MOSY has returned from her international jaunt and I know you are all anxiously awaiting the stories of her adventures.
We regret to inform you that there will be a small delay to these posts as I am currently languishing in hospital with six broken ribs and a punctured lung.
Well, first of all let me assure you that I returned from Nepal and Bhutan safely and completely unharmed. These injuries were sustained 48 hours after I returned home.
The Story (Please hold all laughter until the end.)
Some of you may recall my horrifying tale of the invasion of clothes moths in our home last summer. (Refresh your memory here.) Clothes were munched through and carpets were destroyed by these wardrobe terrorists.
They have returned with the warmer weather here Down Under and I have gone on the attack.
On my way to bed on Sunday night, I spotted one of these devils on the bedroom ceiling and stepped up onto the edge of the wooden blanket box at the end of our bed to squish it into oblivion.
Helpful Tip For The Kiddies: Do not climb on smooth wooden pieces of furniture while wearing slippery socks.
My feet slipped off the blanket box and I crashed first onto the bedpost and then onto the floor. (Six inches to the left and I’d have landed on the mattress.).
All Together Now: OOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
A ride in an ambulance, a chest x-ray and a CT scan and I was left with the news of six broken ribs (ribs 4 to 9 on my left side), a punctured and mildly collapsed lung and cartilage torn from my breastbone.
I guess if you’re going to do something, at least do it properly.
Oh, the moth survived, by the way.
Okay, now you can laugh.
