Signs That You Are Getting Old
I have 2 kids. One that is five and the other is one. My 5-year-old son has no idea how strong he is. I have bruises in places I prefer not to mention. I have been doubled over in pain, had my ribs/feet/hands crushed and been head butted. You name it, I’ve suffered it. My daughter, on the other hand, is small and gentle.
But last night, I pulled a muscle in a place I didn’t know that I could pull a muscle.
She dropped her teddy bear and I leaned over the side of my chair to pick it up and I came back up with this excruciating pain. I have since been looking for a bruise. (nothing, yet).
So “smart me” decided to do what everyone else would do: post it on Facebook, which turned out to be a bad idea since I have less-than-sympathetic friends.
The following came to me from one of my (so-called) friends.
