we do things differently around here

For most of you, Wednesdays are known as "Hump Day".
But in our humble abode, it's been renamed "Rump Day". At least for this week.

Yesterday, my Chicklet had the gym class from hell at last period. During which not only did she get boinked on the nose with a big ball (her pretty nose is fine)... but (and this is merely the only appropriate word I could insert and not me being a smartass -oops) she also went from the crouching frog position to a sitting position in Olympic record time.

So later this afternoon, we'll be making a car trek through snow filled, pot hole littered streets to go see an osteopath to have her very sore coccyx checked out. If she doesn't need valium after that car ride, I probably will.

How's that for her first day back from Christmas break? Oh Lord don't let it be broken...

Daisy said...

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

That's a rough day! Happy New Year...

VE said...

Come on...fess up...you wanted to use the "pain in the butt" joke on her, didn't you?

Brian o vretanos said...

Ouch. I hope she's okay. I always knew exercise was bad for you ;-)

ciara said...

Travis said...

I shall add my best wishes that Chicklet's posterior heals quickly.

Anndi said...

Akelamalu, she did wonders!

Daisy, thank you. She's much better!

Bud, thanks. And to you also.

VE, who says I didn't? Heh!

Brian, you are a wise man.

Ciara, no breaks! YIPPEE! I broke mine some years back and let me tell you, it's awful.

Travis, she's on the road to recovery.

Mimi Lenox said...

The Alice In Wonderland reference was quite apropro! I was glad to hear the news though.
Donut, anyone?

Her pride will be more scathed perhaps...

Anndi said...

Mimi, book reading adventurous and imaginative blue eyed girls falls... teehee!

She actually rode home from the appointment "sans" doughnut!

I believe you're right... pride indeed.

Ron said...

Absolutely LOVE the quote from Alice in Wonderland!

You are SO clever, twin!

SOOOOO glad to read that Chicklet is doing well and on her way to recovery!

Hopefully she won't be the butt of any jokes....sorry - couldn't resist. I trust she has her mother's resiliancy so I'm sure she'll bounce back... maybe 'bounce' isn't the best word to use here...I'm sure she'll be fine...

Charles Gramlich said...

That car ride certainly doesn't sound like a picnic.

Ouch poor Dear. My little Dude (8) came home with a fat cut lip from Gym...but he was allowed to make the perp his slave for the rest of the day! Awesome...he had to fetch stuff and carry his backpack.

I love the word coccyx don't you..
coccyx
coccyx
coccyx!

Bond said...

So what did the butt doctor say?

Dianne said...

hugs to chicklet and to you
I'm glad she's going to be OK

Desert Songbird said...

Um, yeah. Methinks your Chicklet and Starr's Kidlet are sisters from another mother.

Michelle said...

OUCH

My husband broke his coccyx ice skating as a teen. He assures me it is very ouchy.

Sad, butt... it is hard to take an injury in that region seriously, isn't it? So many jokes and puns... :-D

And the funniest thing is that this is the fourth blog I've been on this morning where the topic has related (in wild and various ways) to... butts!

It's starting to be seriously weird... and funny. :0)
