Death by step ladder....

Death by step ladder....


So, yah!

Ever had one of those moments where you do something so stupid embarrassing you just want die??

I have them often....

For once, I was able pull one of these moments off without an audience.

Miracles do happen!

I was updating the information board outside my office and trying like hell be creative and artsy.

Something I struggle at so I put a lot of thought into it while I'm doing it.

So much so, apparently, that I can totally forget I'm on the top step of a little step ladder and just....

Step back!

As you can imagine, did not go smoothly.

That 2 foot drop can come as quite a shock when your expecting your foot to touch down much sooner.

Somehow, I managed to land on my feet and merely stumble back, catching my balance on the wall behind me.

I wanted to die!

Looking around immediately, I couldn't believe my eyes when NOT A SINGLE PERSON was milling about, ready to see my humiliation.

Thanking God, I suddenly realized my hands were a little shaky and my heart was beating fast.

Adrenalin.... An amazing thing.

It wasn't long before my Fitbit was telling me I need to lower my heartrate with some breathing exercises and de-stress.

Damn!

I managed to escape injury but nearly gave myself a heart attac

Happy Tuesday!

    Isn't it funny, though, that whenever we do something embarrassing or dumb and no one sees it, we feel like we need to tell someone! LOL
I only own up to it under the guise of anonymity. LOL

    Aye, I've done that. Fortunately it was the bottom rung I missed and only therefore fell on my arse.......unfortunately I had a wet paint brush in my hand at the time, and an audience........
I'm usually pretty observant of what I'm doing.... My mind was just in a million places at once. Not only was I focused on what I was doing on the board, I was also trying to figure out what else I wanted to put on there. ugh!

    Wow! That's quite a jolt you gave your whole body. Hopefully you won't wake up in the morning feeling like a truck hit you.
So far I'm doing ok... It startled me more than anything.

    No one saw you, so you were relieved, and then you share it here?

    I am not making fun of your mishap, just that you shared it here!

    I do hope that you do not have any delayed negative effects. :My back would probably complain the next day from the sudden jolt.
I feel ok, no side effects yet. Just woke up and no back issues. I can share it here because I'm pretty much anonymous and I thought it was funny... Lol. I just don't want my coworkers to know, that's embarrassing.

We're participating in a step challenge so I've been wearing my fitbit again to track my steps.... It's a real pain. I don't like wearing jewelry and stuff anymore, it irritates me.
