Are you OK, ma'am?

I think I broke my toe, but I didn't admit it right off. That would have been too humiliating.

So, when the security guard heard a huge BIFF just behind him, he stood up and took notice. That's what happened yesterday. I was at a conference center with one of my co-workers, walking through the lobby, when I did a little face plant. I just tripped over the transition from tile to carpet. (I know most of you can't even imagine, but those transitions are hard to get over.)

I was carrying a laptop, notebook, and my wallet. All of them went flying. I just stayed on the floor for a few moments while I checked to ensure that nothing was broken. My co-worker and the security guard were very concerned with my well-being. I said I was fine, got up, and walked out with my head held high. I got a good laugh out of it with my co-worker as well.

When I got back to my office, the throbbing started in my toe. It's the one next to my baby toe on the right foot. It just kept hurting worse and worse. Then I started getting concerned that I wouldn't be able to drive home. I sucked it up and got home just fine though.

Then I told the DH about it and he got a good laugh about it too (after the obligatory sympathizing). Now he knows how really clumsy I am. And I really am clumsy.
