First of all, who the hell invented these things anyway? A 9-volt battery, really?? At least the Carbon Monoxide detector uses AAs like the rest of the free world. Secondly, it was early and I was less than alert. This combination alone led to my demise. So this is how it went down: I began to climb up, bracing myself on the door frame. In struggling with the 9-volt battery factor, the kitchen bar stool began to wobble. Apparently the linoleum was too clean (yes, too clean, I'm telling the story) and allowed for the stool to slip out from under me. I did not fall to my bottom, however whatever the maneuver was that I did it most certainly was not graceful. It was "bull in a china shop" graceful is what it was. It resulted in the stool leg pinning itself behind my left knee and my right foot/ankle decided the top portion of my foot should scrape along some portion of the stool and be stood upon. Amazingly, nothing is broken. However, I will be sporting a hell of a bruise in both locations for the next few weeks. Just call me Grace.
