Rassum Frassum Brussel Sprouts

Today was the kind of day I don't care to repeat. I had to go to the all-day computer software demonstrations at City Hall again. Besides being boring and keeping me from my work, I got injured. Last time I was down there I slipped on ice and fell flat on my butt and hurt my pride.

Today I was carrying a ceramic mug, plate and a few other items (cleaning up my table) and someone backed into me. The cup went flying and crashed to the ground right in front of me and shattered. The lady who backed into me apologized, I said, "no problem, it's kind of crowded" and proceeded to bend down to pick up the pieces. Someone else helped me. After picking it all up and depositing in the trash I stepped out to use the restroom. My left shin was really hurting and felt cold. I got to the restroom and realized I had a V-shaped cut into my shin. I think a piece of the cup bounced up and gashed my leg. I had blood running down my shin and onto my sock. It quit bleeding quickly but my shin has been really hurting ever since. I think I really bruised it good.

So that was the end of my exciting day, except it happened at the beginning so my leg hurt the rest of the day, I had blood on my pants and the demonstration was so boring that I had to keep myself from falling asleep. Then it went over by half an hour.

Kind of pitiful hunh? People are without homes, food and water in Japan and I'm complaining about a little cut on my leg and an extremely boring day. I guess I'll take my boring day over the "excitement" they are having in Japan.

Sorry that you got hurt. I would have had a hard time too at the computer meeting, maybe the pain helped you stay awake?
