My lack of grace is so pronounced sometimes that it amazes me I'm even able to put one foot in front of the other.
Case in point?
I now have a lovely red gouge on my nose where my skin used to be. Thankfully, people have been very politely ignoring it, and some even go so far as to say things like, "Oh, it's hardly noticeable" when I call attention to it. You know, the proverbial elephant in the room. Only it's on my face.
A big, fat elephant on my face.
I got the elephant in the most ridiculous of ways. It's so ridiculous, Jerry had me reenact how it happened because he didn't think it was possible. Then, when it almost happened a second time, he stopped me. And sung a hearty rendition of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer."
So, how'd it happen, you ask?
The clothes hamper bit me.
I was sitting on the floor, playing with Alli and folding her clothes. As I reached in to grab more, my forearm hit the lid and it came crashing down on my face. Completely stunned, I reached up to touch my nose and retrieved a hunk of skin.
