I Only Wish I Had a Good Story

I could talk about how interestingly random, difficult, dramatic, yet quite rewarding my weekend was, but let's just say I'm glad it's over. I did call into a radio contest last night where they were having "Crappiest Weekend" contest, and gave a Reader's Digest version of the negative aspects of mine. The DJ wouldn't qualify me because mine was "too depressing" and he was looking for entertaining. *sigh*

What I will share with you is how I sprained my ankle, which, at Fran's request, involves an alien encounter.

I was kissing an alien in front of the Prada store on the street, when a man came and grabbed my purse away from me. The alien was no help (jerk!), so I took off on my own. Just as I tackled the thief, I hit my ankle on a light pole, which caused it to sprain. I did get my purse back, the thief was apprehended, and I broke up with the alien. But my ankle will take some time to heal.

Haha. Right.

I hadn't seen my roommate in days, so when her car pulled up at the ward activity next to the one I'd just gotten out of, I ran around the back of my car to go give her a hug. The terrain was uneven and I rolled my ankle, falling straight to the ground. I was able to walk after a few minutes, but it's been rather uncomfortable since. Now, the pain and the swelling has gone down, but it's turning some interesting colors.

I show you.

Kids, don't try this at home.

Sad day!

I hope it heals quickly...

And your alien story was pretty interesting. ;)

Get thee to a doctor. I thought my last sprained ankle wasn't serious and ended up in three months of physical therapy, with the doctor chiding me for not going in sooner. Every sprained ankle deserves a doctor. Your ankles are too critical to your stability.

The alien story was good though. I even believed it.

Luckily, it IS healing quickly. I'm bracing it and trying to take it easy.

Giggles - I totally agree with you. But unfortunately, doctors cost money, especially without insurance. I've been through this several times before though, hence the reason I even have the brace. I have my bands from my last visit to the physical therapist and I'll do what I can on my own for now.

I'm glad y'all like the alien. :)

Even with insurance I don't go to the doctor all the times I should.

When I did physical therapy they had me write the alphabet in the air with my foot. They thought it was funny when I told them that was just like the isolation drills we did in belly dancing.

Lol! Yay! At least you know your alphabet. ;)
