At five o'clock this morning, as I lay in a crumpled, disoriented heap at the foot of my living room stairs, gasping for breath-- you know, due to the whole slipped, missed the last step, landed flat on my back, and cracked my head on the stairs thing?-- after tiptoeing down the darkened stairway in my bare socks in a misguided, not to mention foolhardy, attempt to avoid waking TGIM and the kiddos by turning on the light, I remember thinking to myself, "Wow, so that's what whiplash feels like!" and "GREAT. Now I'll never know who killed Felix and a busload of kids on Veronica Mars! And did Duncan have sex with Kendall? And, hey, are my neck and upper torso supposed to be all tingly like that? It is very likely I have suffered a concussion. And will Logan and Veronica ever work it out? HUH?! And, whoa, I hope I don't spew, because urgh!"
Which seems like an awfully long thought to think when one is sprawled on one's ass struggling to breathe, ears still ringing from head meeting stair, backpack tossed and lost somewhere in the darkness, coat and shoes strewn all willy-nilly, wondering if one has broken one's neck and will be dying forthwith and posthaste. I mean, shouldn't I have been thinking of my CHILDREN? And TGIM?! Honestly. What kind of heartless mother and wife AM I?! Huh? Right?! GOSH!
Whatever. Thinking of them is what got me into the whole mess in the first place.
That being said, I have a headache, y'all.

You ARE into Veronica Mars. I hope the headache goes away.
The butler killed Felix. Sorry if I ruined it for you.

Ouch, indeed! At least you have those cool new biker boots to ease your pain. Maybe you oughta kick the shizz outta the stairs?
Hope your head feels better, hon. HUGS to you.
(Word verification is skyuuooh. Which is probably the sound you would've made, had you been talking about the sky when you missed that last step.)

"Whatever. Thinking of them is what got me into the whole mess in the first place." NICE.
If I had to be up at 5:00 am, I would have a headache, too. And not from falling but from the SUCKDOM that is being up at 5:00 am.
Feel better, babe.
