Re-enactment (video)

You guys kill me. Your reactions to my blog yesterday might have been even funnier than when I fell off the treadmill. I am relieved to hear that some of you do similar things like run into paper shredders and slip on grapes. I don't feel so alone. I also enjoyed hearing that you were laughing with me not at me, but we all know what that means. You're laughing at me with lots of sympathy.

I'd like to say we could put this episode behind us, but there is some unfinished business to attend to.

First of all, Ken pointed out, as did Alison, that it was impossible to figure out which body part this was:

Ken actually thought it was my nose, which is really funny if you take a minute to imagine it as my nose. Big freaking nose.

It is actually my knee. Here is the full picture. Sorry for the confusion:


Secondly, I would give my left nut (if I had one) to watch the surveillance video of myself falling off the treadmill, but I'm pretty sure that everyone who works at the gym has worn out the video by now. I can just hear it, "Hey Jake. You've got to see this. This stupid chick actually steps onto a moving treadmill. Check this out" and, "Why don't we go get a keg for tonight and watch that girl falling off the treadmill a few hundred times."

In the absence of such a video, the only mature thing to do was to create a re-enactment for your viewing pleasure. I warn you, I look really ridiculous in this video, but I ask you: who looks cool while falling off of a treadmill?

Dramatization. Do not try this at home:

  6. Buhahahahahahahah!!!! I missed the treadmill post,so I had to read it too. That's hilarious!

    Why would someone just walk away and leave the thing running? That was stupid.

  8. hahaha omg the reenactment was prob better than the real thing. I have to admit... I knew the picture was supposed to be your knee, but I couldn't exactly figure it out until you showed the whole pic!

  14. HAHA! You're hilarious! Glad you didn't get hurt too bad.

    So, you know how sometimes during a run you hold onto the side bars and pop your feet off to the side while the mill is still going, just to grab a drink or something... yeah, I did that once but didn't pop out far enough. Spread eagle off the end of the belt. Not a great day.

  24. I know I said this yesterday, but I will have to retract it because I didn't know this was coming! BEST.POST.EVER!!!!!!!! I puffy heart you! If I could get away with it, I would also re-enact me slamming my thigh into the paper shredder. But I have a feeling my business partner and our employee would finally agree I lost it! Hope you're healing!
