This morning I heard an egg start to roll, spun around and caught it as it fell off the counter to the ground.
I was super proud. It was a total ninja move. My cat-like reflexes combined with super fast deductive reasoning as I both identified the sound and the location the egg was headed, all without looking and in time for me to catch it.
It wasn’t just a ninja move. It was a Sherlock Holmes style deduction followed by ninja skills.
A Sherlock ninja move.
Then I went to make my bed.
And in heaving all four blankets up in the air at one time to straighten them (Sorry Granny, just because I know how to make the bed the right way doesn’t mean I do) I banged my shin on the bed frame hard enough that I pitched forward and landed face first on the bed, not even catching myself with my hands because they were still gripping the blankets as I yowled out loud from the pain in my now bruised shin.
Oh how the mighty fall.
Must we always be reminded of our inadequacies? Recently I was feeling so pleased with myself for knocking a long list of things off our list of errands. I was especially happy, since I felt I was saving Rob, who was feeling a little under the weather, a lot of nuisance stuff to do. Then I lost my wallet–in the short space of time and distance between returning an item to Menards and picking up three things at WalMart. 😦
Oh no Helen! I hope you found it. What a way to wreck a very good day (I know the feeling!)
Oh, losing a wallet is the worst… I know, I do it far to regularly, Hope it didn’t set your day back too much!
I hate it when things are going so well…….and then one stupid maneuver….and bang! Back to reality. But you are superwoman in my eyes!
Ahhh reality… I like the one you hang out in but those eyes of yours must have a fog of Captain over them they aren’t seeing things *quite* right! ;P
My life story right there. Hilarious…
🙂 I’m so glad people can relate!
Remember that one shining moment … your Camelot. 😀
😀 I have told lots of people about my amazing egg catching skills!
I could almost feel that pain….glad you caught the egg. That was super awesome. 🙂
Thanks! It felt amazing, and also good to be brought back to reality so I don’t get a big ego about it! 😉
LOL! Too funny. Well, one can’t be ninja all the time – that would simply be exhausting.
