Flash true story on New Year's Eve

Mis-happy New Year

by CrystieCookie999

I volunteered to host a New Year's Eve party in December 1998 for church friends. While decorating the house, I stepped off a folding chair at the wrong angle--spraining my ankle! I cried, wrapped the ankle in a kerchief, and applied a package of frozen peas. When guests arrived, they were gracious and polite—and no one commented on how my ankle was wrapped in a blue kerchief. But walking and dancing on it all night aggravated it. By morning it was black and swollen. I had to use ice and crutches for three weeks of 1999 until it healed.
