A Bruise to the Ego

It was funny when he did it.  Remember the opening to the Dick Van Dyke TV show when Dick came in and tripped over the ottoman?  Classic comedy performed by one of the masters.  It was hilarious!

Not so funny when a fifty-one year old woman does it when she’s going downstairs for a late night snack.  Who put that ottoman right there?  Oh yeah, it was me.  How embarassing.  All for the sake of crackers and cheese.

I scream and Gerry comes running to find me flat on my back on the living room floor.

Was the bruise on the side of my leg worth it?  You bet it was – c’mon we’re talking about crackers and cheese here!  Was the bruise to my ego worth it?  That one’s a little tougher to justify.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. MOM! Oh my goodness!! I hope you're all right!! And yeah, I must agree, for the sake of Cheese and Crackers…sooo worth it! YUM!!

  2. Ouch! Sounds very much like something I'd do. But, then, that's also one of my favorite snacks. What kind of cheese? I would go to great lengths for a good Havarti on a good wheat or rye cracker. Seriously, Linda, I hope you're OK.

  3. LOL! WHO DID THAT?…oh ya…me 😐 Hilarious! Hope you're okay though…

  4. Ouch! A rye cracker alone would be worth a bruise. But the fall–that's a little scary. Hope you're all right.

  5. Hi Linda 🙂
    I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt….and I agree… YUM!
    I've had a lovely visit here and will be back.

  6. So sorry – hope you're OK!

  7. Oh. I think you are related to me? I kicked the weights I left in the floor -in the dark. BE CAREFUL.
