OMG! I’m such a KLUTZ!
Before my 1:00 shift today I thought I could squeeze in a mani|pedi. (Wrong!) I was excited to look my best for my meeting tonight at Craigs with a up-and-coming Writer/Director. Apparently I miscalculated.
Upsettingly, the whole process took longer than usual (How would I know Nail Spa Lane would be busy on a Monday?) Realizing I was LATE, I ran through the alley, and hopped over a planter, but my flip flop got caught on the ledge and I landed face-down on the pavement. OUCH!
A sweet parking lot attendant helped me up and asked me if I was okay in Spanish (at least I think that’s what he said.) Everything ached as I limped away in total embarrassment. When I got to my car I cringed as I looked into the rear-view mirror because the right side of my face was reddish and swollen. Still I had hope.
When I got to the ER, Anthony the Triage Nurse took one look and was actually nice to me for once.
My trip down “Ungraceful Lane” got me:
- A skinned right knee
- A bruised left leg
- A sprained right foot
- A bruised right shoulder
- A cut above my right eyebrow
- A swollen, scraped cheek
- the beginning of (s#@t!) a black eye
Thankfully nothing was broken. I didn’t need stitches by my eye. My hot E.R.Doc showed me his best bedside manner — cleaning my wounds, bandaging my knee, wrapping my foot for support. He slipped me some extra cold packs (sooo romantic – ahaha!) and told my supervisor Charlayne that I needed to have a few days off to recuperate.
Cast as “Klutzilla” in my very own HORROR MOVIE –
– I had to (boo hoo) cancel the meeting with the Writer|Director. (My agent said the character he’s looking for is NOT a battered woman!)
Living the dream…
