WRITER THONGED TO DEATH

Since living on my own since, well…
Four years now…
I’ve choked or somehow haphazardly…
Almost caused my own demise…
Or at the very least…
Almost caused grave bodily harm…
And always by unlikely culprits…
Like the jalapeno pepper I popped in my mouth…
Causing my throat to slam shut!
Note: there is no Heimlich for slammed-shut throats!
Or the vitamins and herbs I choked on.
Note: You need a FULL glass of water to swallow a handful of pills.
And then just yesterday…
A thong almost took me out.
As I stood on one foot balancing…
While putting the other foot in the leg opening...
My big toe got snared in the lace…
Causing me to lose my balance…
Which then caused me…
To hurtle head first towards the hardwood floor!
Thankfully, I pitched sideways and fell into the bed.
Note: perhaps next time I should sit down when putting it on.
Note: perhaps it’s time to give up thongs.
Note: perhaps this was TMI?
Note: I only blogged about this because one of my writer friends
         at coffee yesterday  said I should.
So?
Have you ever been the victim of an unlikely culprit?

Always, Em-Musing

OMG, I'm such a clutz so I feel your pain.

I laughed so hard about the thong! I've done that several times. So much so that I stand next to the bed so that I will fall on something soft!

I always have bruises on my legs from walking into stuff.

Uh, that was really funny. Thank goodness it didn't really take you out for good. Imagine the looks on the police when they found you?
Yipes.
