I fell into the oven
Of all the things to fall into. This makes me have a question for you.
Connie and I were spending the evening at home. This is what new empty-nesters do, I guess. Anyway we were having a good ole time just being a couple. We were making pizza. One of my favorite meals.
She went up to get changed while I was going to put the pizza in the oven. The same one that I had preheated to 400 degrees.
My balance hasn’t been the greatest, but I hadn’t fallen … yet. At this point, I took our fresh-made pie and went to put it in the oven. I leaned in. And leaned over like a tea kettle.
Some of you already know that I’ve had further brain-bleeds. These bleeds cause damage that doesn’t fully get repaired. Some look at this and see what I’ve lost. Begrudgingly, at first, I now look at the silver linings.
- Some might say, “I can’t drive”. I say, “I have a car service”.
- Some might say, “I have to walk with a cane to see where I’m going”, I say, “I get to walk with a cane when I don’t have Connie to hold on to. The cane helps other people see that I have a disability”.
- Some might say, “I can’t see the beautiful sunset”. I say. “I experience the sunset in my own way”.
Here I go, leaning in. Leaning over. And falling in.
I panicked. In a spit second decision I put my hand on the outside of the oven, Unfortunately, that didn’t stop me. My strength isn’t what it used to be.
In the same split second I tried to stop by fall by putting my hand on the rack. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t in immediate pain.
Still going the wrong way, I started to lose hope. I didn’t know what to do. It was awful.
I landed on my knees. At this point I gave up. I wasn’t sure what else to do.
Finally, my motion stopped.
All of this happened in less than five seconds. So here’s the question.
“What’s the silver lining in this cloud?”
