A bunch of useless crap
Published on April 5, 2011 By MasonM In Blogging

I walked back to my motel room from the local bar. No problem. Once I got back to my room I grabbed the ice bucket and went to fill it up to ice down a few beers I had left over in my room. I should say here that I was not more than mildly intoxicated.

After filling the bucket I started back to my room and took a misstep off the side of the sidewalk. My foot was caught in a decorative bush there and I tripped. I fell very undignifiedly on the pavement. I struck my elbow on the edge of the sidewalk and cut it open.

Murphy's Law being what it is a young man saw me fall down and, as I picked myself up in the most dignified manner I could muster, he asked me if I was ok.

Cudos to the young man for being concerned. I thank him for that.

I told him I was ok and immediately started searching around for the Savinelli that launched from my mouth when I fell. I found it, unharmed, and put it back into my mouth trying to muster at least a little dignity.

Once I returned to my room I washed my elbow and examined the damage. A nasty gash on the elbow that could perhaps use a couple of sutures but will not get them. I cleaned and dressed it and will live with it.

Yeah, ya do what ya do. Very embarrassing for someone to see you trip like that but you just deal with it.

On the upside, I only spilled half the ice.

I always hope that no one saw - but in your case, the good Samaritan observed all.  In this case I know how you feel!

Yeah, what are the odds that someone else would be out of their room at just that moment? I am just glad my pipe wasn't damaged. Skin heals, wood doesn't.
