Well, here is what I didn’t talk about last week. I had laid down about 10 o’clock Friday night to sleep. Like usual I got up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water and use the restroom. What followed was not usual.
Tripping on the carpet that had crumpled itself in front of the toilet had me fall into the shower. My face was heading directly towards the faucet, and would have smashed it in. Luckily I’m fairly agile, and I rotated away to the side, but I was still falling, this time backwards. Crashing into the curtain I pulled each ring off the curtain pole, and would up smashing my head and back into the wall. Leaving a blood splatter, some hair, and perhaps some scalp in the process.
I laid there stunned for a few minutes, wondering if I was alright. After awhile of this I grew bored, and stood up. At least I had avoided damaging my face, but now I was concerned that I perhaps had concussed myself. Swaying slightly unsteadily I looked into the mirror to check for black eyes, a good signal of concussions, and found none there. Cursing such things, I went back to bed and tried to fall asleep again, not recommended for head injuries. Fortunately, or unfortunately for my own restfulness, I couldn’t get back to dreamland. Instead I stared at the ceiling for several hours, eventually giving up and picked up my tablet to read whatever it was I was reading the night before I wound up falling asleep.
Luckily I always have a backup of my books for whomever I’ve trusted for such things, so my latest book would have still seen the light of day, but I’m nowhere near finishing what I’m working on now. It’s been difficult getting into the right mindset to put words to page, but I’ve still worked on it, though only slightly since then.
May none of you have such things happen. But just in case, have a back up!
