    @chillinchillin:  *HUGS* Sorry you got injured, but at least you and your dad can co-host a pity party, which is always better than hosting it by yourself.  Hopefully you’ll heal up quickly and be able to forget about the whole thing soon.

    So you drove home very drunk and all you got was a smack from the sidewalk consider yourself lucky.

    @chillinchillin:  I was wondering that, too.  Where were you walking to when you left the bar?  You sounded like you were saying you walked back to your car…

    @chillinchillin:  oh come on, you said you parked far away and on the long walk back (to your car is what I derived using handy dandy context clues) you tripped. Sooo unless you slept in your car, it definitely sounds like you drove. Sorry you hurt yourself, but I’m with @Atalanta you’re lucky that’s the worst that happened to you.  Hope you and your dad get well soon.

    @chillinchillin:  I admit I came to the same conclusion as everyone else, but in our defense you didn’t mention you were with anyone in your original post. I’m glad you didn’t drive, but I am sorry you fell and hurt yourself. I’d just keep telling yourself that you got it a lot better than your dad did. And just be happy that he survived the incident! I realize this may not help much, but you’ll probably feel better in a few days.

    @chillinchillin:  I really hope you didn’t drive if you were literally falling over drunk.  You didn’t mention your fiance at all, so I’m sure you can understand our collective confusion.  


    The stupid things I’ve done while drunk are…stupid, not necessarily painful.  Once my best friend and went to the bar, WALKED HOME (lol just in case anyone is wondering), fell shoulder first into the door of our apartment, and then decided it would be a good idea to slide down our stairs…on our stomachs…side by side…  The stairs had grip paper on them.  We woke up the next morning covered in scrapes.  But…um…IT WAS AWESOME.  lol.

    I did some really dumb shit while drunk this weekend, too. So, know that you are not alone!

    Sorry about your pain, but very thankful that your father is okay. My father getting hurt is my worst nightmare on earth.

    @chillinchillin:  Oh honey, if we didn’t do dumb/dangerous shit after we’d tied one on…I would think drinking wouldn’t be nearly as fun as it is….don’t feel bad.

    This was a few years ago, but my Grandfather fell and broke his hip right before Thanksgiving, and when you’re 87, and you fall and break a hip…doctors tell you pretty quick, that this could be it.

    So, I got it over with a got kind of drunk..ok REALLY drunk, in my house with Mr. 99 and a friend of ours that was staying with us, then I tripped over the cat at the top of the stairs, did a swan dive down them and crashed into the sofa like a sack of potatoes….I was a patchwork quilt of bruises, rug burns and scratches, I snapped off a couple of nails and managed to give myself a respectable shiner on the arm of the couch and looked like a disaster area just in time for Turkey Day.

    In our family, such hijinx is nothing to be ashamed of, just part of the deal….that and the fact that I’m such a clutz that I don’t have to be drinking to trip over myself and get hurt…so whatever.

    You’re alright, tell people whatever lie you want, tell each person a different one…make it fun…Snowblower Accident, Drunken Santa Attack, Black Friday Battle!
