Mud 1 / Deb 0
Everything happens to me. I am not a clumsy person. I am not a clumsy person. I am not a clumsy person... I have fallen and hurt myself three times in my adult years. All three times have been in the last year and half. I am not a clumsy person!
I did a little mud sliding last night. I was on my may into a hotel in Newport, stepped off the curb and next thing I know I am falling, very slowly. I landed on the front of my ankle. DANGER. Most of you know I just injured my ankle in October; ripped the ligaments and tendons pretty bad.
I ended up landing under a Camry that was parked in front of the curb. Apparently I made no noise when falling since no one came to my rescue. I called my sister for help after I was already flat on my back in the mud. My sister-in-law came and bent over laughing while I whimpered. I finally told her to "shut up". LOL! My sister was too busy rummaging for her camera.
By the time I got up, we are all laughing so hard, I was laughing and crying. lol! Getting up was not simple, covered in mud and stuck in mud made me slip and slide. I ended up crawling over the flower bed to a dryer area.
My ankle was hurting, not as bad as my other injury though, thank God. I went home and looked at my foot and saw BLOOD! lol. This mud was infused with some sort of plant chemicals and would not come off, I still have a film of mud on my foot that won't budge!
I came out of the ring with a swollen bruised foot, toes, and a few scrapes. The mud, well... It's still sitting there laughing at me.
The worst thing... or funniest, my sister got it all on video! Her first reflex to help was "Pull out the camera!"
