Queen of Freak Accidents

Time for a not-so-serious post...

I sprained my ankle in bed. That's right -- in bed. Apparently I'm a very wild sleeper. A couple of days ago, my left foot somehow got twisted into the sheets. When my alarm went off, I leapt out of bed (as usual), but this time my foot was caught and I found myself hanging head-first from my bed before hitting the floor with a thud. Since then, my ankle has been slightly swollen and very sore.

The odd thing is that this is not the first time I have sprained my ankle this way. I find very creative ways to injure myself. How many people do you know who sprain their ankles in bed (more than once)? Or sprain their knees by playing basketball in flip-flops? Or get gouges in their heads by running into trees?

I've done the tree thing once.

It must have been a hilarious sight to see you hanging down from bed reaching for the alarm.

Let me try to imagine the sight for a moment. Gouged head, dreamy eyes, hair in every direction, leg twisted in sheet, hand reaching out, head down, legs you might have looked like the good witch of Texas.

*rolling on the floor laughing* Quite a sight to imagine. I'm rather a scary sight in the morning (just thought I'd warn you).

That is funny. I gave myself a very pretty purple toe on New Years' Eve morning by walking into a chair (hard) and then less than an hour later walking into the same leg of the same chair with the same toe even harder. One would think I would have learned.

I personally look gorgeous in the morning. Every hair is perfectly in place. I look like I've freshly applied my make-up. My breath smells like a field of wildflowers. I always wake up smiling and chipper, too. Or not. I think I'm pretty much a mess when I get out of bed, but who isn't?

Actually the adage "Birds of one feather fly together" is very true in this instance.

Talking about accidents, just ask Sarah how clumsy she can be at times.

haha, yes, I am very clumsy. But I've never sprained my ankle in bed before, lol, that is still hilarious to me.

Oh boy, it will be interesting when Carey visits, can you imagine all the freak accidents when you combine the queen and the princess. What's the number for 911 again?????

*laughs* Oh dear, Sarah. What a mess we will be! I think I'll sleep on the floor when we're at the motel near Niagara Falls. It's just safer that way. *chuckle* When Jer and I were little, we'd share a bed on family vacations -- until someone got kicked off. Haha. When I went to Colorado Springs a few years back, my travelling companions were smart enough to give me my own bed.

Sarah, I think we should have crowns that say "Princess of Freak Accidents" and "Queen of Freak Accidents" to wear in the airport. LOL
