neurosurgery scars, part 2

I get it, neurosurgeons. You're angry that I managed to somehow blame you for the scar on my leg.

You were so angry, that you used your God-like status to insist that the universe repay me. And 48 hours after that blog post, while I was grocery shopping at Target, the universe caused the Earth to tilt ever-so-slightly. This imperceptible shift caused a can of black beans to roll from the top of my shopping cart (through the holes that were meant for chubby little baby legs) and sail to the floor, slicing my shin with its sharp lip on the way down.

Right next to my "neurosurgery" scar.

I've gotten over that, brain surgeons.

But then last week, you decided I deserved a harsher punishment and used your powers to move the cement stairs that lead to my back door just a tenth of an inch. And I tripped and skinned my other leg. And stubbed my toe. Like a 5 year old.

Okay. Fine. So maybe neurosurgeons had nothing to do with this. Maybe I'm just a klutz who shouldn't be allowed to use stairs and can't be trusted with canned goods. But that's just not as fun.

Trust me.


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one going through an overly-clumsy phase right now.
    A few weeks ago I was walking down the sidewalk and completely wiped out. I have no idea how on earth it happened, but it hurt. I was on the way to the bus for work so I had my bag and coffee mug. I held on to what's important (coffee) and the rest of me went flying. Skinned up my knee bad enough that I ripped a hole in my jeans. Thankfully it was early enough that there weren't many people out. But come was like I was learning to walk again.
    I did the stair thing about a month ago, but I somehow managed to fall DOWN them.
    Hope this streak of ours stops soon! ;)

  2. Hmm so this blog post reminded me of a song...

  3. i'm glad there's someone in this world who's just as clumsy as i am.

  4. Awww! Your poor legs! I tend to bump into things all the time and my legs and rear are often covered with a horrifying array of bruises.
