Have you ever been walking and minding your own business and then all of a sudden the sidewalk trips you?

Just so you know, I laughed when you did that. :)

  • I have problems with the floor, ground, etc. It doesnt matter if its the smoothest surface around, something always jumps up and grabs my foot and throws me down. Not gracefully either, lol...

  • Yes, and like the idiot I am, I turn around to see WHAT tripped me. There's never anything there.

  • Well, that's mean because last time I did that I fell so hard I broke my ankle and was all alone on the corner with no cell phone and 4 blocks from home. I almost passed out when my blood sugar dropped from the shock and had to accept a ride home from some buy in a business suit that saw me fall and pulled over to see if I was okay.

  • problem is that I like to read as I take a leisurely walk (old habit since I was a little girl) and I end up walking into trees and bushes....sometimes the middle of the I live far enough away from busy-ness that I don't have to worry about being run over.

  • Shoot, I do that all the time. The sidewalk can be smooth as silk and I'll find a way to trip.

  • OP: I am so glad I am not alone in this! I was walking down my perfectly clean hallway and wham, the wall jumped in front of me and I fell down. No excuses, nothing in my hands, nothing on the floor.Just good old clumsey me!
