The Curse of Clumsiness

by - October 15, 2010

What happened: Remember when I almost killed myself on my stairs? I was demonstrating the flying leap I took over the last three steps to save myself... in flat shoes, on flat ground.

Results: Possibly sprained/broken/severely-bruised right foot/ankle.

What I need: My blue ice pack [from when I busted my left ankle as a cheerleader].

Where it is: The laundry room at my parents house, an hour's drive from here.

Solution: Frozen Butter Peas.

That's what I call improvising.

  1. As soon as I saw the title I thought of those killer stairs of yours. I'm very sorry that you hurt yourself, Ashton. I hope it's nothing serious and that you feel much better in the morning!

  2. Peas are nasty anyways, nothing better than to use a frozen bag of them to soothe the pain!

  3. Improvisation in these situations is sometimes the only solution. Sorry about your ankle. Hope it gets better soon.
