If you miss the bottom step (because, say, you are carrying loads of rubbish/garbage to take out to the bin and can't see where you are going) and fall on your arse you can totally twist your ankle and it could theoretically still really hurt the next day.

and in theory everyone would point and laugh at you.

didn't happen to you did it?

Funko
14-04-2005, 15:37:56
Yes. No-one else was there though. Just me swearing and the rubbish.

Isn't this like a tree falling in the woods kind of scenario though?

Funko
14-04-2005, 15:38:40
No-one was there to laugh at me but it still hurt, if that proves anything to zen types.

If it didn't feel like I'd properly done something bad to my ankle I'd have been laughing too.

The problem is that I can picture the rubbish going everywhere and you flying down the stairs. Must have looked great.

Stick some tiger balm on it and lay off the footie for a week or so. You'll be fine in no time.

Maybe it's broken. Maybe you hit your head on something hard. Did you?

Funko
14-04-2005, 15:44:57
The rubbish was all safely still tied up. :)

Yeah, it will be fine it's just a bit annoying. Especially no footie as I could actually play this week - and can't again until mid May.

Mike, you really need to recognise that in every male/female relationship the man is always to blame and never the woman.

Funko, you may have sprained it. There's 3 grades of sprains, and if it's a grade 1 sprain, chances are you could still walk around on it with minor discomfort and not realise it's sprained. I suffered a grade 2 sprain playing football (soccer) years ago, and two days later I could walk on it, after a lot of icing and stuff.

All I can say is that if it still hurts after a few days, see a physio about it. Or just be cery careful with it. I wasn't with mine, and it took 6+ months to get better, and is still far weaker than originally. Basically, don't just blow it off and think it is nothing - it may not be.

Still... :lol: :lol: :lol:

or you can do it the poor man's way. Just throw the bad down the stairs (hopefully you have a bag strong enough not to fall apart), and then descend normally.

I sprained my ankle so badly once I cried for hours and had to spend a week in bed - I couldn't move about because of the pain. I couldn't even put the blanket on it or touch it.

We do have a lift, I should have. Teach me not to be lazy for once!

I should have tossed the rubbish off the balcony into the river. That would have been the rock thing to do.

He's a really bad Newcastle defender. When I went to see Chelsea Newcastle the Chelsea fans cheered every time he got the ball and were singing "Titus Titus give us a goal".

He's pretty good. Not as good as he used to be, but still pretty good. He scored 3 goals last night.

Yeah, and apparently he's been doing a lot better under Souness, but how many mistakes does a player have to make before opposing fans will start constantly ragging him about them for the rest of their career? :D

King_Ghidra

Ask Ian Dowie - how many mistakes did he have to make to be hated by Southampton fans?
