I was talking to a friend the other day and she said, “you never write anymore!”
“I’m starting to write more…the Pennies thing, that’s new.”
She says, “No, I mean, on your BLOG!”
“ohhhh, that. Okay.”
So, I’ll give it a whirl.
I’ve long suspected that I am out of synch with the rest of the universe. The earth rotates on it’s axis and the sun,
moon and planets each do their calculated-predictable thing. But as for me, I’m a half step out of sync with the rest
of the Universe. I’m sure of it.
Today was a perfect example.
As I was heading out to work this morning, in the rain, I thought I should bring the trash can back in off the street.
I started down the driveway and before long, I was extended, body-length, down the driveway. My foot just sort of slid
right out from under me and in slow motion, much to my horror, I was headed for the splits. Thankfully, God intervened
and I stopped short of the full extension!
Still, there I was in a big ole’ mess in the rain on the driveway. My sweet neighbor was out for her daily walk (in the rain, no lie) and stopped to help me. I’m not even quite sure how she managed to get me back upright, but I am grateful that she did.
She said, “are you hurt?”
Me: “My ankle got twisted, and well, so did my knee, but mostly I fell on my ego (my bottom) so I should be fine!”
I poured myself in to the car one big soaking-wet mess. Sigh.
Then, not even 5 minutes down the road, I threw up in the car.
The driver in the car behind me whips out around me and as she passes, she flips me off. Apparently my regurgitating got
in the way of her speedy momentum.
When I walked in the door at work, well, excuse me, actually, as I shuffled in the door at work I told a co-worker that I was doing the Tim Conway shuffle. I was thankful she knew, first, who Tim Conway is, and secondly, exactly what I meant about the walk!
So I am mostly sure that I am out of sorts with the rest of the world today! I’m not lying about any of it.
Where do I go from here?
I thought about the title of today’s planned Warm and Fuzzy, “When A Friend Is Experiencing Turbulence”! I can relate to my own warm and fuzzy even more now!
I’ve just taken some Advil for the impending pain and settled in the air chair for what is hopefully an uneventful air shift.
Just in case, I’ve fastened my seatbelt in case there is more turbulence!
I’ve checked for additional exits and they seem to be in front of me and not at the rear of the aircraft, and I am mostly sure the oxygen masks will not drop mid airshift today, in the event of depressurization in the air studio! If that happens, I think we are all in trouble!
I hope you have a safe flight, er, day. I am hoping mine improves with each minute! It has to, doesn’t it?!
