I banged my ahem

“I banged my... ahem I banged my... achoo And nobbled my coccyx.” “Ouch! What did you do?” “A bottle lay sideways Right there! On the stair! It worked like a roller I flew through the air And whack! On the corner of stair number two I banged my... ahem I banged my... achoo You don’t know how that hurts... but, oh woman, I do.”* *It seemed inappropriate to say “oh man” when discussing such a happening. 23 November 2019 I’m a bit sore.

Nina, I've had ahems like you describe but always below and well above the waist, except once when a boy learning to ride my new Schwinn bike (a poem about it is still posted) when I leaped on the seat, missed, and my "jewels" hit that @#$% bar a girl's bike doesn't have! Thanks for your many comments on my work. / M

Yes, besides pain, my prime reaction was to bristle at the inconvenience. I had stuff to do!

Wishing you a speedy recovery, nothing a couple of glasses of wine won't sort out. Tom.

Tom, I like your thinking. Much better today but I’m not going to let that keep me from the wine bottle!

Eek. Doughnut pillows are NEVER a good sign. At least you don’t spell it “doughnut” like we do!

I honestly thought I’d cracked my coccyx because it was so painful and I went into shock. The pain in my... ahem only became evident once I’d iced the coccyx for an evening. It was really unfunny at the time but I can laugh now! Still stiff and sore though...

Well, no, I have to say, it wasn’t well done at all - particularly as on the way up, I saw the water bottle and thought, “I’ll trip over that in the way down.” Numpty that I am. Thank you Rico. Achoo.
