Monday Memories


Monday Memories: Did I ever tell you about the time I was taken to the Emergency Room from a track meet?

In high school, I was on the track team. No, I wasn't a good runner, in fact I hated running. I did field events...high jump, long jump, and triple jump. I wasn't half bad either, won a few medals here and there. Anyway, at one of the meets, I was doing high jump and had one jump left. I ran, jumped, and SPLAT- completely overshot and MISSED the landing mat and came down on the concrete! Ouch! I wasn't hurt too bad, believe it or not! But, my coach wanted me to go to the Emergency room anyway, just in case. So my parents, who were luckily in the stands, came down and got me and drove me to the Emergency Room. I escaped with just some bumps, scrapes, and bruises. I think I was more embarrassed than anything! lol

Oh, that sounds like it hurt, but I bet you were embarrassed more than anything.
