I'm a Fool

Yesterday morning I decided to be a fool. I walked down the stairs to the first floor and three steps from the bottom I walked off the stairs. I fell face first onto the carpeted landing. In several split seconds I had all kinds of thoughts go through my head. “I’m not at the bottom yet.” “I better try to land to the left by the suitcase.” and “I wonder how long it would take someone to find me.”

It didn’t take my husband long to find me. Mostly I scared myself. The knee I landed on has a rug burn and the big toe I did something to has a bruise across the top. Starting last night my left leg and knee started to ache so today I’m walking a little strangely.
