Walking Lessons

I tripped over my pajama pant leg this morning. Fell all the way down on the way to the bathroom. Have you ever fallen in a way that was just so juvenile, like a toddler could have done that better? What's funny about this is that I was riding on a thought so deeply, that I wasn't paying attention. In the mean time my big toe just wanted so badly to catch the inner fabric of the opposite pant leg and didn't want to let go. It left me in knotted carpet burned mess. None of it was graceful, just awkward. My cheek was the first thing to hit the ground after my knee. Are you picturing it yet? I hope so cause it was pretty funny. I don't think my cat thought so. She darted under the pool table because I'm sure in her eyes, a person my size compared to a tiny kitty falling from the sky to crush her was pretty frightening.
I'm not quite sure what to write about today. I actually just finished an entire blog about what makes a person worthy of receiving better in this life than the next person. I have many thoughts on this, and have had great conversations with people on this matter in the past, but I couldn't bring myself to post it quite yet. I still have some more thinking to do on the matter.
I don't have much time, but I will tell you this. I had some gluten free beer after making a delicious meal with a friend last night. It was pretty good considering I haven't really tasted beer at all in about a year. You see, I am gluten intolerant, as well as many other digestive complications. If you know me well, you know this about me. Though I have not been officially tested for anything due to my lack of insurance, it makes me feel better to not eat or drink certain things. This beer had no effect worthy of noting. Simply divine.
