The Agony Of Defeat

I am not graceful. In fact, I am probably related, somehow, to the athlete on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, who for the last 30 years has been “The Agony of Defeat“! I can be walking down the street, and simply trip over nothing, and land on my face. Therefore, today should not have surprised me nearly as much as it did.
I’d gone back into the guest room to retrieve a cable for my laptop, when Hubby asked me to get him a fresh cup of coffee. I picked up his cup, half filled with cold coffee and started towards the door. I paused to climb over the doggy gate, and yes, that is when it happened.
(Slow motion)
I caught my foot and began to fall. The cup went up, as I started going down. The cold coffee spurted out of the cup, onto the wall, the floor and on me! The gate crashed! Dogs ran in different directions and when all was said and done, a new bruise appeared, the walls got a coffee wash and I didn’t have to worry about emptying the cup of coffee in the sink before I filled it with fresh, hot coffee. After, I did not put the doggy gate back up. Hubby will just have to figure out how to keep the beasts off of him. It’s simply too dangerous for me.

  1. I can just picture the whole thing! LOL!!! But I am glad you are okay! It would not be a good idea for you to end up in a cast and not be able to take care of hubby.

  2. Hi Mom,
    Sorry to hear about your fall, though there is a little bit of comedy in it, by the way you tell the story. Hope you and Jack were able to have a nice and relaxing weekend. Mine was full and busy. I saw Gram, and she said to pass along a hello.
    Lots of Love,
