Just a Funny Story

This isn’t a rant, it isn’t a rave, it is just a funny story.

A couple of years ago I had to have hernia surgery to repair a hernia from a popped gall-bladder stitch 9 years prior. I had ignored it for years and one day during a routine exam my doctor declared it had to “go.”

Surgery was more extensive than anyone thought and the pain and discomfort lasted longer than I had anticipated. The doctor later told me I should have stayed in the hospital overnight, but I had already declared that wasn’t going to happen! I had decided 3-4 days was long enough to be incapacitated, so off to a class I went on the 5th day after surgery.

Parking was an issue and I decided to park on an island that was covered with leaves…you know, those little oak leaves that are really slick when there is a pile of them? Well, as usual, I was running late. I flew up, parked and began the slowwwww descent to the ground as I was so sore, standing up straight took about 5 minutes. The minute my feet hit the ground (I was descending from a huge four door Jeep) I knew I was in trouble. I tried to hang on to the door, but the centrifugal force of this very solid, short, body (not saying I am chunky or anything) was too much for my little arms to hold and I literally slid..verrrrry slowly out of my car, feet first and slid UNDER the Honda Civic parked next door to me.

I have always wondered what the real purpose of having larger breasts was, but now I know. Had it not been for my boobs, I might have continued under the car and not been able to extricate myself from the underside of the car! As it was, I slid under the Civic, and came to an abrupt halt when my boobs hit the car’s side. The pain was excruciating, but my uncontrollable laughing made it even so! All I could do was think…dear God..please don’t let anyone get in this car and back up!

Somehow I got out from under the car and took my grass stained butt into class. My entrance and subsequent story had them laughing uncontrollably for about 5 minutes. Hope you got a chuckle or two also!

This meets with my favorite quote: “Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile.”

    How come dear old Mom hasn’t heard this “hoot” before? All’s well that ends well.
