I did trip and fall on Tuesday … on a decline, in chunky yet inflexible heel sandals …
Left ankle became parallel with the asphalt earth,
Right knee and ankle-bone bear red witness to the occasion.
I was speeding up based on someone I had just passed (whom I did not fear, but I always have to make my point).
He did not see me fall.
What is nice to report is that my left foot (isn't that a movie?)
Can almost do everything it's asked to do today, only 30+ hours later.
So, it wasn't the worst thing ever.
But it still hurts like … well, if I were a mere Homo erectus, I wouldn't have made it,
Unless those theories about caring (among that genetic strain) are true.
No photos of my brick-red scrapes are available.
