My backkk.....

I fell yesterday!! Yes, I fell! I was asleep under the stairs, on this carpeted platform thing we have at school, when i crawled out and attmpted to stand up.

**CRASH**

Purse contents scatters....

Fall to knees under heavy contents of stupid backpack....

Can't pull myself up! lol

Two guys (horrifyingly..is that a word!?) assist me with standing...while some other poor guy shuffles the contents of my purse back together.

AWFUL!

In my defense:




My backpack weighs 27lbs! AND THIS IS A SKINNY SCALE that weighs LESS then the dr's WRONG scale. :)

Tis the reason for my fall and my yummy back spasms I presume.

Some of the most beloved females I know can barley navigate a single flight of stairs without crashing down.
Must be a sign of inward grace and impeccable character.

I've fallen and I can't get up! was there a 2 year old in your backpack?

wow, that is a heavy bag! My 2 year old weighs only slightly more than that and I can barely lift her let alone carry her about all day or whatever.

Take Care

Wow, that IS heavy, and I have to agree...my son is 20lbs and he gets heavy after 10 minutes!!!

You are way too young for this sort of thing. Take it easy with the backpack, ok? :)

seriously, 27 lbs is bad for your back. you might end up having osteoporosis in the end. try getting a locker if you dont have one yet.

that was also my problem back in college. good thing that now I am a grad student, i have my own office, and i can simply stack all the books i need on my shelves.

I am sorry but when i first looked at the picture of the scales I thought YOU weighed 270 lbs. Been packing away one too many bags of chips there, Missy.

27 lbs????!!!! What are you... a sherpa?

Kari said...

Well no wonder....
I've been there, falling down - in fact, I still do. And, I once had ONE book that weighed 27lbs.

Kristen said...

as a fellow student..and a non-traditional, um older student, you have my sympathy. Yesterday while I was leaving work with my shoulder bag, I made the comment that I felt as if I was going to throw my back out. Gotta love those textbooks. (Not to mention all the other crap you have to carry)
