My mom used to say many things to me, when I was a youngster, and one was:
"Max! Slow down!!!"
She wouldn't scream it mind you, but she made sure I heard her.
Did I ever slow down? No really! And just a few moments ago, her words rang out quite loudly as I slipped a bit on the kitchen floor.
Nope! I didn't land on my butt but I twisted my right knee just enough to bring tears to my eyes.
A bit of ice in a cloth is keeping the swelling down & ya can bet I am doing a bit of hobbling around at the moment. Ya also can bet I'll keep the cats out of my path till my knee gets less ouchie!
Can ya remember any comments your mom used to say to you that still ring in your ears today?
