Well winter has returned to Central New York. We have freezing rain and nipply weather. Did I say nippley? I wonder which is the correct spelling?
I got off work today, on time, for the first time ever. I left at 3:15 and swung by the house to pick up Mr. Effer. I thought he could drive and I could knit on the way to Debbie's house. So, long story short, Mr. Effer gets hungry and wants to eat at Wendy's. Of course, I'm agreeable and never turn down a good, greasy burger and salty fries with ketchup. Anyhoo, when we came out of Wendy's, the pavement was a sheet of ice, and I fell flat on my back. I couldn't get up and Mr. Effer just slid past me. Normally I would be embarrassed, but the pain exceeded the pride. And I think when you get older, you just don't give a damn about what other people think. Well after a few tries with a few people and a few moans and groans, I was back in the vertical position. Everyone was slipping and sliding, having difficulty standing upright. Don't you think they should have given me a coupon for a free food item instead of just offering to call an ambulance?
Anyway, I'm just fine and have the next two days off of work. And because I fell, I won't be able to catch dust bunnies or work around the house, although I am well enough to knit!
