On the way out of the office talking on the phone, I walked off the pavement. Literally. The pavement ended & I didn't see it. Colleagues say I floated on air. Unfortunately am not built to fly so I fell & tore a ligament in my left foot.

At home. Making mango juice. When I finished peeling the mangos I tried to lick the juice & bits of fruit off the knife. I nearly sliced my tongue. It's still swollen & am still lisping. Hopefully not forever.

I ran the hot water in the shower & hung my crumpled blouse behind the bathroom to iron it out a bit. It works like dry-cleaning. Then I undressed & tried to get under the shower. Under the boiling hot water. Fortunately our bathtub is too high so the hot water only caught the top of my head & one foot as I tried to climb in. My right foot this time.
So now I am walking with a crutch. My left foot internally injured. I have second degree burns on my right foot, first degree burns in my scalp & I am lisping with a tongue swollen to twice its normal size. And I still went to work today.
You should have seen the faces on the doctors & the nurses when I went back to the emergency room for the 3rd time today. My husband kept getting dirty looks. They think he's been abusing me.
