Ouch! Oh. Ugh… garr.. crap.. #$#!% my LEGS! (I think they just broke!) oops oh OHHH! arghh. OHNOOOOO.. pain! pain! oh. noise! snapping, scratching… OUCH!! too fast! TOO FAST!


so…. will I survive?

Dunno. I wish I had more confidence in my gumption. At the very least, this is going to be a very difficult and long road to recovery; would someone please turn up the lights?

This is nothing like I envisioned things to go. I had a reasonable, responsible plan. I saw bright LEDs at the far end of the tunnel. I had all my bases covered… the time was flying by like nobody’s business. I was settled and resolute.

And then…

Well… And then the Great Universe decided that I needed a wake-up-prodding to hasten my jump out into the abyss.

Thanks, Great Universe… Thanks for nothing.
