Yesterday was an interesting day!
While on sabbatical from
my duties as an
I decided to
I am having the Saturday Brunch Girls
over for brunch on Saturday
(that's why we call ourselves the Saturday Brunch Girls)
and since it is almost Valentine's Day
why not decorate the tables with some really girly-girly stuff?
That meant moving some of the winter-snow-village stuff
out of the way.
We had some large ceramic tiles laying around
so that we could stare at them and
instead of moving them out of the kitchen
I just lined them up out of the way.
I just needed to move the snow stuff over to the bookshelf
which just happened to be where the tiles
were lined up.
I stepped on one of the display tiles
and it went scooting.
Tiles on tiles can scoot really fast.
I did not scoot...
I went Down.
In the process I knocked over a lamp,
broke one of the snow village boys,
and took the top off one of the little houses.
As I lay on the floor
clutching the broken boy,
I thought of that TV commercial
where the old lady is on the floor
"I've fallen and I can't get up!"
Do not bother to get me one of those Lifeline gadgets.
I spent the rest of the morning
setting up the table for the Brunch Girls
mourning the broken boy's head
All those days on ladders,
at the house,
up and down
down and up
working working working
in hazardous cold conditions,
with nary a slip...
only to find myself
Valentine's Day decorations!
Moral of this story:
Decorating can be hazardous to your health!
Ceramic tile hurts when you fall down go boom on your bum!
