I though hard about my title. Didn’t want to offend anyone, but I am talking about myself. So, this past Saturday, I was taking my daughter to her “Power of the Pen” writing competition. While they were scoring the essays, they put us all in a theater to watch a movie. Haley and I went to the back so she could sit near her friends. At some point I needed to answer my phone, the closest door was about 8 feet away at the back, so I decided to use that door. Somehow I was now on a 1 and half foot platform in total darkness. I didn’t step up onto anything when I sat down, but I certainly took a swan dive off this mysterious platform I never stepped up on. My gut is always to protect my artificial knees, so I fell on…….my hands. I hit the right one hard enough to bruise it clear to my elbow and open up and bleed. My only saving grace…..it was so dark no one saw me. I eventually had to go and have them x-rayed (I put it off as long as possible, but my bruises were scaring people at work). Fortunately, nothing is broken. I did compress all the bones in cartilage in my left had (not sure what that really means. They used a big long medical name). They put braces on both so they could heal (which I am). Oh, and I found a goose egg on my forehead. I didn’t even realize I hit my head….Duh.
On a positive note, while Haley did not get a trophy, she is moving on to the semifinals at Wittenberg College. I will make sure not to sit in dark theaters….or just watch where I am walking.
So, there has been very little quilting/sewing (actually none), which tends to lead to crankiness on my part. I am thinking that I should be able to get back to it soon. Ugh.

It’s dangerous to walk around in the dark
