chatterbox fall down, go boom!

My head hurts. Probably because I tried to split it open on the myrtle wood coffee table this morning. Cyclistrick was getting all geared up to ride to the train and was asking for goodbye kisses. I plucked myself off the couch (had been firmly planted in front of Le Tour) and wrapped my arms around his neck. The last thing I remember was saying "oooh, I'm lightheaded". Next thing I know, I'm on the ground twitching as the blood makes its way back to my head and Cyclistrick is standing over me looking very scared. Apparently he tried to catch me, but due to my extra 'leverage', he was unable to keep me up. I whacked the coffee table and the arm of one of our chairs on the way down. Owie!

I told him that maybe he should have put the helmet on me before kissing goodbye....

It's been a good 10 years since I had a nice pass-out. Usually, I catch myself and bend over briefly when standing up. Today, I was preoccupied with nuzzling and failed to stop the inevitable. Bummer.

vb - yes, he does make me a bit weak in the knees. Tee hee!

And for those who do not understand the physics, Ms. Chatterbox is taller than I, hence the extra leverage. As the one who saw it all happen, she did not hit the coffee table, but she did hit the leg of a rattan chair and the floor. Scary!! No more of that, Ms. C. :-)

ack!

glad nothing got broke on you. those head rushes are kinda fun when you can sit right back down on the couch.

but they're not fun when you pass out.

I hope your head and coffee table are ok.

Rick has that Mike Brady effect. Did you see fireworks just before you passed out?

ouch!

lauren - yeah, they can be fun in the right context (plopping back on the couch, for example).

chris - I didn't see any fireworks, I just remember it getting dark and my head feeling cold and then the floor!
