life in and around NYC is insane

Friday, May 22, 2009


I always knew I'd fll in the parking lot at my train station.

I just didn't expect it to happen on a bright, sunny morning.

that parking lot is a nightmare in the middle of winter. after a storm it's a sheet of ice, more suited to the antics of Michelle Kwan or Scott Hamilton than to the average commuter. I am very, very careful when I walk through that lot in the dead of winter.

so what happened today?

I parked in the main lot, as usual. The tracks, platform and station house are across the street from the main lot. I stepped off the curb ot cross the street and felt my ankle twist. next thing I knew, I was face down on the asphalt.

got up, made sure nothig was broken or bleeding, and continued on to the platform.

but I have bruises all over my right side and my knees and wrists hurt -- they took the impact of the fall.

what a way to start a weekend.

Ouch. Were you channeling me today? Take a nice soak in the tub with some epsom salts.

we've been friends for awhile now, some of you was bound to rub off on me.

no, actually I've had falls before.

that nice soak in the tub sure helped, though.

Ouch! Your poor body and not to mention, ego, too. Or didn't anyone see your acrobatic efforts?

no one was around to see no one was around to help me up, either.
