Trip Up

When you use a Wii Fit, you take little tests to check your balance.

Sometimes I do fine... other times my Wii Fit gets a bit sassy with me and makes some rude remarks regarding my balance (or lack thereof).

"Well, your balance isn't your forte. Do you trip over your feet when you walk?"

"Does your body not do what you tell it to?"

See? The Wii Fit is a little bitchy.

(Not that I don't appreciate inanimate objects with a little attitude; see Samantha.)

But I always just tell it to suck it and then go on with my day.


I did trip over my own feet today. I was walking the dogs and somehow managed to twist my right ankle AND stub the big toe of my left foot.

At the same time.


Your guess is as good as mine. All of a sudden I was falling, the pavement approaching my face at an alarming rate, and I somehow was able to stop myself from completely crashing into the sidewalk. I believe that I managed to use the dogs weight to counterbalance my forward motion... I actually may have choked them in the process. At least I was able to avoid a broken nose.

(I'd like to point out that the dogs didn't miss a beat. Would it kill them to be a bit concerned for their Momma?)

And so:

Wii Fit: 1

Ally B: 0

I hate when machines know me better than I know myself.

I blame the damn wind for my loss of balance... or at least a rouge (albeit invisible) pebble.
