Workman's Comp

It should be no surprise that I run around at work like a crazy person. The children are use to it and don't even notice anymore. We had people from central office in our class a couple of weeks ago and when they mentioned something about how I move around so much the kids didn't think it was strange. It's the only way that we can get everything done in a day and normally everything is fine because our classroom runs like a (quick moving) well oiled machine. Friday was no different, but for some dumb reason I decided to put a chair in the middle of the carpet for them to put their papers on (can you guess where this is going?) when they finished their work. Why did I do this? I don't know, it seemed like a good idea at the time. It continued to seem like a good idea right up to the moment when I spun around, flipped up in the air and landed smack on top of the hard plastic chair. It's a plastic chair, how much damage could it do? Let's just say that it took all of my adult strength and self control not to blurt out at the top of my lungs, "HOLY MOOOOOOTHEERRRRRRR FUUUUUUCKKKKKKEERRRRRRRRRR!!!!" Here is how my shin looks today and yes, it is swollen from just below my knee all the way down to my ankle. I texted my co-worker a picture and she said it gave me a cankle, I responded with it gave me a shinkle. I wish I could get workman's comp for my own clumsy stupidity...

Your shin looks alot like my knee when I decided that it would be a good idea to jump over the biology lab table instead of walk around. I had a nasty bruise for over a week! I got no sympathy for my own stupidity.

Ouch!!! I think clumsiness may run in the gay community haha.

I have a huge bruise on my knee because we were playing "touch" football and since I have short arms and my friend is a quick mofo I thought it was a good idea to leap into him. Well we both ended up on the ground and my knee broke my fall. It was pretty bruised. I think we were all amused.

I did get a cankle from two spider bites on my leg though. It was gross.
