It hurts to type this right now.
I had a horrible fall tonight!!!
My first mistake was wearing high heels on a day that I knew there was going to be snow.
My second mistake was running across the street in said heels, trying desperately to cross before an approaching car came.
As I was running, my heels slipped out underneath me and it was like I was watching it in slow motion. My head smashed on the pavement like nothing I have ever felt before. It was the worst fall I have ever experienced. I wish I could say it was only my ego that got bruised.
Three cars who witnessed my embarassment drove by and asked me if I was ok. I nodded my head, fighting tears, as I lay sprawled out on the pavement, in heels and a skirt, my hat lay 3 feet away from me buried in the snow. An approaching car almost ran over it. I sat there and gripped my head for a good minute before trying to get up. I wondered if my head was bleeding. I slumped over to my car and got my car scraper and scraped off the snow and ice from my car. Threw the scraper in the back. Got in. Put the wipers on to try and scrape away the ice on the windshield. Nope. Got back out. Scraped the windshield. Threw the scraper a bit harder into the back. Got back in. Slammed the door.
This about sums up my fall. Oh and did I mention the drive home took me an hour and 10 mins. Apparently Canadians forget how to drive (and walk) in the snow.
So, my dear readers, I am alive and ok (but not dramatic). I am bruised everywhere. My head has a big ‘goose egg’ as Eric calls it, my ass bone has a bruise and bump, and my left arm has a huge bruise and bump (I thought a bone was sticking out of it on my drive home).
God forbid if this ever happens to me when I am 80! I am moving to Florida!!! Jenna will you shack me up?? lol. :P
As Eric said at dinner tonight, Angela: 0, Jack Frost: 1.
We burst out laughing.
And so that brings me to my dinner, which was comforting as any post-winter fall should be.
I had Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti :D
Please see this post for my slow cooker Spaghetti Sauce recipe.
Preparation: I took a medium sized Spaghetti Squash and and pierced holes in it with a knife (I do about 4 on each side). Cook for 6 mins. per side on high in microwave. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Scoop out seeds, then run over the sides with a fork to pull out strands of squash.
Place squash on a plate and serve spaghetti sauce over it.
Serve with warm toasted bread and hummus.
And a tomato and cucumber salad.
And bring a kitty guest.
I also made cupcakes and ate a lot of cake batter and icing. It’s just been one of those days!
Now for a recap of the ‘Who Wore It Better’ fashion poll!
My votes were the following:
I must say I didn’t really love the first dress, I hated the second dress, and the last one I didn’t really love either. Celebs have so many wonderful gowns to choose from…I just don’t understand some of their choices at times! I guess a lot of it is to cause some media attention…
Well, I am going to go finish icing my tailbone, arm, and head. Hopefully Eric will give me a nice rub tonight (on my non-bruised regions).
Angela: 0, Jack Frost: 1.
Oh man, luckily I have Eric to keep that smile on my face.
“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.”
So tell me, did you have an embarassing moment this week?
