Dumb Moves...

So... I went out to eat today with the parental units... Good times... family bonding.. loved it.. Left Blondie at the house cause she said.. ain't goin nowhere.. my day off.. sittin my happy ass right here and watchin movies.. So.. I did not take my keys.... Don't ever let me do that again.. cause.. ya know.. of course.. I got back.. and she's gone.. locked the door cause she didn't see my keys layin right there where they lay if I don't have them with me..

So.. no problem.. I have hopped the fence before.. but.. somehow.. today.. must be the meteor shower.. YEAH!! THAT'S IT!!! The meteor shower.. must have off centered my magnetic personality or some other such bullshit.. and all I can say is this.. I am not young enough.. or limber enough.. or.. nubile enough.. to be bouncing over fences and gates anymore.. I got stuck.. head down..LOL.. over the gate.. yes.. i am sure this is a most interesting visual right about now..

So.. whilst hanging upside down thinking.. what to do.. what to do.. I thought.. well.. its only like a foot down. or maybe a foot and a half.. if i hold my one arm out like so.. and then let go of my death grip with the other hand.. I could do like the stunt people do.. and spring off my hand.. and roll.. and land safely in the back yard... What is that saying about the best laid plans???

For one thing.. I still forgot that I am not as quick as I used to be.. or.. and this is a biggie.. not as little as I used to be.... my arm didn't do much but fold when I hit the ground.. and i forgot that fences have those spikey things on top.. which do a little more than shave your legs very closely.. So.. I head butted the ground very nicely.. and sprawled out like a dead worm...

But.. I did get inside.. and went out the front to let them know.. I made it.. very gingerly walking.. Dad looks at me and says.."What took you so long?" I think something came out of my mouth similar to.. "widgets.. feeellssaflurb.. ggaaahhhh... whoosshh.. head.. bang... no harry potter flying skills..." He said.."mmmkay.. long as you're inside now... " No.. he was concerned that I should lie down with ice and heat and take it easy... and has called a couple times to make sure I am not queasy or anything..

All in all.. a good day to be alive in bammy's world.. I have a new heating pad that oohh.. vibrates too!!! and a whole bag of dove's chocolates.. cause those always make ya feel better...

I laughed and I know that's wrong but all I can think is oh man that would have been me and the no harry potter flying skills got me!!!

Hope you are better chocolate always helps.

I can laugh because I've done the same thing.
I've also straddled the fence, forgetting there is a strand of electric fence across the top to keep Betty in the yard. NOT fun.

With a heating pad and chocolate, you can never go wrong!

Last year this time I would have laughed like mad at this, this year, not so much.

Maybe you could leave a long stick outside the fence and pole volt that fence the next time.

Now I know some of my life heros can't fly.
