I have never clamed to be graceful and I have proved it over and over again during my whole lifetime. I won’t go into all my awkward moments where I have fallen, walked into things, or tripped up but there have been many. This time I didn’t trip, I didn’t fall, I didn’t bang into anything. Here is the photo of my boo boo.Now to tell you what I did. Remember I told you I cleaned out a closet where I keep some of my sewing supplies? Well, I had a small wooden dresser in there and was moving it around and dropped it on my bare foot. I was surprised it hurt so bad and didn’t look at my foot right away and when I did, I knew why it hurt. The dresser was one of those small unpainted kind that I got in college and it is pretty light weight, especially with the drawers out like they were that day. Basically I just dropped it when I was trying to fit it into the closet space and one corner landed on the top of my bare foot so now I have puffy purple bruise. I know….what a klutz I am. If I would have been smart enough to wear shoes I would not have injured myself but I pretty much go without shoes all summer long and flip flops when I go out.
Maybe I will be more graceful from now on but am not counting on it as it is just probably in my nature!
