Not so Glamourous :: a smashed ankle :: can I be like a lady in distress then?
My plans of frolicking about
on the deliciously decadent long weekend
were brought to a halt yesterday,
when my husband inadvertently walked into my
delicately bent leg as I stepped into the shower.
A few hours in the emergency department,
umpteen x-rays and pokings of said ankle,
a pronouncement of
"complete bed rest for a week
and definitely no ladder climbing"
(an occupational hazard for an interior designer)
and here I am,
a lady in distress.
But I figure if I am going to be a lady in distress,
I may as well enjoy the sympathy factor to the max.
So while the family rushes about with
"Is there anything else you need, mother dearest?"
I shall be reclining,
in somewhat romantic fashion,
(as best as possible)
on the chaise,
and loving every minute of it!
