Sunday 20 April 2014: Die Tulpe
Or "the tulip" if my use of German gives you the vapours.
Comedy afflictions abounded today. I tried to get out of bed - being very careful about my swollen right ankle (so swollen I can't put a sock on it). I hadn't considered that my left knee would give way. It did and I ended up battering my head off one of the many edges that we have here.
It was a quarter past six in the ack emma.
When all's said and done, I've had better starts to Sundays.
And so for the rest of the day, I've been limping on both legs which is about as horrid as it sounds. Add to that the occasional violent spasm in my back and you can imagine how much fun I didn't have.
On the other hand I did get to admire this beautiful tulip.
