Childhood Injuries

A friend and I were walking out of the office today to the parking lot to leave to the Braves game where other co-workers were for tailgating and a great game.

As we came around the corner, a guy jumped out and struggled with her for her purse. I dove at his knees and tackled him to the ground while she grabbed her purse and beat the crap out of him.

Well, that's at least what I told everyone when I got to the game and everyone asked me about my knee.

What really happened....I couldn't remember where I parked (must be hereditary, huh Bou). So when I realized we were in the wrong aisle, I turned and immediately walked to the next aisle and walked right into one of those concrete parking stopper thingy's, tripped, fell forward, skinned my knee and toe nails and then rolled.

I laughed. She was worried and proceeded to go after everything that spilled out of my purse.

I got to thinking and I think the last time I skinned my knee must have been in junior high on my skateboard. Let me tell you, it is a more difficult fall as an adult.

And all I kept thinking today was to keep bending my knee as I remember my knee getting stiff when I was younger and it really sucking!

OK, so this is what I want to know, since I've not had one in 30 years as well... do you still freak out when its time to pull off the bandaid? I always thought that was the worst part!

As for losing the car... i have three little boys who tell me where I parked now. WTF am I going to do when they leave home? Taking teh bus may be an option...

Owwww! Of course when I walk into one of those things I just break a toe... *sigh* Hope it doesn't get too stiff on you.

Losing the car is a primary fear of mine. I don't go too many new places. So the places I go often I always park in the same spot if I can. Naturally I find a place far from the door (always bound to be spots far out)... but at games and stuff... Help!

Are you sure you didn't bump your head, too? I mean, that's one explanation for posting this story three times...

The other explanation involves a bit of early-onset senility. ;P

My mom has a bubble wrap suit I'm sure she would loan you. We made her one after she tripped over one of those same thingies and ended up with a blackeye (we made her a bubblewrap hat too).
