How To Bust Your @$$

Five easy steps:

1. Place towel flat on top of hardwood floor.
2. Run on top of it.
3. Slip.
4. Go flying in the air.
5. Slam down onto the ground with the weight of a ton of bricks thrown from the empire state building.

Thank the Lord that I have all this protective winter flubber surrounding my bones or else I would be in the hospital right now.

Ooouch!! Hope you are allright now!? I know the feeling, I`ve tried it on both slippery icy frontdoorsteps and several times indoors...It`s almost better to slip (trip? fall? -sorry, I`m Norwegian!) in public spaces, because you get too embarassed to feel the pain!! Hehe! Take care!

You know if you can get to a homeopathic pharmacy or order it online you could take one Arnica 10m every day for 3 days. (10m's the potency but if you can only get a 200c then you can take it twice a day for a bit longer). It's magic. Saved my coccyx a few times! Get better soon x

When I was much younger, I was carrying sleeping bags from upstairs to downstairs. I decided to take two at a time, by putting my arms through the center of the roll. Upon reaching the staircase, I couldn't see properly due to the bulk, and missed the first step. I went down the whole flight of stairs face first, sliding on the sleeping bag rolls on my arms. It only took two or three steps before I realized I'd be fine, and that it was actually really fun. I almost went back up and did it again, but thought better of it.

Sorry your run-in with gravity wasn't more pleasant, but glad you're well!

ha! Thanks for sharing! I am no stranger to going flying down the stairs. I recall 2 times in my semi-adult life and once my mother told me I went flying down the stairs in my walker when I was a baby. Do you think I can sue them retroactively for child endangerment? hmm...
