is your toe okay?

So, i'm taking my brother to the airport yesterday. due to the fact that i am only on my lunch break, i initially plan on dropping him at the curb. he sweet talks me into coming in to the ticket booth and helping him with his things. So, we giggle heinously about some nonsense in the elevator. i'm standing with a huge box in my arms next to the buttons, and my brother is to the left and a step behind me. the doors open. i go barrelling out through the doors, happily on my way.

or so i thought.

what REALLY happened, was that jess put his suitcase directly in my line of walking. i take a large step forward, my clunky right shoe catches on the suitcase, knocking it over. the momentum sends the box and i sprawling, landing on my knee and ankle at an odd angle. one second, i'm grinning like an idiot at faire, the next, i'm face down on the floor, propped up on both hands. all i can see is my arms on either side of the large box, which had landed on the toe of a perfectly white tennis shoe. i shyly follow the shoe up the legs to the face of the airport employee, who is looking at me as if i had just pulled my face of with a monkey wrench. i look at her worried, and say "did i hurt your toe?" she said something that sounded like disbelief. "is your toe okay?" she recovers. "Is my TOE okay? are YOU okay?!??" i realize then, that i'm still in the same angle that i had fallen, laying funkily on my leg and ankle. i gingerly untangle myself, worried that i had severely sprained my ankle. ankle fine? check. knee fine? i believe so. i clambor up and out of the way, the lady edged around me like i was a leper, and jess and i went on our way.

jessie giggled like a prom queen the entire way.

.....to be continued....

So? Was her toe OK?

You're really leaving us hanging on the whole "Is her toe OK" thing.

Oh yeah...your toe...I got one of those too. 3 weeks ago my big toe got run over by a Harley. I got a broken toe and cracked kneecap all on the same leg. And then I got stung by a wasp on the same leg...Is someone trying to tell me something?

Why all these stupid injuries on the same leg...talk about the walking wounded...

We must be related or something...I think it's kinda funny that we both got the same kinda injuries...

But can my leg that has all the boo boo's just quit getting them? If I gotta have pain, can we spread it around a bit...my poor leg is getting ready to go on strike.

hope your leg and toe are ok.

peace

lol - it's almost like that leg of yours is a magnet for any negative sources ;)

when i was in my car accident back in '00, my leg was bruised in almost identically the same places as it was this time. i find that creepy.

Ouch, I'm sorry!!!!!!
Aubrey, OW!!
You poor thing, I'm so glad you didn't break anything.

It sounds like after the swelling went down, you were feeling better, but you should take it easy on that poor knee and ankle anyway *hugs*

Be careful, hon!
