An Accident That Could Have Been Much Worse

DAVE HAD A FALL and a close call.  It could have been worse. 

I suspect that if Dave were not in as good condition as he now is, he could have suffered worse injuries.  Who knows??

I fell off a stool a couple of years ago when it slipped from under me while I was hanging a drape.  Down on the floor I want landing on my right hip. 

Awe GEEZ!!  Am I going to be one of those old ladies with the broken hip, I thought??? 

NO!!  I had a rather ugly bruise but no serious injury, which I attribute to good physical condition

As I lay there collecting myself, I looked under the bed and saw about 3 months collection of dust. The lesson??  DUST UNDER THE BED MORE OFTEN!!

Original content by David Burrows Realtor

Many of my friends know that over the past few years, I've taken off about 52 pounds. I've done this through a change in lifestyle when it comes to eating and exercise.

I had an interesting experience yesterday that could have been disasterous while exercising. I was doing my Aerobic Walking and my left foot stepped on the shoelace of my right foot. I was indoors and you guessed it, I fell and I mean, I fell hard! When I tumbled I hit a small table and the laptop computer went off the table and on to the floor. (It survived)

Why am I writing this?
Simple...... While I have a few aches and pains, I have no visible scars but it could have been much worse. I knew my shoelaces were too long and always double knotted them, but this time I had forgotten and as a result - I fell!

So my words for today are: Check those shoelaces!!!! Perhaps you need to change them to a shorter version! Make sure what happened to me never happens to you...  

Quite frankly, this was an accident that could have been much worse!

Lenn...

UGH... as we "get along" the distance from the top of the stool to the ground gets longer and longer!

Richard.  Indeed.  Funny thing is that the stool is only about 8 inches high.  However, on hardwood flooring, it slipped right out from under me. 

From that day, I have been much more careful.

You are very funny.  3 months worth of dust...Wow!  I think I might have found worse (shoes, lost socks, an old pet, etc).  As we all know, we never expect to be human when we bang ourselves up!  After all, we are Realtors and can get through anything.  But, even though you are a superhuman realtor, take it slow and be careful.  Your clients need you.

Mike.  YES!  They do need me.  If only that clearly understood that.

I do understand that when you do look under the bed you realize out of sight out of mind.

Some of the time we just do not take the time to do what is right.

Lenn, I think we're all a lot closer to a bad accident than we realize.  That missed step at the bottom of the stairway is enough to make life interesting all by itself :)

Tim.  HA!  That has always worked for me.

Liz and Bill.  When I think about it, we have close calls regularly.

Lenn, that's why my bed goes all the way to the floor.  What I can't see can't hurt me right! 

The older I get the more "mystery bruises" that are occurring.  My husband wants to wrap me up in bubble wrap!
