Anne Balboa or Me and My Shiner or( Best) Black Ice and Gravity
I found out Thursday night that black ice is fast to bring you, not to your knees, but to your face. In my case it was face to frozen concrete before I could even reach out my hands. That stuff is wicked. Mary says that I was hurt so badly because i am so darn tall that I fell from a great distance. Although I wasn't really lucky - luck would be no fall at all - I suppose it could have be very much worse so I wear my shiner with gratitude...and heck, maybe a little pride.
This, of course, this will not reflect well on T. at the New Years Day party we will attend together tomorrow!
