I did something gloriously stupid this morning.
I woke up for work late. Now, the first thing I do before I get ready for work is start my car, because I don't like to freeze my arse off. I grabbed my keys and ran out to the livingroom. "Shit, I forgot to put on pants." But I thought, whatever, I'm only going to be out there for a few moments. I threw on a pair of clogs and went headfist into the bane of my western New York existence. I hate winter. "Shit, I'm cold! Shit, I'm cold!" As I ran to my car, threw the door open and started it. Slammed the door shut, and bolted back for the house. Now, what's about to happen next just makes me hate winter even more. It's been windy here, so some snow had drifted its way across the outside of our porch. I'm running like a fucking demon through the snow with no pants, wearing freaking clogs, no makeup on and swearing like a tavern wench when it happened. Due to my extreme haste and stupidity, and the fact that the snow had drifted over the step, I miscalculated where the step was. Which resulted in me being flung forward with great force, face-first into the steps. There I was, flying through the air with, what I can only imagine was, a look of stark horror on my face. My face which was about to be crushed into a set of fucking stairs. Luckily the part of my brain which had until now been still sleeping decided to wake up. I managed to throw my right arm out and prevent my face from being crushed entirely. I immediately struggled to get up, my fucking face hurt, my knees hurt, I lost a clog, there were tears streaming down my face, and my right middle finger hurt like a bitch. Thank God I didn't break my nose, though it still hurts. I feel like it should be bleeding or something. Imagine that feeling you get when you jam one of your fingers, but with your nose. My lip was swollen for half of my work day, so I felt like a freak. And I don't know WHAT I'm going to do if I need to flick somebody off with my right hand.
If I've learned anything, it's that I probably shouldn't go out in the middle of winter without pants on.
My finger hurts really bad. ;_;
