Note to self

Dear almost-42-year-old-body,

I would appreciate it if you would stop falling down.

I understand that the bathtub is slippery, so I’ll excuse that one (just try not to crack your head open when no one is home, m’kay?). But did you have to have your ankle go out from under you for no apparent reason, leaving you to crash to the parking lot asphalt like you’d just had a seizure of some kind? And in front of several co-workers and an oncoming car?? Pardon me, but that’s just stupid.

Thanks for listening. Hey, at least you still have your hearing… for now…

    Heck, you don’t even have to be an old fart for that to happen. I’ve had bad ankles since I was in junior high school and sprained both of them within a month of each other. I will be walking along and have an ankle twist for no apparent reason any old time.

    In fact, the last time it happened was when we were on our little weekend getaway to NYC a couple of months ago. I was all dressed up in my good suit, on our way to a swankola restaurant and fell very hard. I ruined my best pair of shoes and got my suit filthy. But since I’ve been doing it for the last 26 years, I didn’t chalk it up to encroaching geezerhood. YMMV, obviously.

    I’m fine. Nothing hurt but my pride. Never miss a good opportunity to laugh and point.

    Chari: Bite me. :p

    Brian: Heh. You spaz. 😉

    It always makes me sad when you point out how very, very, very old you are. Kills the mood, you see.

    I only fall down when I trip over my enormous man-feet. But I don’t mind, because you know what they say about people with big feet, dontcha?

    They wear big shoes.

    Ah, ’tis true, ’tis true!

    I think Solly must be pining for the days of Chevy-Chase-doing-Gerald-Ford…..

    Which still means you’re getting old!

    You’re Solonor, and I’m not!

    Hell…my ankle’s been doing that since my late teens. But I’ve had grey hairs since my early 20s, too.

    You alright?
