I can barely put a thought together today because all of my focus is on the pain in my right ankle.
I logged late hours at my trampoline gymnasium last night and, in a tired state, came down with an awkward twist on my right foot and ankle.
It was a misguided stunt.

Bouncing on a trampoline, I launched myself high into the air, so high that I became frightened. My arms flailed above me until my knuckles clanged against steel. The rafters!
I wrapped my arms around a beam and remained there stuck to the ceiling of this cavernous gymnasium with approximately thirty trampolines below.
I cried for help, but at the late hour, not a soul heard me. After fifteen minutes of hovering high above the quilt of trampolines, I forced my mind to confront the reality that I must drop to the floor without aid.
It took twenty eight Mississippis for me to summon the courage to release my grip on the rafter. I screamed as I descended, and my feet began turning toward the ground like a house-cat who has just missteped from the roof of a ranch home. As I landed, my ankle buckled and the pain shot to my throat and pulled my vocal chords tight so that they could not vibrate to sound.
Shock, you might say.

And now, here I am, attempting to help you climb the mountain of information on this website with an elevated foot that looks like it's been painted purple and inflated to assist a novice swimmer in the deep end.
Make no mistake, dear friends. Trampoline-ing is dangerous business!
