The pain...the PAIN....

I had no clew that I could do a split.

I was putting up coated screens in the darkroom/laundry area..."dark" being the operative word...by the light of a yellow CFL, and as I turned to head to the steps after completing my task, my left foot proceeded to move far outside the normal scope of my walking, as I hit a wet patch. My body, of course, followed, leaving my right foot behind. I made incoherent pained sounds that did not carry well, and so I had to lever myself up using the dryer. 

There are now feelings I have not felt, where I have never felt them. I await the morning to reveal what I have wrought, for I was wearing a favorite pair of shoes with no tread left, that I ONLY wear in dry places. I guess it's goodbye to you, dear friends.

Maybe I should bronze them....

I'll add you to my prayers. You know, that is one pain I have not, to memory, felt. I am hoping to keep it that way, but may have just doomed myself. I'll pray once, maybe twice, before you wake. Probably, unless you wake really early... though there is probably a two hour time difference. I best get a prayer in.

Bless you, sir.

Also, prayers for Those Not Here would be appreciated.

I need your email.

Hmm? I'm already paranoid. Don't feed my foibles!

I've been keeping you and foam in my prayers. You kids... I have this worry that you are in a hospital, in traction, fighting for your life and ability to walk. Dang kids. Anyway, I'll keep up the prayers until I hear you are out of the woods, one way or another.
