I don’t think I realized how different and dangerous ice could be in comparison to snow……until the other day.
Business as usual, rushing around the apartment in the morning getting ready for work. Brushing my teeth, straightening the hair, gathering my gloves and hat, buttoning the coat, keys in hand, on the way to the bus stop with one minute to spare. I knew there was still some ice left over from the earlier days, so down the steps I went, cautiously looking down to avoid any apparent “hot zones” and well, one thing led to another and the unavoidable took over. I took one step forward and the leg kept going, while the other flew up in the air and wouldn’t you know, I landed straight on my behind with some sort of mini-whiplash in effect. Big OUCH! Dissecting my history of previous falls, I came to the realization that when you take a stumble and there’s an audience, it’s much easier to get teary-eyed and seek empathy, but when you’re all alone and there’s no one to lend a helping hand, you dust yourself off and wabble your way towards the original destination. That my friends, is what took place on that fine and icy morning. I had a bus to catch and work to get to so I got up, took note of the pain on mi bum and hand, and basically pretended that nothing had ever happened! Oh, and I checked to make sure that no one at the bus stop saw me take the fall, in case you were wondering.
For more uplifting news, love this dress and was so happy to finally wear it for the first time (not wearing it the day of the “incident”) 🙂
