The Further Adventures Of KLUTZPRINCESS

I have documented some of my klutz injuries here before.

Today, I did it again. I was craving steak, and we had just purchased a new George Foreman Grill. We went off to the meat market.

I decided that since Mr Sunshine was home from the hospital, diabetes under pretty good control and since Sorority Girl's car was out of the shop, that I needed to provide a little excitement for a Tuesday morning.

I was walking up the sidewalk at the meat market, got my flip-flop caught in a crack and did a faceplant onto the side of the building. QUIT LAUGHING!!

My very first thought was "Oh crap, I broke my nose". There was so much blood on the sidewalk that it looked like they had slaughtered a cow in front of the building. The nice guys in the meat market brought me wet towels and ice packs. A nice lady customer said I looked like I needed to go to the ER.

As soon as I stopped seeing stars I decided that I didn't need no stinkin' ER and had the hub drive me to my doctor's office. He insisted to the secretary that the doctor needed to come out of her lunch meeting and clean me up and decide if I had a concussion.

The decision was "Maybe". If I start to give non-sensical answers to questions or start acting "weird" I need to go get a CAT Scan. Ummmmm, I'm ALWAYS like that! How will we know??

I did break my nose. It only bleeds when I get up and walk around. I have a note from the doctor to stay out of work for the rest of the week.

OUCH! OUCH! OUCH! What better place to bleed out than a meat market, ha. Take it easy and rest up.

So, how'd the steaks turn out?


Jen on the Edge said...

Oh my gosh!!! I am so glad that you went to the doctor and got that bump checked out.

Rest. Take it easy.

I’m sending good thoughts your way – with my head between my knees. I don’t do blood! Ouch!

You poor thing!

Arnica! Slip some Arnica under your tongue to help you heal.

Oh NO! I'm so sorry for you--how awful!
Any time skin and concrete meet, I cringe.

Nothing to do with your accident, but I wanted to say that, for steak, a good hot skillet works better than the George Forman grill - you're missing out on all of the good bits :)

But, sorry about your accident. I did something similar when I was eight, running to karate practice. I ended up with a 4-inch cut on my chest - bled like a stuck pig, but I didn't even notice until I got to practice and my classmates freaked out and started crying. Looking back on it now, it was kind of funny.

OK, enough medical emergencies down South. I think you should come to the Cape and recover from your injuries! Feel better!

Bless your heart. I suggest applying wine or gin repeatedly. About 6 or 7 inches further south.

Oh that looks nasty! You know my Mom says nobody should wear flip flops (probably because I love them myself) - she thinks they are evil! She herself was wearing slides the other day, came up off the beach - came home and had to call the ambulance for herself as she injured her foot! She's decided that flops of any kind are not for senior ladies!

I hope you got your steak and are recuperating with Bon-bons!

Feel better! Stay cool - I hear it's awfully hot there!

Smart girl to go to your doc instead of the ER. Cheaper for you and for your insurance company (which means cheaper for you in the long run) and you probably got treated faster.

Says the former HMO sales rep. Diaper rash? NOT AN EMERGENCY! Broken toe? NOT AN EMERGENCY!

Apparent heart attack? Loss of consciousness? Possible loss of life or limb? EMERGENCY!

Realy sorry! :|
