Style and Grace … and Pain

I have a history of spectacular pratfalls at inopportune times.

Last night, in a move that emphasized once again how right my mother was not to name me Grace, I got my right foot caught in my pants leg while I was getting changed. I lost my balance, and with nothing to brace myself on, I thought I was going to crash land. Got my foot free just in time to keep from killing myself (or at least ending up dramatically bruised), but in doing so I twisted and threw my back way, way out.

Oh, the pain. So I have an unlooked for day off today.

    Wish you had a less painful reason for a day off!

    Yes, I too have caused myself much pain from goofball manuevers such as that. 🙂 Feel better!

    I’ve done that; well, OK, similar things.
    Please take care of yourself, Holly.

    Owtch! Having performed some less than graceful manuevers myself, I can greatly sympathize – my Tae Kwon Do class still remembers my most graceful moment. I hope you feel better. 🙂
