Deep in the Doghouse

I can be such a jerk.

I've been miserable all day. Mad. Angry. Just out of sorts. Jeanine and I were due at a friend of hers tonight for dinner.

I whined.

Okay, deep down I was looking forward to some awesome Cuban food. I could not keep my mouth shut though.

We get the kids, go out the door... I slip on the last small piece of sheer ice on the driveway. I think I broke my elbow.

Do I go? Do I stay home?

Jeanine sends me back in the house. I'm not going to pay for this, she says.

I should go but it hurts. Half of it is how scared I was, I'm sure. It hurts to move but its just an elbow.

I'm deep in the doghouse tonight. Typing with one hand and wishing I hadn't been such a jerk all day.

I know, donald. I really, really get that part.

and part of it, suzy? is that I simply did not have the reflexes I once had to make the fall not so bad.

reflexes fail me quite often these days. I can guarntee you will walk more cautiously on any icy surface from now on I know I sure do. Hope your feeling better today.

You know, the "slip and fall" is the #1 danger for old people.

Just sayin' ....

I'm 6 months older than Iggy Pop (OK, maybe that was a bad example) and last year a physical therapist told me I should be careful not to fall and break my hip! WTF???

We were never as unbreakable as we thought we were.

And we never lose our capacity for being jerks.

You have your house in Miami picked out yet? Maybe The Fort? There used to be a great little restaurant there where they take you there in a boat.

p.s., fix the elbow. Elbows and ankles that don't heal right will bother you till you're as old and decrepit as me.
