And humpty dumpty had a bit of a fall.
Slipped in the temple this morning right on my ahem lower back, hurt it.
Well. It has been raining and the circular path that one takes around the God of wisdom and the arts, Shri Ganeshji, had a sort of a jute carpet that was wet as well.
To cut a long story short, the adipose cushioned the bones, that fall was a direct hit all right.The hospital that I went to is run by missionaries with Spanish aid. The X ray is fine, shd be back at work in a day or so. No spinal injury.

They’ve prescribed painkillers and taking things easy for a while.
We have a saying in my part of the world- the blow of a sword was bypassed with that of a needle.

Am good. Now off to rest.

Good that you are not badly injured.

Hmmm, what if you would have fallen in the temple of the god of fight and war? Not to think about ...

twilite- ji. hukum sarkarrrrrr. dilliwale ko sarkaar boltein na!

shiv- extremely lucky. horrible the fall was and stunned me with the world whizzing.my side hurts, myospaz tid zindabad.

mago- the God of destruction is Shani. How that affects one depends on the individual horrorscope, and in mine he has a kind presence. So...

Ouch! There's easier ways to get painkillers you know.

Hope you are feeling better. I expect you to be shaking it like a temple dancer in about a week or so. :>

portia- I was reading how older kids these days no longer use standard cuss words, they say somehting mundane like Bob Saget! instead. smart, no?

proxima- if only they were prescription only painkillers of the oxycodone variety, but alas...
A month away from walking straight, till then Im a gnome.
