The Life Unwired with Ben Combee


I'm starting to feel the pain from a fall I took earlier this evening. I was on one of my usual evening walks when I passed by a part of the sidewalk that's adjacent to some barbed wire fence. A part of the fence grabbed my pants, tripping me up and causing me to fall onto the sidewalk. I fell forward, with my hands, chest, and knees making contact with the concrete. I had the wind knocked out of me for a moment, but I then was able to sit up a little, get the barbs unhooked from my pants, and make my way back home.

So, what's the damage? The pants got ripped pretty badly on one leg, and I don't think they're worth fixing. The barbs poked my leg, but I don't see any real cuts. My palms were a bit scraped up and I'm starting to feel some aches in my wrists and knees. I might have a bruise on my chest in the morning, although I don't think it's too bad.

Here's to occasional clumsiness!
