I feel SO special! You have NO idea!


I cannot tell you the overwhelming response I have received due to my "broken ankle" I have had people tell me all sorts of things that crossed their minds while they were reading my post- like bringing me dinner, watching my kids, bringing me a wheelchair, giving me a massage, bringing me ice-cream, writing me a get well card, etc.... and NOW I know I can get ALL this by simply breaking my ankle:) WOW! I really do feel special- and well taken care of, even though it was a simple April Fools joke. I guess when they say- "It is the thought that really counts" that it isn't just a cheesy saying- that I really did feel a warm feeling in my bosom from reading the comments and getting phone calls- So thanks ya'll!

And - I wonder if it really DID happen- if those were just thoughts and then never acted on- would the thought count then?? Or does the thought only count when it doesn't really matter- because it really isn't your b-day or Christmas, or I'm not really sick, etc... hmmmm.... wonders for the wise!

ps- i really do hope to be back up to my normal blogging soon- the roller skating pictures are DYING to come out....

oh and pps- for those of you who were curious about the ankle- I googled "broken ankle" and searched images- and that was pretty much the only ladies ankle I found. The rest were hairy manly legs- that I don't think I could have gotten away with.

You're the inspiration for my joke. You really had me going on your ankle too. How creative are you? Getting pictures and everything!!
