I, the Humpty Dumpty



All those who missed my presence form the Blogs ville, I am obliged and those who dint, its okay!!
Why if you ask me, I would say, oh nothing too important. Okay, FYI, I have a clean track record of being prone to accidents- not hurting myself, but just stumbling upon things and causing them harm. This may be yes inferred as the 'you-know-who-to-blame-when-something-breaks'.
So keeping the same line of action, last week, I slipped off a staircase in my university- the one which I have climbed up and down for everyday- don't-know-how-many-times for the past almost 7 years now. And for a change, I dint break anything, not even my bones. Just in case, you are curious, I guess my heels struck somewhere on the first step while I was busy on a call- (oh it was my brother, stop thinking otherwise) and I slipped almost 12 stairs. I was too embarrassed even to open my eyes and look around if anyone had seen me falling and besides the pain, I was smiling on my own Idiocracy. Thankfully nobody was around, credits- exam time in the university. The outcome was a sprain in my right foot and sore right body for I was saved from tumbling down.
That was not enough I suppose- courtesy- my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to balance things, to add on, I managed a slip in the bathroom the very next day (okay, you can laugh aloud). This was a call for my left body. I fell on my left arm and dint break the bone again, just managed muscle pull and funny elbow.
I had no options but to stay tight in bed- tight because I could not move not even toss or turn, without anything to do but to watch the Idiot box. Yeah, again my lappie was not by my side, was gone for fixing.
The pain was stubborn and it stayed for over a week now. But still I managed to be on gtalk on my desktop for a while almost everyday, blogging on the old man is a nightmare though plus my left arm was unable to type.
Okay, if you are thinking why am I ranting about my injuries, in this post, then here is the reason: what I already had hypothesised beforehand and now confirmed is "When things go wrong, all you have for sure is Free Advice".
Why if you ask me, I realised that people do care for me though in their own funny ways.
Everyone I told about my misfortune of managing the two great falls in two consecutive days were ready with a crisp comment about my carelessness in the first place and then a crisp advice to take care and being careful in the second place.


Following are some of the reactions (few are copied as such from twitter):
A: I dint push you off, I swear, our disagreement apart, I would never do that!!
B: Have you started drinking??
C: You must try wearing flats sometimes.
D: What were you thinking?? Are you in love??
E: Get a "how to not slip for Dummies"
F: Theek se chala kar, no more kood faand (walk steady, no more jumping)
G: don't drink too much alcohol, nothing wrong with you, its the alcohol in you
H: your stars are not right- greh nakshatras
I: in the words of Sigmund Freud your Id is looking for someone to support you
J: Oh Shit!! how many tiles did you break??


Besides this, I had some really serious reactions and really concerned ones too..
Thanks for your concern people, I am all right now and my lappie is back again.
P.S. I'll soon catch up with all your blogs..

First to comment.. :)

muthu said...

Wow, gal u are kind a prone to accidents.. :)

well I am prone to misplacing things.. thats my addiction.

and yeah- the one thing that I am always sure is that -

People care, its just that they dont usually show it the way we want.


And yeah I missed you in blogville yaar...

welcome back.

cheers.

PS- oh and yeah, my free advice - Pl dont fall until otherwise you are in love. Not always prince charming will be there to catch u in his arms. Will he???

Tara said...

Oye! Richa's back! :D Missed you girl! :) And be careful ok! The description sounds quite painful eh? Get well soon, take care and God Bless. :)

Ria said...

Arnab Majumdar said...

Well, good to know that nothing's broken, and that you're alright. I don't wanna sound like any of those guys... but seriously, be a lil bit careful.

And greh nakshatras? Really, people believe that the stars have nothing better to do than making random folks fall down the stairs?!

Cheers... keep blogging...

Oops...being prone to accidents sucks. :(

I remember the last time I managed to have my shoulder ligament torn, everyone right from my friends, parents to the doctor and his compounder were loling away on heraing how it happened. No don't even ask!! :P

Though I personally am on the other side of the accident-prone spectrum, I know how bad it can be by association.

Anyway, happy resting and ranting. (feel free to blame the floor and stairs and me)
