Oh stars Manda - I'm so sorry. Was it a smack or a slide with a thump?
when asked (or in front of my students - with them it seems that i don't even have to be asked) i describe my falls as a slide of one foot, a scramble of the other, flailing of the arms, and finally a slam down into a semi-recumbent seated pose. it's really as inelegant and you would expect it to be.BUTmy boots are wonderful and i was wearing the furry ones when i fell, but i wore the road crew ones (as my friends now call them, thanks mom ;)) when i walked to beth's apartment tonight, which is about a 30 minute walk. there was no falling at all! now...there was a considerable amount more snow, but i have no idea how much ice was below that.ANDthe coats are magical. but i arrive places in a sweat. ugh. oh well. i walk more delicately and slowly when i don't want that to happen.
So sorry about the fall :( but thanks for keeping count and thanks for the video-that's funny stuff!
