i was simply going out to lock the garage door
and return to the dishes
i made it to the lock with no problem but upon returning noticed the boys had left
the skateboard smack in the middle of the garage - now that isn't safe!
i knew it needed to be returned to it's storage spot
i leaned down to pick it up and thought
"i wonder if I could ride this thing" and immediately heard a voice in my head screaming at me NO, don't do it.
i did it.
oh, did i do it.
all was fine as i stepped onto it, i should've stopped there, but nooooo, i had to actually push off with my other foot-
off i went
wow those things are fast
i knew immediately i had made a bad choice - i felt myself falling
i made one of those split second, potentially life saving decisions
i jumped off
i must protect my head - (since it helps me make such good decisions and all)
i braced myself for the landing- but never really hit the ground - whew
in preventing the nasty fall i apparently put a little too much strain on my body---
so far my left side, right leg, shoulder, neck and lower back are throbbing a beautiful symphony in unison
maybe the pain won't last any longer than the ride :)
i'm getting the heating pad and some Motrin
and the moral of the story- listen to the voices in my head next time.
