We got a light dusting of snow in the early hours of the morning, so I wanted to leave a minute or two early for school in case the roads were slippery. In my haste to get out the door, I slipped and fell on the back porch steps. I reached out to break my fall, but only ended up hurting my hand and my arm.
After dropping my daughter off at school, I had to stop at the supermarket and pick up a few items. By the time I got there, the stomach cramps were killing me. The smell of the rotisserie chickens added to it, making me feel nauseous. I could barely stand the thought of walking through the meat department, but I had to get a package of sliced turkey. The woman who stocks the lunch meats just happened to be unloading a case of the Oscar Mayer turkey that is on sale this week. She's very friendly and wanted to talk about lunch meat with me, comparing the brands and telling me which was the best value for my money. Ugh! Who wants to think about, much less talk about, sliced meat when you've got stomach cramps and you're feeling queasy?
Eventually, I made it home and braved the back porch steps (without falling). I tracked snow in which melted into a puddle on the wood floor, left my keys hanging from the exterior lock without realising it, and slammed my finger in a cabinet door. On the bright side, sipping on a Coke has made me feel much better. I'm still cursing the bacon, though.
A Video To Make You Think
My brother and I have been exchanging emails with links to songs and interesting videos. He sent me a link to this video, recently, and it's been stuck in my head ever since. I thought I'd share it with you. It's a little bit "new age", but it makes you think.
From youtube: "This is a video I directed for spoken word artist Mipham. Mipham records albums, runs marathons and just happens to be a Tibetan Buddhist Lama."
Let me know what you think.
