How ridiculous

I'm very sore tonight. I fell yesterday. When I was getting out of the passenger side of our Traverse, my purse strap on the floor of the vehicle got caught on my shoe. It made me lose my balance as I exited the vehicle, and I fell to the pavement on my right side. I hurt my right arm, shoulder, hip and knee. I'm paying the price for it tonight. Tylenol should help.

This is the dumbest thing ever. I can't believe I tripped from my own purse. My rear end is so sore. Walking hurts, and stairs are even worse. It's so ridiculous! :lol2:

Let me rephrase: someone tried to separate your purse from you, but you managed to hold on. You suffered a fall in the altercation though.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

Ugh.

On the bright side, at least you know how it happened. Half the time I end up with some ache or pain I can’t even tell you what I did to myself and when.

Ouchie!

Hopefully it'll be a short time until all bumps, etc. are all gone.

Remember when Klaus tripped over his purse? That was a hoot.

I have a freak accident every now and then although there is always a concrete reason. Sometimes it takes a while to be peak sore. A friend chipped a front tooth tripping once which was worse than feeling ugly.

Ouch! In most falls the worst pain is knowing you did it. Not so in this one, apparently. Hope it subsides quickly.

:lol2: Nice try. No, this was closer to a Benny Hill skit.

Klaus and his purse ...

Was it the pink flowery one, or the one covered in silver sequins?

Achhh, chipping a tooth would take all the humor out of the picture. That would be more than just a little inconvenience and Tylenol.

True. Not only do I know how it happened, I know i tried to avoid it. I had just moved the strap of the purse away from my feet, or so I thought.

And it really was a funny fall, very slow motion as I tried to free my left foot and regain my balance. I had time to realize my foot was caught, try to shake loose, and then know that it was a lost cause and that I was going down.

The funniest fall was as a teen. I was with my dad in that case. Of course, it was winter, and I got out of the passenger side near a large snow bank. The snow was hard packed, pretty much like ice, and at an angle. The slope and slick surface gave me no traction, and put me on a quick trajectory to the ground.

Somehow I slid under the side of the car, almost up to my waist. It was hard to crawl out because of the slippery and sloped snow bank, so it took some time.

Meanwhile, my dad had walked up the driveway toward the house. When I finally got out and could stand up, he started asking me where I had gone, as if I had just gone for a stroll and finally returned.

The puzzled look on his face when I told him I'd been under the car ... :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

It will make you stronger.
The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

Ouch!! That does sound painful. Glad that it was only a bruise and ache, rather than something more serious.

Yikes! Ayup, I realize I'm lucky to be able to laugh about this. Another time it might not be funny at all.

Well, I'm still doing everything I always do, so nothing has really changed, except I'm slower.

Getting slower seems to be a general long run trend anyway, so I guess nothing has changed. :lol2:
