I had a bit of a fall

Posted 05-03-2014 at 03:40 PM by Wings of Fire
Two days ago I was running to the store to get some groceries. I was trying to catch a green light and managed to fall straight to the ground in the middle of the road. When I was undazed enough to look, the only thing I could understand was my laces were somehow tied together. Not wanted to put the poor motorists out (The light had already gone red) I literally crawled across the road.

When I got to the other side, I found out that the loop from my right shoelaces had caught on the metal bendy thing you clip shoelaces on to on the left shoe and my fall was so hard and sudden that my right laces had literally been ripped apart rather than give.

So I unfastened it and wobbled myself up and then two policemen came over to me, on their guard, thinking I was drunk, dangerous and/or homeless. It took them about ten minutes to ascertain I wasn't a danger to myself or others (In fairness to them, they were polite about it and just doing their job) and by that time the shop had shut.

So when I came back home I found out I'd sprained my shoulder and cut open my thigh so for the most part I've been lying in bed in pain for the last couple of days

Get well soon Joe.

Also when you're feeling better tell me so I can laugh without feeling bad. I mean, you crawled across the road, dude.

Dude that sucks. Hope you get better soon

If I were you, I wouldn't wear those shoes again. I'll just get paranoid about falling again D:

I fucking hate shoelaces, I usually just get shoes that fit perfectly and just shove the laces inside the sides of it. No more trouble after that.

Shit that's horrible. Hope you have a fast recovery. Two weeks down the line it might be quite amusing.

took a bit of a tumble, eh?

seriously though, that whole ordeal sounds awful. barely or not being able to walk is the most crippling thing if it makes you feel any better though my feet are blistered and beyond exhausted from walking with no shoelaces for hours (can barely walk), so i guess i kind of sort of feel your pain

yeah fuck shoelaces. get better soon.

Falling in the middle of the road could have ended nastily.

Hope you get better soon.

heal up soon man!

i know what you mean with those metal clip things, i had an old pair of boots the same. in the end i started tucking the laces inside once i tied them. fucking stupid design, they catch too easily.
