Personal Drivel.

It's not often I post personal stuff on here, but last night at stupid o'clock I woke up to go for a pee.(Nice, I hear you think).In my bedroom I have a tallboy.

This houses my stereo/cd player and serves as a steadying post when I reach for my crutch,except last night I missed it and fell on to it, ribs first! Agony followed. I think i've cracked one.

Now, i'm not looking for sympathy.

According to Derek and Clive(aka Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) sympathy is in the dictionary between "shit and syphilis".

I still hurt though!

I am so sorry. I hope there is not broken anything.
Put some ice. Good wishes!

Thanks Sam, I will survive!

I'll have to remember where sympathy fits in the next time my Drugging Diva Daughter is looking for some :/

MarytrMom said...

PS glad you're not hurt too bad...:"they" say you shouldn't wrap broken ribs anymore?

john.g. said...

MarytyMom, that's one of my favourite sayings!

I'll be okay.

What a bummer. Couldn't you have come up with a better explanation, such as a battle with a burglar, or an overenthusiastic lady friend?

You sure it wasn't a case of having one too many in the MM? :-)
(Of course we believe you......needing to get up for a pee......*coff*)

Get checked out John, even tho' apparently there's not much can be done for broken ribs. Hope you recover soon :-)

Ouch - crutches aren't very flexible, are they? Go carefully please.

john.g. said...

Sue18,afraid not! No tales of derring-do here!

Jayne, thanks, but i'd been in bed for five hours when I got up!

Mickle, I will! xx

When I started reading this post I thought you were going to say that you mistook the tallboy for the lavatory . . .

. . . Hope you mend soon; I'm told large quantities of beer can work wonders.

Fell over a TALL BOY!!!!
How tall????
Shall have to think about that one.

john.g. said...

Mr.Rob, be very careful!

Well, I don't care where sympathy is found, it makes a body feel good always. Hope you're not hurting still, John.

Clumsy sod!

Pat said...

Poor boy. Hope you weren't the worse for wear.

john.g. said...

Pat, no I wasn't! Keith got it rigt.

Hope you're feeling a bit better by now. The problem is that with a cracked rib it must hurt to laugh and I reckon with your sense of humour it's hard not to most of the time.

Sablonneuse, VERY painful!
