I ain't too proud to bug.

There was a nice little ice storm yesterday. The streets were okay where I was driving, so I didn't think about the ice much as I began to slowly descend the thirteen stone steps in front of my home. One step was all I needed to take. Zooooooooom! I went down like a Jamaican bobsledder. As I was smashing my tailbone and repeatedly smacking my head, all I could do was wonder what my luge-like slide looked like. But no one was around to witness it. When I finally came to a stop, there was nothing I could do for a few moments having had the wind knocked out of me. Alas! I was not even completely at the bottom. I still had three ice encased steps to maneuver before I could attempt the five that lead into my house.
Bruised and battered, with skinned palms, I slid down the remaining steps on my bottom like a child. Worse even, I had to reach back up the stairs to get my stuff that had strewn itself about like I had been planning a yard sale.
When I finally got inside, I found I could not sit, I could not stand. So I did what any healthy 34 year old will do. I called my mom.
"Ouchie mommy! I fell down."

Yikes! I hope you're OK. Sorry you yard-saled.

Just you wait. In 34 years, your kid's gonna be calling you.

Ouch. I can't even bend over. I am sore. I am scared to go outside. Can someone bring me some cleats?

Thanks DCSC!!

We should have been prepared as we always seem to get the same freaking VDay-week storm every year.

You need those mountain climber shoes, the ones those who climb Mt. Everest use.

You should get one of those big harnesses that people who break their butt-bone have, where they suspend you over the bed...
