So sorry about the fall!!! I'm such a clod that I've stopped wondering about my bruises. Just yesterday I was in the shower, wondering how in the name of doG did I get a bruise on the top of my foot???

And you've been tagged with a meme on my blog :-)

OK, you are brilliantly funny, my friend. This cracked me up (I have a bad habit of laughing at human clumsiness, too, including my own!). And Senna would SURELY pick carpet gnomes. We are all about gnomes right now...
