About four years ago, I went flying across my entry in the middle of the night. I didn't bounce and was very bruised.
I decided to test the theory again today...although not intentionally. I went to sit in my computer chair and it decided to roll. I landed on my tail bone. I still don't bounce. I can walk and all my limbs work, but I hurt all over. Guess I am not as young as I want to think.
Falling is always an eye opener. I was in my home both of the last two times I have fallen. Thus no embarassment or bruised ego to deal with. This time it appears there are few bruises. Or none that I can see at least. This was probably the hardest I have fallen. Getting up was not as bad as usual either.
Not sure there is a lesson in this. Not sure there is a moral in this. Just know I have to be much more careful in the future.
Give me a day or two and I will be able to laugh about this.
