Another "Tammi" Moment

I promise - I won't keep goin' on and on about this new mattress set - but this is so funny I had to share.

This morning was a bit "different" for me. Last night I set the coffee pot with ground coffee, not beans. So this morning instead of the sounds coffee grinder, alarm, coffee pot done (it beeps at me when it's done brewing) I got alarm, coffee pot done. I forgot what I had done and thought I over slept.

So I jumped out of bed. Except that I also forgot this mattress is 2x as high as the other one. You know how you sometimes misjudge a step? Yeah, well that's what happened. I hit the floor. With my body, not just my feet.

I layed there laughing until I was afraid I'd pee myself. In fact, every time I picture it I start laughing again.

I really am a morning person. I just can't make my body believe that.

But at least I started my day with a good laugh.

I hate when that happens. I've stumpled on steps doing that.

I know someone who shattered (yes, shattered) her ankle thinking there was one more step down than there really was.

Glad you just got a laugh out of the whole thing!

Why yes, I DO know how you can misjudge a step.

At least you fell out of the right side of the bed... :)

I did that once, except I was on the top bunk of a bunk bed, and thought I was on the bottom. Pretty much did the same thing as you, sat on the floor and laughed until I almost pee'd myself!
