No....I wasn't drunk...and no-body hit me......

Last week I fell over on my way into the  supermarket.
In the middle of the day.
I am not sure how it happened but one minute I was walking towards the zebra crossing and the
next I was bouncing my head on the black and white stripes.
I am the luckiest person though because the kind lady who stepped out of the crowd that gathered was a GP. She was very kind and stopped the bleeding from a tiny cut on my forehead. I was most upset though because I had broken my specs....what I think of as my 'good glasses'.
So since then, and for the first time in my life I have been sporting  a black eye. It would be wrong to call it a black eye though...it has been purple, red, blue green and is now yellow.
It has been interesting seeing peoples reactions as they spot it....some ask 'ooh what happened?' and others ignore it or say 'did you burn his dinner again haha?'  Ha bloody Ha.

Deary-me. Do take care, Libs. I was in the supermarket waiting at the checkout and a rather tasty geezer was behind me in the queue. So, doing my best 'I may look really old but there's loads of life left in me yet' impression, I packed my shopping into the bags and swanned off laden like a donkey, while trying to remain really cool, whereupon I slipped on a flyer that someone had left lying on the floor and almost made a hole in the floor as I went down! The tasty geezer sprang to my aid but I was so embarrassed, I couldn't speak to thank him and fled, very red-faced, to my car!!In my case, a definite episode of 'pride really does come before you make a complete arse of yourself'! Hope you get your glasses fixed. x

Everyone thins that there is only one 'black', but even that doesn't exist. 90% pure black is invisible in our eyes - even if you can see out from behind it!

Hello--I wandered over from Tom's place. I must tell you, I fell the first week of November and broke my arm. Ha bloody ha to the whole experience, which less than half concluded. Let's see if your green eye goes away first.

Hello Tom, as perverse as it sounds it has been quite an interesting time sporting the 'eye'......don't ever want another one though!
Welcome Joanne, gosh that must have been painful..hope the healing is quick and easy.....as for my green eye ..well yes I am a very jealous person!

I know that this is just an elaborate cover story. The Mister is a cruel beast and in my opinion you should contact a women's refuge immediately!

Trish Burgess said...

Oh my poor friend - that must have shaken you up. Take care and hope the bruises fade quickly xx

YP.....no, he didn't hit me......somebody did once though many many years ago..I returned his ring and walked away.
Trish...thank you...I felt such a fool sprawled there on the zebra crossing! x

Awful to fall over in public! So humiliating, and scary. Hope you are getting all the sympathy you deserve from Mister!

I feel your pain... I have an ankle that "gives out" every once in a while. Doesn't need anything to happen - can be walking on flat ground in springtime, and suddenly it wobbles, and - I'm on the ground. It's so embarrassing! Sorry about your good glasses, too... hope you find some new ones that you like just as much! If people ask about your black eye, just tell them you're an MMA fighter.
