Ouchie!
I haven't started a morning off with searing, blinding pain in a while. I was kind of getting proud of myself. You know what pride comes before, right?

A big fall down the stairs.

I fell about halfway down our 17 stairs... on my rear (thankfully), but the back of my left arm took the brunt of the fall, and the ensuing carpet burn.

The picture doesn't do it justice. And now I need to go get in the shower, but I have the fear. Needles of water in open wounds really get me down...

Ooooh, ahhh, ohh. If only you had freefallen off the balcony you would have been more prepared, thinking "Ok, double shot of vodka,check, aim for the best terrain, check, relax don't tense up, check, get the wide leg/arm pose and then finish on the feet, check. There, well then I've just fallen without impalement and saaaay...no carpet burns!" That would have turned out better. Best read up on the proper stair procedure eh?
That is funny survival info. I'm pretty sure if I fell from a plane I would go with alternating screams "I'm falling!! I'm dying!!" but whatever works for you.
Oh, and on a separate note. Thanks for the RE info yesterday!! It really gave me peace of mind. :)
