I fell down the hill and bruised my body, and my ego. I have to dump grease outside due to the (stupid!) septic system, so I carried the crock pot to the back door, put my shoes on, and prepared for the trip. Did I say “trip?” Yep, I did.
The liquid started to swish back and forth in the heavy pot, so as I walked out the door, I was trying to be more still, slowing down. What I didn’t think about was that we now have TWO steps down to the backyard, after new concrete was poured last summer. I slowly stepped down on the first step, but tripped on the second, thinking I was on the grass. Did I say “on the grass?” Yep, I did.
My whole body fell face-forward, onto the grass. The crock pot went rolling down the hill. I went down the hill on my chest (guessing the grease and dog poop made it slippery). I screamed and pushed up with my hands — ouch! My fingers must have jammed as the crock pot fell and I hit the ground. I can barely type this! Did I say “I can barely type this?” Yep, but I am anyway.
I took a shower and put my clothes in the washer. (I’m sure they are ruined, but they are just weekend clothes, anyway.) Now I’m off to take a nap. I may not get up again tonight. Oh, yeah. I’m grabbing an ice pack on the way to the bedroom.
Embarrassing! How was your day?

My day is certainly doesn’t have the action of yours. I’ll pass on that kind of trip. Hope your fingers are better soon.

Um, I’d have to say at this point my day has certainly not been as eventful as yours. Talk about “exploding a moment”. You had me there with you on the step and sliding through the mess. Hoping you wake from your nap a little less achy and shaky! Stay safe out there!!

Not only does this spill (pun intended) sound embarrassing, but it also sounds painful. Also, if this happened to me, I’d use it as a reason not to cook! Take care, be careful out there.
My day: Well, it’s fairly uneventful, but I’m nursing a bad attitude over something I have no control over. I need to get over it.
BTW, your Website box isn’t working for me.

Website box? I’m sorry, I’m so low-tech that I don’t know what that is. You mean like where to follow?

Oh no!!!!!!! 😦 I hope you feel better. That sounds like an awful way to start off a Sunday, or any day for that matter.

Oh my goodness!
With the way you wrote this slice, I felt like I was there!
