Gretchen Vs The Chairs

Yesterday, I sat down on my office chair, sat back too far in it, and flipped over backwards. No, I was not leaning back.

About ten minutes ago, I needed something off the upper shelves of my craft closet. My stool was in the other room, so I stood on the folding chair. This is when I learned that padded Cosco folding chairs are do not have a metal base, but rather a paperboard one. But I only had one foot on it--my other foot was still coming off the ground when I started falling through, and it somehow ended up that I was straddling the back of the chair as I sunk to the ground.

My foot caught a few metal things on the way down and hurts in three places. My other hip is a little disjointed and my back and shoulder feel very sore. Whatever good the chiropractor did for me this morning is now un-done.

This is what I get for making fun of Dowlan's decrepitude.

On a side note, one of my imaginary friends started this blog recently. I LOL'd.

I hope you are fine.
It isn't good to be bruised up.

Originally I came over from Laughing Leah's to visit you. Do you ever go over to visit her? Her kids are my great nieces and nephews.
