So, this morning I'm walking the self-imposed mile to campus. It's a slight down hill--easy walk for this portion. Then, not 25 yards into the trip, my toe catches a uneven piece of pavement. Running forward with my body at a near 45-degree angle to the ground--the down hill ground--and a 20 pound (or so) back pack on my back, I realized all hope was lost. The ground rushed up, slammed into my knee and my nose...yes, my nose. Thankfully, it did not hit hard enough to break the nose. It's just bruised and ever so slightly blue. The knee looks much better than it did this morning, though it is swollen and scraped. I'll recover, but I'm thinking that the waking up process tomorrow morning is going to be a bear.
