Lately, the weather has been hovering around freezing which has resulted in temperatures a little bit above freezing during the day and below freezing overnight. The resulting melting and re-freezing has turned some sidewalks in to virtual ice skating rinks and, though I’d deftly avoided a few close calls over the last week or so, it was only a matter of time until I fell victim to their iciness.
This afternoon, I decided to walk to the grocery store to get a few things and as I was walking, one second I was upright, the next second I was on my hands and knees halfway in a slush puddle, my purse also halfway in the slush puddle. I’m sure I looked thoroughly ridiculous. I certainly felt thoroughly ridiculous. I’m still not sure exactly what happened or how I fell, but both of my upper shins and one of my elbows are sore to the touch so we’ll see whether I get any pretty, colorful bruises.
Is it summer yet?
And yes, for those of you wondering, I did make it all the way to the grocery store and back. Next time, I’m sending the diplocat for groceries. Cats always land on their feet, right? 😉
