STAIRS

I've never been good at stairs. I never take my time, and I fall often. Going up, I usually don't lift my foot high enough and catch my toe on the edge. Going down, I usually put my heel too close to the edge and slip. One time when I was away at college, I came home for a weekend. I ran into the house and down to my dad in the family room, at which point I fell and came crashing down the flight of stairs. My dad just chuckled and said, "Sarah's home."

So tonight as I was walking up the stairs to class with my purse over one arm, my bag of class materials on the other, and a Taco Bell cup in one hand, it's no big shocker that I caught my toe on the step and crashed onto the landing. Since my hands were full, I didn't have any way to brace myself as I fell. The three Soldiers I was walking with were a pleasant change from my classmates in high school: rather than laughing and pointing, they immediately helped me up and made sure I was OK. Nonetheless, it was extremely embarrassing, and now the entire left side of my body hurts. I even have a nice big purple lump on the palm of my hand.

Only I could find a way to bruise my palm.

1 Sarah, Don't worry Sarah. That happened to me my freshman year in between classes. I think EVERYONE was walking towards me when I decided to bite it. But I didn't have the perks of three soldiers helping me up!! Hang in there, Purple Palm! Erin

2 It's an hereditary thing in my family. My sisters and I were teasing mom about it one night and she was like, "Fine, what else are you going to blame on me?" To which we started listing things like, wide hips, bad handwriting, no sense of direction (except for me, don't know where I got that from as my dad was the worst for getting lost). I don't think she really expected that response. Hang in there girlfriend.

3 I do the same thing all the time, only it gets worse during PMS. It's gotten to the point where I have to hold the rail walking up/down or I fall.
