Put your visual caps on, you’re going to need it.
Yesterday our BFF’s invited us over to their house for dinner. It was great. We ate a delicious dinner, played a little corn hole and was having a relaxing time. My BFF and I decided to retreat to her gazebo while our hubby’s and the kids played.
She has a hammock strung quaintly underneath and we decided that it was a good place for girlie chat. We laid on it so we faced each other and talked about flowers, and her son’s wedding, and decks and blah blah blah girlie stuff.
Meanwhile during our conversation sawdust started falling out of nowhere onto my head. It happened a few times and we determined it was a carpenter bee burrowing overhead. Then as if that wasn’t enough something pooed on my leg. Again it came from above. My BFF and I had a little freaking out moment which had to have looked funny and by the end of it we were pretty much leaning here and there in the hammock.
We had been in there probably an hour or so just having a good ol’ time talking and laughin’ and just chillin’, when we realize that it was getting late and we all needed to get up early in the morning so we both started to get up………… and then it happened. The hammock broke and we both ended up on the ground. WHAM!
Wood is hard when you’re over 40. My hubby says we were only 12 inches off the ground but my BFF and I will argue that it “felt” like much more. Anyway if it wasn’t so funny we probably would have realized how much pain we were in. But you have a couple of women tangled up in a hammock with their legs in the air and you got funny. I don’t care who you are. Our husbands did well not to laugh as they were concerned for us, but we were laughing so hard it was hard to tell if we were actually hurt.
With a little help we were able to get up and walk in the house. Here’s what they all got to see as I was twoddling away.
Now I’m not usually one to show you a picture of my butt but it was pretty funny. To top off the night I got the imprints of her hammock on my white shorts. LOL!
So lets’ recap:
Sawdust on head
Got pooed on
And ruined white shorts.
But wait, there’s more. After we got home and I was icing my back, I got up to do something and pulled a muscle in my right shoulder which now hurts more than my back does.
Oh how I love being over 40.
So did you get the visual? It’s okay to laugh. We have to laugh about it. I just wish we could have gotten a picture of our faces as we were falling. LOL!
I’m sure today is going to pale in comparison so I think I’ll just take it easy.
Have a lovely day my friends.
