Well, I just had to laugh at myself for this graceful moment..
I was filling out an application at a LTC/SNF, sitting in their nice little seating area in the grand dining room during lunch time. After an hour of rewriting my resume for them onto the facility's application and filling out about 8 essay questions about myself, I get stand up to hand my application to the secretary... Immediately I realize that my foot had fallen asleep, but I was past the point of no return and my brain was telling me to 'put my foot down before you lose your balance!' However, when I put my weight on my totally numb foot, my ankle just caves in my cute little pumps and I nearly fall over. I hobble/fall as best I to the arm rest of the chair I was sitting in, but I have already caused quite a commotion (I think I frightened a few little old ladies).
The secretary, a cna, and the director of human resources all rush over and ask if I'm ok, bless their hearts. I try to explain/laugh that my foot fell asleep and I didn't realize it until I stood up on it. Whoops! I'm at home 'rice'-ing it now, and just thought I'd share my clumsy moment with y'all!
(and I've been a ballerina for 20 years! jeesh!)
Have any funny/embarrassing/clumsy moments to share? I'm sure we all need a good laugh..
I was helping to do a transfer of a patient in the ER from the ambulance trolley to the bed. Leaned across too far, my trousers split from front to back. I didn't notice until someone was kind enough to point it out- an hour later!
