Karma Smacks Me Again

Sunday night, Wizard and I were in the Jacuzzi, and I was showing him how I’ve gotten more flexible by lifting one leg at a time up as high as I could. I suspect this looked better in my head than in reality, but Wizard acted impressed.

I felt something suspicious deep in my right side, but I ignore it. Because, you know, I wanted Wizard to be impressed.

On Monday, I got up from my desk chair and Wizard–who was off work–says, “Why are you limping like that.”

Okay I thought about lying, but lying always turns out to be too much work.  Plus I know he’s getting worried about my arthritis so I have to fess up.  “It’s not my arthritis. I, uh, might have pulled something.”

I had his full attention.  Staring at me, he demands, “Pulled something where?”

I poured my coffee and muttered, “My right hip.”

“How…oh!” He starts to laugh. Catching his breath, he says,  “You pulled your hip showing off in the Jacuzzi!” Then he ROARS with laughter.

So glad I can amuse him. Seriously. It just makes my day.  But damn it, he’s right! I was showing off. All smug and proud because he’s not that flexible. Stupid Karma.

    Oh no, I feel awful for you. But sometimes you need to show off. It makes you feel good.
    Maybe if you get back in the Jacuzzi and stretch it out in small increments it will feel better. Or even better get the hubs to give it a rub down :wink:

    Viki, it’s better today, so don’t feel too bad for me! I’ve been stretching the muscle too and that helps a lot. But thanks for caring!

    Zoe, you’re welcome :-) I’m always happy to amuse when I can, LOL! I do this stuff so much, Wizard often threatens to put me in a cage of bubble wrap for my own safety.

    *gigglesnort* Now I have this image of you ensconced in bubble wrap and walking through your house bouncing off things just to hear the bubbles pop.

    Sorry for the pain, though. Ice and ibuprofen and then heat with gentle stretching and lots of jacuzzi time, with Wing Slayers and icy drinks. Yup. That’s what Dr. Silver prescribes! :wink:

    Sorry about karma sneaking up on you like that. It sounds like the time I broke my foot trying to goose my then-boyfriend. Karma’s a witch (and not the good kind).

    I think karma would be him pulling a muscle in his side laughing at you! Rotten Wizard!!

    Sorry Jennifer that you were hurt……bet you will think twice next time. And if Wizard wasn’t being such a dude….he could have at least eased your pain. :wink: But I’m glad your getting better.

    Heather, thanks! I’m much better! And Wizard is a total dude–although he does anything he can when I’m in real pain. This was just a minor thing :-)
