Today's One-Minute Writer prompt is: Fall--Write about a time you fell.
I had a bad fall about four years ago. We were moving my Grandmother to Nashville to live with Mom. Mom and I were carrying the mattress down the steps to load into the Uhaul. Well, I missed the bottom step. I went careening back and tried to keep myself from hitting my head on the trailer hitch. I succeeded, but I hit my, um...derriere...full on against the bumper. It was very painful and the right side of my tush was so severely bruised, it was black. It took over a month to heal. I consider myself lucky though. If I would have hit my head on that trailer hitch, I could have ended up dead.
