Laura Petry Petrie moment of the day

I've always thought that taking things down from attics and putting things up in attics were at least a two-person job, if not the husband's job, and in my case, it turns out I was right. I just fell off the attic ladder, coming down hard on my right foot with a weak ankle, breaking the top to the Christmas wrapping paper container, knocking over an open can of mineral oil, spilling it all over some unfinished cabinet doors, and probably getting it all over my butt.

Oh, Rob!

(That's gonna really hurt in about 20 years.)

Oh no! How's your ankle? You didn't break anything, did you?

Well, that beats falling through an attic. :)

Hope you're feeling better.

The thought hadn't occurred to me that I might have gotten mineral oil all over my rear end, until I sat down in a rush to alert the world to my near brush with serious injury and possibly death!!!!

Seriously, as the day progresses more parts of my body are feeling sore, but other than a few bruises and a sore ankle--it did not turn in the fall--I'm great!

That would be a Clark Griswald moment.

I take exception!!! Are you implying that I'm no better than a fungi experiment? The nerve of some people!

You should all know that Nancy has a history with ladders. Let's see.... the last time Nancy fell off of a ladder she was in a COMA for several days and scared the crap out of all of us.

Enough with the ladders,

Big Brother.
