23 days to go
Some folks say I am clumsy. Some say I am unlucky. Some say I just don't pay attention. I just say "have you not met me yet? It is well known and incidently, well documented, that crap just seems to happen to me. I have been known to trip over a leaf on the sidewalk and break my toes. I recieved a hug from my husband and broke my ribs. I tripped over a dislpay at the PNE and broke more ribs. Boogie boarding - more cracked ribs. Snowboarding - cracked tailbone. Crossing the street - broken toes. Like I say, crap happens and it just always happens to me.
Today was just another day where I was minding my own business and it happened. I arrived in my office and was removing my 'walking around town' shoes to put on my office pumps. I was holding on the back of my chair as I changed shoes and poof - the chair rolled away from me and I fell backwards banging my head on the corner of my desk. Due to cut-backs in staffing levels, I lay on the floor under my desk in a bit of a daze for about 10 minutes. No one came. Not that I expect it anymore as I am quite capable of handling most small incidents when they befall me. This time, it was just a wee bump and a headache that lasted all day.
Later in the day after I self-medicated, I went for a stroll outside along Granville street. They have been busy along the road. There are now a number of interesting pieces of art gracing the way. I am not an afficiando by any stretch but some of them appear to have been devised by someone seriously taking advantage of a little of our famous BC Bud. I will bring my camera to work tomorrow and take some pictures to share with ya'll.
