I didn’t slip, I wasn’t pushed, I FELL!

I really was hoping to get away from health issues, but ...

I have had trouble standing up the past month, and this morning I almost made it straight up, but I lost my balance and fell. Don’t know how it happened, but the toes of my left foot hurt. Cliff iced it down for me, and after due consideration, I called 911. They hauled me off to the Emergency Room of our local hospital, where they x-rayed the foot. The results? Three hairline fractures of the second, third, and fourth metatarsals. They fitted me with a shoe cast, and now I’m sitting in a rented wheelchair narrow enough to go down my hallway. Cliff gets to push. Aaarrghhh!

How about something funny. (The above is NOT!)

A TEACHER: Maria, go to the map and find North America.
MARIA: Here it is.
TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
CLASS: Maria.
TEACHER: Why are you late, Frank?
FRANK: Because of the sign.
TEACHER: What sign?
FRANK: The one that says, "School Ahead, Go Slow?
TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell "crocodile?"
TEACHER: No, that's wrong
GLENN: Maybe it’s wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.
TEACHER: Ronald, what is the chemical formula for water?
TEACHER: What are you talking about?
RONALD: Yesterday, you said it's H to O.
TEACHER: Millie, give me a sentence starting with "I."
MILLIE: I is...
TEACHER: No, Millie... Always say, "I am."
MILLIE: All right... I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.
TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now,
Louie, do you know why his father didn't punish him?
LOUIS: Because George still had the ax in his hand.
TEACHER: Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
HAROLD: A teacher.


  1. Lol! And touche' on that last one!

    Sounds like you're home now. I am SO glad. And a thank you to Cliff for looking out for you. Heal well.

  2. That's rotten about your foot but "I is" glad you didn't fracture your typing hand!

  3. So sorry about your foot!! At least you are maintaining your sense of humor.
