Ninja Moves

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 lookingΒ andΒ in time for me to catch it.

No eggs were harmed in the reproduction of this epic event.

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. 😦

    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

    LOL! Too funny. Well, one can’t be ninja all the time – that would simply be exhausting.
