Four Cups of Tea

Not so much a memory lapse as a lapse of consciousness. And who but a menopausal woman would nod off over a book in the middle of a sunny Saturday afternoon?

In my defense, I was already 7,234 steps into the day. That included one Jazzercise 'Express' Class, a trip to Target, two loads of laundry, and vacuuming the entire upstairs plus the living room. So I felt entitled to a cup of tea at the kitchen table, feet up on another kitchen chair, and a moment with my current read "Three Cups of Tea."

My tea was still warm when my afternoon delight abruptly screeched to a halt as a half-dreaming jerk of the arm knocked that very cup of tea, nearly full, into my lap.

Sounds like you had a busy day. No wonder you nodded off all nice and cozy in the kitchen.

At least you weren't facing a patient on the other side of the table! LOL!

I can relate to the "tea spill and nodding" part but we're missing the point, aren't we (said with much humor :). The truly cool thing you did in this story is amass 7,000+ steps during that day!!!!! That's something most folks of ANY age aren't getting done (at least here in the U.S.). Thanks for the reminder to wear our pedometers, set the 10K a day goal and actually do the regular walking!

I have a good visual image of your jumping after that spilled.
