So today started out beautifully;
was feeling great!
was going to go to the library before work
as both the library and work are in walking distance
I have a blackberry for work and was reading an email
from my boss while walking.
And I failed to see the curb and fell,
bloodying one palm a bit, skinning both knees
and making a hole in one of my pant legs.
My blackberry went flying out on the sidewalk in front of me;
I remained calm, picked myself and the
phone up and kept walking,
bleeding hand held by other hand
to the library.
Got disoriented, went one street to far,
ended up talking to some young 20 year olds in trouble,
needing food, Lord have mercy on them,
and then went to the library.
To find out that the library did not open till ten.
Walked to work, hand holding hand.
I work on the 14th floor.
The elevators are being redone and none of them were working.
Holding blackberry in injured hand,
I managed to look up MPOW phone number,
explain and then go home
bandaid hand, knee, change clothes,
eat some food
and go back to work.
now entails going back to library
(books due and more to pick up)
dropping pants at tailor to be fixed
(they were good pants!)
buying a sandwich
dropping off heavy book bag at home
back to work,
eating sandwich as I work at my desk.
And that's how my 4th Friday and end of my
first month on the job
I believe thanksgiving to God and my Guardian Angel are in order...
