It’s dangerous out there

December 28, 2009 - Pam Rodgers
A big reason for my strong dislike of winter is the unpredictable and dangerous conditions it brings to natural, everyday kinds of activities. Take walking for instance. I was out and about getting some fresh air around town on Saturday. It was finally not snowing, raining or so cold you didn’t want to be out longer than 2 minutes; so, I took advantage of it. I was on my way back to my house when it happened. I stepped on a patch of ice, slipped, flailed my arms and fell to the ground, ending up on my naturally padded region. Good thing no one had a video camera because that would have been embarrassing to watch. The falling itself isn’t the bad thing...the aftermath is. The first thing to hit the ground was my left knee in a bent position. It hurt like a son of a gun when I got up. I made it back home...without crying I might add. I immediately iced it and popped three Advil. It is now bruised and swollen and it is hard to move around sometimes. I am not used to being hurt. I am one of those people who just walk off pain without a second thought. It’s frustrating to have it lingering even now. I am still praying for a short winter!
