The Elephant Body Slam

"I don't get it. I'm standing right there & it's like no one sees me!"

A friend fell out of her office loft a few weeks ago & was laid up for a few weeks, then another friend fell off her horse & was laid out on her couch last weekend. I came down with a nasty staph infection & am now in the middle of my own couch rehabilitation. What do we all have in common, besides being friends & over fifty?

We ALL kept ignoring the ELEPHANT in the room, because seriously, WHO HAS TIME?

We walked around it, over it, or just slammed the front door on it as we ran out of the house, keys in hand. We were faithful to our commitments, deadlines, sandwiched in between parenting our kids & elderly parents, our work & the eight million other tasks we crammed in to each day as expert multi-task masters.

Finally, the elephant stood right in our way & with our heads down, probably looking for a lost shoe, we charged forward & did the ELEPHANT BODY SLAM.

And just like in a head on car crash, everything slowed way, way down & finally came to a screeching halt.

to  be continued the next time I get off the couch........
