stumbling from ralphs

So yeah coming back from the library, stopping off at the neighborhood Ralphs with some soy milk and a baquette, feeling good about my neighborhood and the fact that I was able to walk both ways without killing myself.. I guess I was congratulating myself too soon.. I tripped over an imaginary sidewalk crack and stumbled without catching myself, landing on my knees and palms so yeah.. if you saw some fat ass raccoon tripping over her own momentum, that was me.

I guess I'd rather rip my flesh up more than drop my library tote and groceries. As it was I dropped the groceries anyway. Not a biggie except the baguette kind of slipped partially out of the bag.

I went on the Ralphs side of Hope so I wouldn't have to deal with low hanging branches and spiders and pigeon pooh. Instead I got bloody kneecaps and detrious to clean out of my palms. nice.


I'm really annoyed but now I'm just really embarrassed. Luckily I saved the ol' lady crying with humiliation til I got back to the apartment and started pouring the hydragen peroxide on my bloody parts.

That comment about a racoon falling over brought to mind the Ghibli Studios film "Pom Poko" about Racoons. No doubt you've seen the film and enjoyed it, as I know you're a fan of studio Ghibli films.

hey there! =) yes, yes.. seen it! have it.. not my fave but it was alright. We named our girl cat Kiki after "Kiki's Delivery Service" (Jiji being a boy cats name in the film). She knows her name well though. =)

Hoping you & family are well! =)

Me, I've since recovered from my embarrassing accident. Just a little scarring and an invisible bruise that won't go away. =)
