How my knee learned that desks are hard immovable objects

Writing a blog post every day can be fun if you have stuff to write about, but pretty arduous if you run out of things. Maybe that has something to do with my life right now. I’m ending one job, starting another on Monday and my kids are at their Dad’s. There’s not much to write about and my creativity is lost somewhere in my brain (it happens sometimes), but it could have something to do with the fact that I am far more interested in reading than I am in writing right now. Besides, how interesting is my life really? Especially today when all I feel like I’ve done is rage at my computer over emails from the person who took over my job and is quite literally…

Well, I suppose no one really wants to know about all of that.

Instead, I thought I would regale you with a funny story, even if it was something incredibly painful and will definitely leave a bruise.

There I was, sitting at my desk, reading my iphone (I purchased a book yesterday) when I decided to cross my legs. Little did I know that the desk had other ideas. A loud crack later and I almost fell out of my chair, writhing in pain. My co-worker decided to be funny, and it was actually so funny I was laughing as tears were pooling in my eyes from the pain.

“Did you just hit the desk with your knee? What did the desk ever do to you?”

Bending over as a white light enveloped my vision, I gritted out, “The desk was in my way. And it’s still there.”

Desk – One

My Knee – Zero

  1. Sounds like a knee-dy desk. Heh. Heh. We all have stories. Sometimes I find I just need to meditate on what’s going on in life to find them. Often times they’re make believe. Because I like playing pretend. What are you reading?

    • Yeah, my knee isn’t so happy right about now.

      The crazy part about it, is once I start writing, I usually end up with a ton of other ideas; it’s more just the motivation to come up with something that I want to write about and I think people will want to read.

      I am currently reading “Gone Girl”. I’ve heard mixed reviews but definitely wanted to read it before I see the movie (if that even ends up happening).
