For you to ponder

I swear to you that the ridiculous amounts of time between blog posts has nothing to do with my new job.

This week it has everything in the world to do with the fact that someone in my house is now sporting a lime green cast on their broken arm.

I'll leave you to muse over who that might be while I go make dinner. Between dinner and So You Think You Can Dance I will tell you the entire story.

Is it:

A) Me, the only person I know of (besides Stacie) who fell UP the stairs to the Band room. More than once. Also the woman who is still plagued by intermittent attacks by the Carpet Monster who causes me to fall for no apparent reason whatsoever. I also fell INTO the dishwasher in junior high.

B) My husband who has been hit by a car while on a motorcycle.

C) My eldest daughter who has been compared to a newborn colt or Bambi when he was first born and fell splayed out on the ice while Thumper laughed his fuzzy cotton tail off.

D) My boy who is an 8 year old boy and related to me, which is dangerous in and of itself.

E) My youngest daughter who has fallen prey to the Carpet Monster and suffers from the spontaneous running into of walls.

I'd like to buy a vowel. So I'm going with E.
Lime Green, could be a boy thang, so I'm hedging my bet.

At any rate, lots of M&M's will help.

I'm sorry somebody is hurting. Get well soon.

I'm disqualifying myself, due to the fact that I know the answer, but still look forward to hearing the entire story, as only you can tell it. :)

Well, I'm going to use the process of elimination and guess that it's NOT B. Your husband being hit by a car while on a motorcycle would probably result in a eulogy, not a blog post. My husband rides a motorcycle, and every time he leaves on it I have to chase scary "what if" thoughts out of my head, because I know that accidents that are minor in a car are major on a motorcycle.

It's not A, because you wouldn't wear a lime green cast. Well, maybe you would wear it, but you probably wouldn't request it. I don't think.

It's gotta be one of the young 'uns.
