHS. I wondered if it was permanent but I’m finally - knock on wood - back to normal - ordinary creaky, but not a specific sore back. So, the point of this long comment - hopefully it won’t take a long time to heal but don’t be surprised if it does take a long time. The end.
