I hurt myself at work today :-(
I can't believe I am telling you this, but alas I must have absolutely no pride left, and well it is a good story. (Side note: I may have shared this already, if I have I'm sorry but it's worth repeating. I have a theory that you should only do things for one of two reasons-#1 A free t-shirt #2 A kick-ass story. If you don't get either one of them, you really need to reevaluate.) Anyway, back on track. Today I hurt myself at work. My knee is currently all bandaged up with an ice pack and I am propped up on pillows on the couch. What happened you ask? How did I inflict this horrible injury? [insert taking a brave deep breath] Walking people, I hurt myself walking. Honest, and yes, you may laugh at me and leave snarky comments if you feel moved to do so. I'm a big girl, I can take it. Speaking of taking (like the segway?), I was taking the kids to the bus area and while I was walking them all of a sudden my knee felt all weak and achey. By the time car duty had ended and I was walking (or rather limping) to the office it was hurting like a mo-fo. Here's the real issue, I'm pissed. Not that I hurt myself (which is annoying don't get me wrong), but that I hurt myself walking in sneakers...it wasn't like I was even wearing heels or anything that would add instability to my gait. No people, I was wearing sneakers and hurt myself walking, walking. [If you stop reading my blog after this embarrassing post I will completely understand.] Later tonight while I was resting my sports injury (do you like the spin control?) I was talking with my friend S who was trying to cheer me up and she quickly reminded me this would not have happened if I walked right foot, left foot (I always walk left foot, right foot which she thinks is weird. Readers, which foot do you start with when you are walking? I'm just curious if there is anyone out there in my camp.) So yeah, I hurt myself walking...walking people...walking. Seriously, I thought I mastered this around 10 months old? Apparently not.
