I bought a new clay pot and and bunch of coleus. Since the the supplies I needed were in the garage, I put the pot together there. Six plants and a bunch of dirt later, it was looking pretty good. It just needed some mulch. I always mulch my outdoor pots as it helps keep them moist. It also keeps the dirt from splashing out during rainstorms or waterings.
Instead of bringing the mulch to the pot, I decided to carry the pot to the wheelbarrow full of mulch on the other side of the garage. I had to walk out past the cars and then go back in. Big mistake.
The garage floor is maybe an inch higher than the driveway, if that. I've walked in and out of the garage hundreds, if not thousands of times. I didn't do so well this time.
Have a nice trip!
Do you know how many things you think of in that time between tripping and hitting the ground? A lot.
I hope this pot doesn't break.There were more things I thought of in those two seconds. Really.
I don't have time to go to the hospital if I get hurt, there's too much to do for the party.
Don't hit your face and break any teeth! (That's my mom in my head. She broke her front two teeth as a teenager when she fell roller skating.)
I hope the bruises don't show.
Ugg, I'm going to have to redo this pot.
Did the plants fall out?
That's the snow blower there, don't land on it and break it.
The good news is that I wasn't badly hurt. I had a few aches and pains and a bruised ego.
The better news is that the pot didn't break!
