physics in action

Rain => wet sidewalks

Wet sidewalks => wet shoes

Wet shoes + tile floor + rounding corner too fast = KERTHUMP

Stacey + KERTHUMP = blushing + cursing + bruising + pain

[But on the plus side, I can empirically state that gravity is still in effect, at least in the local area.]

02/23/2009 UPDATE: the bruise on my leg is lovely...very dark purple, about 4" around. Apparently I banged my head, because there is a tender spot on my scalp and my left eye has a faint bruise under it. Ankle and knee are doing better; there is a sharp pain in my left upper arm when I put pressure on my elbow, so I'm keeping an eye on that one.

Needless to say, I am very, very respectful of tile floors now... >.<

Hope you're not hurt, but I had to laugh when I read that.

Heh...I laughed about it too [eventually]. So dumb, but at least there were no witnesses...which is kind of a shame, because it was frakkin' *spectacular*. <grin>

Hip has nasty bruise, and shoulder/arm, knee, and foot are all banged up and stiff, so been icing and heating and ibuprofening and groaning like an old man...but over all, not as bad as it could have been.

Need an icepack for the pride, though... >.<
