    Default The Down Side (literally) of COing

    (I intended to post this here the day it happened; which also happened to be the day I discovered the LHC boards were down.)

    First, let me preface this by saying: I am fine. Except for a little bruise over my temple, which lasted a couple weeks, and some random aches and pains, I am just fine. But...

    ...LHCers, if you're going to CO, please invest in a non-slip bath mat of some sort.

    Yes, I fell in the shower. Actually, technically I fell out of the shower. My foot slipped on conditioner residue, then I tried to catch myself with the other foot and slipped on that one too, overbalanced and tumbled over the edge of the tub and onto the floor, pulling down the shower curtain (rod and all) on top of me. Thank goodness DBF was home! He came rushing into the bathroom and the first thing he said to me was, "Are you OK?"

    So here I am laying on the floor, naked but for a lot of soap, tangled up in a shower curtain and wedged between the loo and the towel rack. Naturally I responded, "DO I LOOK OKAY?" Poor DBF.

    He picked me up and rinsed me off and drove me to school and bought a new shower curtain, bless his heart. And yes, I'm okay.

    But the moral of the story is: Please be careful when you CO. Clean your tub regularly, and if your tub has an older-style smooth finish, invest in a non-skid surface for the tub. That stuff is slippery!

    Glad to hear you are okay

    You know, with the oils and conditioner my bath can be like a death trap it's so slippery. I've lost count of the times i've skidded around because i forget and move sharply.

    I'm glad you're ok.....and good thinking to warn people.

    Ok, I know you could have been seriously hurt and I'm glad that you've live to tell the tale. But I laughed out loud when I read . . .

    You have an amusing way of putting things.
