2 downs and slip  by joysabin

2 downs and slip

Walking is good for me so I go. I must admit that I should remember to put on my yaks (clip-on ice cleats) but I am obstinate, stubborn, and just plain lazy most days. I went down last evening but am just fine. I didn't see the patch of ice on the sidewalk so I fell. Thank goodness landed on my most cushioned portion so no harm done except to my pride.

Bendy was kind enough to demonstrate my stupidity and gracelessness.

For the season, I am 2 falls, 1 slip - no harm done- maybe next time I'll just bring the silly yak-tracks with me.
I'm impressed you can do the splits like Bendy Man!!!

Yes, put on your yak-tracks!

The pride hurts pretty much too :)

Wear your yak-tracks! Only takes second. Take care

I am a slip and fall gal too. Be careful out there!

Nice of him since he seems to have no cushy parts at all.

Oh, no!

Glad you were not seriously hurt. Nice shot.

Glad you are ok. I have Icebugs (boots with ice cleats) and
I swear by them. Have taken a lot of spills over the years and much prefer the traction!

@amyk I am, just being careless. The sidewalks are a hit and miss thing here, some are really clear and others not so much. I have put my yaks in my jacket pocket now :):)

@eudora Falling when only my dog is around, is better. She is too small to really be of much help but the lick on my face made me feel better.

@themusketeers This year has been bad for ice, the daytime melting but the temps at night just re-freeze it all. I am usually much better at avoiding the ice just didn't see it in time.

@francoise He doesn't does he, never really thought about it. My softer spots make up for his lack :):)

@mzzhope I usually am. I was feeling frustrated late evening before dinner and thought that a walk would help. I should have known not to but when I mention the "W" word to my dog, all bets are off and she needs to go.

@judithtb Just a bruised ego but that heals fairly quickly. :):)

@ziggy77 They're in my jacket pocket now. I need boots that have them that I can flip a button or lever and the spikes pop out as needed. I can dream...

@angelikavr It does but I should have known to not walk and not being paying attention where I was walking. Hind sight is always so clear...

@jernst1779 Yes, I should. I am being cranky about this... Being a grown up is sometimes just no fun at all.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond He is a most flexible one. I am just glad that his facial expressions are not so noticeable....

And bendy man has taken a fall too. I'm glad you're Ok after your mishap - these things always happen so fast and can be so traumatic.

@robz He is much younger so his oops-es don't seem to bother him as much. I'll be more careful, until I'm not but such if life :):)
