Sh*t!

November 16th, 2010 (08:41 pm)

I had a bit of excitement today. I got knocked over by a car!

Literally.

It hit my knees, I head-butted its bonnet (thinking I was about to die, and yelling, "Shit!"), but somehow I ended up lying in the road in front of it.

All I have is a sore ankle. I didn't even graze my hands and knees. Someone called the police and an ambulance, but I decided not to go to A&E, or make a complaint, so that's that.

I drove myself home and I've been sitting on the couch all day, dazed but sort of euphoric.

But I'm going on holiday tomorrow so, unfortunately, I'll be limping round Krakow.

It's a little late to say 'take care of yourself', but please do! I hope you're in shape to enjoy Krakow all the same.

Thank you! I've got some Ibuprofen and some Freeze Gel :-)

:( I'm glad you're okay and hope you won't be too ache-y tomorrow.

I hope you're okay. That was a close call! I do think it's a good idea to go see a doctor and have a checkup (med student speaking), though.

The paramedics examined me and took various readings, so I think I'm OK, though my ankle is still a bit sore. But I can't believe how little I was hurt!

Not a Nice Guy

Yikes! Good thing you're okay. Reminds me of the time I got 'tapped' by a car that was backing up where it shouldn't have been backing up. I didn't get hurt, but I was mighty angry and yelled a lot at the oblivious ass behind the wheel.

Thank you It's scary, when you realise it's going to hit you, isn't it? The car came at me like a shark (it was sort of coming down hill). But the driver had made a genuine mistake & was very sorry!

Ouch!

Oh my goodness! Glad the paramedics gave you a clean bill of health though, although I can imagine you'll be a bit stiff.

Have a wonderful time in Krakow - my daughter went three years ago and had an excellent time.

Thank you! My ankle is stiff, and I'm back to limping, but I think everything's OK.

Krakow's a wonderful place. I'll try to take some photos & post them here.

Thank God you are OK? Are you sure you shouldn't have got checked by a doctor?

Thank you! The ambulance people seemed to think I was OK and my ankle does seem a lot better this morning. The rest of me's fine. I think I just rolled!

Good Lord

OMG. I'm very glad you're safe - that could have been really nasty.

Enjoy hobbling round Krakow, though.

I'm not going to make a joke about the virtues of having a hard head, but I'm glad you're okay.

I think you should have yourself double checked out by a doctor though, just in case. *hugs gently*

I think it was a hard head combined with a roundy body! Thank you! I seem a lot better this morning.

OMG!! Glad you're obviously ok enough to post - but watch out for head trauma symptoms!!!!

Thank you! I shall! (The first thing I said to the driver was, "Is my face OK?", LOL!) I was so lucky!
