And The Prize Goes To....

Gimpy McGimperton!

Yes, it's true. Meghan-the-Klutz has returned in high form. Yesterday, while bringing in a load of binders up the stairwell of our building, I took a fall. But here is the interesting part...I couldn't do it like most people and fall DOWN the stairs. NO! I had to fall UP the stairs! As I fell, I managed to whack my knee in just the right spot so that it could swell up immediately and give me a nice, colorful bruise the size of an apple.

I decided to put my health insurance to use and go see a doc. It was confirmed: severe sprain and bruise of the knee. Treatment: ace wrap and leg immobilizer for two weeks, reevaluation to follow.

I started laughing hysterically when the doctor told me what he was going to put on my leg. The worlst part is that I am supposed to wear this contraption on the OUTSIDE of my pants! My kids are going to make so much fun of me at school...not to mention the fact that I have to ride on an airplane on Friday, go to a wedding on Saturday, and see a bunch of people I haven't seen in 6 months. I am such a dork.

Raise your glasses and have a toast: To the return of Meghan-the-Klutz!

This is a major step in the right direction - IT WASN'T YOUR HEAD THIS TIME!!!!

yikes! I'm glad you are okay though. Maybe now you can board the plane first because of your injury-see, the world is looking up already!

DD is so nasty! :>) Andrea's right. It's a very bad whack but thankfully not a torn ligament or some other permanent injury. Maybe you should reconsider the skiing season pass while you are still A HEAD...? Looking forward to seeing you.
