So I pull into work at the same time as one of my co-workers (that I actually like). I decide to wait for her to park so we can walk in together.
As we cross the parking lot and are about to step onto the main path, something absolutely horrible and unbelievable happens. My right foot steps on some type of gravel rock the size of the grand canyon ... and since I can't talk and walk at the same time ... I didn't notice it. I knew I was going down when I got that "Uh oh" feeling in the pit of my stomach. Sure enough, in super-slow-motion I manage to twist so I don't land on my hands and land instead on my left butt cheek and knee.
Queue the flaming red face, my gaze dancing around rapidly to see if I catch any curtains being nudged aside as I am sure the entire neighborhood just saw me tumble and fall!
Thankfully my coworker didn't laugh in my face. She helped me up, picked up the offensive rock and tossed it into nearby bushes. Then she proceeded to tell me about the time she broke both wrists ... at the same time. See why she's one of my favorites?
Got inside with only a slight limp and proceeded to tell my best friend, who also works right next to me, the whole ordeal. First thing she does? Bursts out laughing. Not just tiny giggles ... no, full blown hyena laugh! Of course, I may have been telling the story in a way to get her to laugh, but that's NOT the point.
Queue coworker who witnessed the ordeal coming down the hall. I tell her how my best friend just burst out laughing at my horrific experience, and she shakes her head at her in shame. Win for me! LOL
In all seriousness though, I am not hurt. My knee is a little bruised but another favorite coworker sneaked her way downstairs and got me some ice, which was very nice of her. I iced it for about half an hour and now it's feeling much better.
But yeah, it always makes me laugh how my first reaction is never "Am I okay?" but "Okay, who the hell just saw me fall like that? Must hunt them down and silence them!" ha-ha.
So that was the start of my day ... How has yours been? Lol
I am just very happy I have the next two days off work. What's sad is that I am very excited to play the new World of Warcraft expansion (which is why I took the time off... yes, I am a huge nerd). I managed to hit level 56 on my Hunter yesterday. I hope to get the last 4 levels today so I can boost her before the expansion. I want to concentrate on my main, a paladin, the next four days and try to get her as close to level 100 as possible. Oh yeah I gotta post the screen cap of her transmog gear ... Ill do that later today.
