I should have followed my initial inclinations ... yesterday afternoon I was relaxing on the sofa, alternating between reading (Patricia McConnell's For The Love of a Dog) and doing sudoku puzzles, and I felt like staying there would be a lovely way to pass the rest of the day. But it was such an absolutely gorgeous day out that I felt like it woulf be criminal not to take advantage of it and go get some exercise. Never mind that I had already had an agility class with Lucy and taught a flyball class and was a little tired, I decided that I neede th take Lucy for a nice walk through the 'hood. (Mr. Gomez was out with Mr. Pants ... Mr. P says they went hiking but for all I know they were at Hooter's. Wait, do we even have a Hooter's in Durham? I don't think so ... yet another thing to love about Durham.)
So off we went on our usual route up and down the streets and alleys of Trinity Park--Lucy loves the alleys ... I think there are lots of critter smells from the various urban wildlife. I was briskly strolling along, admiring someone's spinach garden, basking in the springline air, when I stepped on a bit of uneven pavement that caused my foot to tip sideways. CRACK! went my ankle and I fell to the ground. I think the first word I said started with an F.
I managed to get up and hobble home (Lucy was very confused by my stange pace) and I started the RICE regimen. I guess I will be spending some time on the sofa (good thing I get tomorrow off work). But there are a few things I really need to get out and about for--one of which being the new music show tonight on WXDU--and for that I need crutches. ANy locals got some I can borrow? I suppose I could send Mr. Pants out to buy me some, but it would be great to borrow a set. Most the locals know how to reach me ... if you don't leave a comment (it won't get published thanks to comment moderation) eith your digits and I'll call you.
