Well, That Was Fun

We're having meetings in the Loop today and tomorrow, so I got up early to catch the Metra train. I was expecting to have some fun, because it's raining. I didn't anticipate quite how much fun.

After I boarded the train, I was walking down the aisle toward the back of the train, looking for a seat. And after crossing into a new car, there was a downslope.

I fell. And I appear to have a mild ankle sprain.

Some of the other folks helped me up and I sat down. I can walk, although it isn't a great deal of fun. And fortunately, I still had a pass for the shuttle bus which had rides left on it, so I didn't have to try to walk across the Loop in the rain.

Overall, this is not a good way to start the day. I expect it will get better.

Hopalong

The ankle is still plenty sore, although a good bit less sore since Dr. Bob called (daisy_knotwise had called and left a message for him) and asked me to roll down my sock so I could look at the poor swollen thing. It turns out that a rolled down sock is giving it just enough support to help.

Ice has also been strongly recommended.

I think I'll skip the trip to the Loop tomorrow. :)
