I’ve had a really bad month. Seriously.
It started with a second degree burn on my thigh. It was during a snowstorm and I spilled hot liquid onto my iPhone and naked leg.
Worried about the phone, I rushed to clean it off. Seconds later I realized my flesh was being melted.
I jumped in the tub, turned on cold water, snapped a picture and texted a doctor friend who told me to go to the hospital. Well, unable to put on pants, because my car was buried by two feet of snow, I called an ambulance.
The technicians arrived, and I was embarrassed. They took me to the hospital and covered my pantsless body with a blanket for modesty. When I saw the doctor, he asked how it happened and I simply replied, “I wasn’t being mindful.”
A week later, I was making raw vegan brownies when my blender suddenly started to smoke. Black liquid poured from its base. There were sparks. Then all was quiet. My hectic energy managed to blow up a blender….
The next day, I woke up early after a goodnight sleep. I hopped in my car to get to my first yoga class of the day. I pulled out of my spot and noticed there was snow on the window. I rolled it down, brushed off the snow. I got honked at and I was startled. The next thing I new, my car had landed on someone’s rose bushes. Somehow I had managed to accelerate enough in 20 yards to jump a snowbank and have my car land splat on a neighbors lawn. It just didn’t make sense.
I called 911 to report the accident.
