Wishing I had a big butt

Right now I am wishing I had a big butt.  Why?  Because if I did, my butt might not be so sore.  This morning as I went out to clean the freezing rain off my car I slipped on my front sidewalk and down I went, landing on my bony butt.  My flailing hands prevented my head from hitting the cement too hard, but now my left wrist is sore too.  I guess the good news is I did not hurt my back….

The worst part was, my accident could have been avoided.  I had given myself plenty of time to get to my dentist appointment just in case the roads were bad.  The forecast had predicted freezing rain, but when I looked out my window, the sidewalk appeared to be just wet and not icy.  I also should have chosen safety over fashion; I was wearing my cute boots with very little tread on them, much better suited for bare sidewalks.


I am hoping that by tomorrow I will feel better, as I am tired of sitting (more like standing or lying) around doing nothing all day.

  1. Just so you know, it still hurts if you have a big butt. If anything there is more of it to feel the hurt. Sorry you are hurting. Hope you feel better soon. Libby

  3. Not looking forward to winter here… I’ve had many face to face interactions with ice! I’m glad you didn’t hurt your back. I hear you about the cabin fever. Need some of those sunny days back!

  4. […] much prefer snow to freezing rain, which can be quite dangerous, as I found out recently when I fell and bruised my tailbone.  Almost three weeks later I can still feel it if I move too quickly or […]
