The best sprained ankle story ever!

I was sitting in my favorite chair this past saturday evening, with my feet up on the foot stool (that is actually a workout step) and decided to get up for a refill of my water (honestly!). When I pulled my right foot off of the stool and set it on the floor nothing happened. No pain, no numbness, not even an itch! This made me feel confident so I did the same with the other foot. Mid movement I heard a loud POP and there was PAIN. Oh boy was there pain! I had sprained my ankle, which was confirmed by a real doctor ( not the imaginary one that I usually visit).

How is that for a crazy story? I don't even know how it is possible to sprain an ankle while sitting down. WTF!!!!!

So anyways. This week I am a gimp. I am limping around and complaining of my pains. Pathetic.

But what is worse than being an invalid is being treated like one.

You see I have this amazing man in my life who seems to think that I should not be up doing things like cooking and dishes and vacuuming. He won't let me carry laundry up and down the stairs (although I did finally convince him that I could handle carrying the detergent). He even gets me refills on my water when its needed.

Now you all may not know this but I am a very stubborn person. I am most likely to do things that I have been told not to do. So I listen to him tell me that he will cook dinner and I should just rest, then I go ahead and cook anyways. I go get my own refills when he isn't quick enough to stop me. I even did some dishes today while he was at work. That will show him!

Happy Training,
Love Jenn

P.S. No you cannot have him. I am quite attached and rather enjoy doing things that I am told not to do. We work!

Oh no, the sprained ankle sucks! Hope it gets better soon.

Take advantage of what he's willing to do for you girl! I'd sit back and relax :)

O, if I wanted him, I could have him! Don't kid yourself, sister! Glaven Q. Heisenberg gets what he wants, and if what he wants is your man, then your man he shall have.

I could totally make him mine.

And how would you stop me with your sprained ankle and that pathetic detergent in your hands? Do you think that is any match for my bee-stung lips and come hither bedroom eyes?

Get real, sister!

I'd have him wrapped around my pinky like THAT - SNAPP!!

Lucky for you, I don't want him.

But if I did, I could have him!

Now that I have sufficiently established my status as Alpha Significant Other, I feel I can say:

Hope the ankle heals quickly, sister!

And, for the record, I could totally have that sprained ankle if I wanted it.

Lucky for you, I don't.

But I could

You ARE the winner of the Palm Grease. But, um ... I'm out of it. I had a lot, but it's gone.

Yes, there is a story behind this.

No, you don't want to know.

Hope you get better soon!
