It wasn't going to be me, but I will now confidently say that bathtubs are a threat to humanity.

Especially when you slip and fall in one, and when the left side of your ribs lands on the edge of the bathtub.

Mother-%&#!%@!!!!!

:'( :mad: :-[

I'm trying to be all "writer" about this...."Oh, I can't move, so now I can lay here and write all day, it's so magical! It's serendipity!! ;D ;D"

Screw that, I wanted to play tennis.

:-[

I can't even watch hilarious clips on youtube because the pain from laughing is brutal.

Nor can I breathe heavily/cry, which means erotic or cheesy movies are black-listed, as either would result in one of the aforementioned physical states.

So I guess I can just watch neutralized, moderately interesting propaganda from the entertainment industry.

Hooray.

Oh, and read books.

Fine.

Hope everyone else is having more fun on my behalf! ;D ;D ;D

My sympathies-- that sounds awful!  I had surgery a couple of months ago, and I kind of enjoyed the requirement that I lie on the sofa and read for a couple of days.  Pain sucks, but there are worse things than having to be inert for a couple of days, I guess.

I hope you feel better soon!

So sorry to hear about the nasty slip/fall, Romi. I hope you feel all fixed and mended very soon!

That bathtub of yours has a lot to answer for. When yu're feeling better I'd give it a stern talking to.

@Kathleen I hope you feel better soon too, and thanks!

@EllenFisher there are certainly worse things, and considering my dad broke BOTH his arms at once last month, this is much lower on the list of pain/functionality, it just sucks when FOR ONCE a Canadian long weekend brings with it some beautiful weather, and all these plans were made to "get all up in it" ;) Oh well, I can still lay on a chaise, so I'll do that later :)

@Andrew that tub is getting a major beat-down once I'm all tough and healed :mad: , thanks for your kindness though! :)

@Todd thanks for the clip; once my ribs are all numb by the next fresh round of ice I'll watch that! :)

Damn, Romi!

I hope you at least got some good drugs out of the whole ordeal.
Dope yourself into a foggy oblivion and read something good.  :p

Oy, Romi! Thank God you're ok. I am so scared of doing that! Remember when Liz Lemon realized that if she choked on her microwaveable dinner, no one would find her? This happens to me with my cats and stairs. Also lawn mowers. And the other weekend I managed to smack myself in the face w a 2x4. And one time I tried to wash nicotine stained walls w a bleach solution, not realizing that nicotine and bleach react to form dioxin, which I think is the primary ingredient in mustard gas? It smelled vaguely Battle of the Somme-ish in my living room, so I believe it.

I am also hoping they gave you good drugs, and plenty of them. Did you break your ribs? When do you get to move again? Fingers crossed for you!

Last time a friend broke some ribs I had the best fun ever making him laugh. It was hilarious watching him try and laugh in a restrained, controlled way, a kind of 'huhuhu.' *sigh* Happy days. As I can't hear you make that funny laugh, it would be pointless.

Bathtubs are more lethal than sharks, btw. I haven't actually checked the stats but I'm willing to bet on it. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water. ;) Best of luck healing nicely.

@Dara thanks! Getting better every day :)

@Shana I'm on drugs for two weeks but so far they just give me tummy rumblings so EFF THAT.. :mad:

@T.J. thanks, it could've been SO much worse! :eek:

@genevieve I had such a conflict of interest feeling worried for you and your mishaps but also trying not to laugh! ;) PS: Liz Lemon is my guru in life!!! ;D

@JF Hillborne hope you're feeling better after the surgery!

@Chris Northern I was unfortunately watching something funny on TV (it wasn't actually a comedy, just a guy in an 80's movie with a horrendous perm) and the laughter was SEVERELY punishing... :eek:

@Ben I know, I'm such a hack ;)

Anyhoo, back to work, on pain meds, and the x-rays should come back negative any time now...I mean they have to be negative, otherwise I wouldn't be able to move! ;) Thanks for all the get-well wishes!

A rubber mat with suction cups under it is a a bathtub user's best friend. I invested in one recently when the bathtub floor was getting slippery.

Bwahahaha I know your pain. A fat lapdancer, tripping on E, fell on me and broke my ribs, many years ago. While healing (I looked like I had black and blue eggs in my torso!), I went for a sunbed session, not realising the pain pushing the lid up would incur, and spent several long minutes trapped inside LOL.
