what goes up...

...must come down. and down. and down.

Who: me
When: last night
What: falling down a flight of stairs, stopping only when I hit the wall at the bottom
Where: in the middle of a "Tour of Homes," in a million-dollar-plus house in Grant Park
How: a combination of hardwood steps, slippery shoes, bad luck and perhaps a bit of bad balance
I'm relatively unharmed — a few contusions on my lower back, knee, shin and somehow a skinned thumb (?). And although I'm not enjoying the aftermath (chiropractor, epsom salt baths, ice pack, etc.) I have to say it was pretty damn funny. A few friends and coworkers can testify that it made a horrifyingly loud sound (insert noise of 20+ witnesses gasping) and I rolled down the stairs, side-to-side, bouncing around, Sonic the Hedgehog style. But all in all, I'd say I'm lucky I didn't snap anything (bones OR banisters).

hahahahah! I'm sorry. I don't mean to laugh, but I just get this vivid movie in my head, and it's hilarious.

OMG....Emma wants to know if I'm crying happy tears!!! I'm laughing so hard right now! Ok, I know I'm suppose to be like, "Oh, Devon, I'm so glad you are ok" and I really am. I swear I didn't start laughing until AFTER I read that there wasn't anything broken like bones or bannisters.

I thank God it was not worse - you had Angels watching over you . . . for sure. I love you, PS I wonder what their homeowner's insurance coverage is?
