Pride Does Not Go Beforeth The Fall

You would think

Sliding down a mountain of ice

In front of unsuspecting or unexpecting strangers

Would be fun


I assure you

It is not.

Pride does not go beforeth the fall

It goes with the fall.

No Chatters were injured in the production of this post.

Unless you count

Hind end, elbows, knees, and Ego bruising

As injuries.


It might not really have been a mountain.

  1. I’m sure it felt like a mountain!!

  2. Oh no so glad you are ok! I can relate!

  3. Ocean Bream says:

    My sympathies are with you, Colleen! Maybe you can laugh about it later, but for now, your injuries need nursing. Also glad to hear you aren’t hurt badly!

  4. Ouch. The bruises will heal, but the ego is a tough one. You’re okay, right? ā¤ ā¤ ā¤

  5. I love your P.S.! A quick recovery to all of you Colleen! ā¤

    Ha! But think of how healthy the exercise is!

  7. Oh Colleen…were you hitting the bottle again?

  8. Meritings says:

    Oh, I’m sure that it was a mountain, and I bet you rescued someone which caused you to fall!

    • Well now, actually, I had just used my hiking stick to pull 2 girls and their dog UP the ice hill. But after they were up, I went down, down, down. And then THEY had to use my hiking stick to pull me back up! šŸ™‚

  9. russtowne says:

    Perhaps you might want to consider not doing that again! ;-D! I hope all your bruised parts heal fast and well.

  10. niaaeryn says:

    Oh, that sound like a rough one, but glad you are otherwise ok. Looks like you were riding a shovel down the mountain? Yet, I know it was a hurt pride and body so guessing not deliberate. Hot cocoa, warm fire, cozy chair, and draw away while the pride heals as this is a lovely picture despite the wounds suffereemd. Hope you are well as well šŸ™‚

  11. What is authentic pride without a few bruises?

  12. Val Boyko says:

    Ego always create mountains … So glad you detected it. It’s is a bit embarrassing though to fall on ones ass in public.
    Sharing it of course reduces any residual ego and shame.
    Love it.
    Love you for sharing!

  13. Gibber says:

    Uh oh are you okay?! Yep if I fall in public the first thing I do is look around to see who saw me. *I haven’t fallen in pubic in years. Knock on wood!

  14. I must confess, my first reaction was to giggle at this, but truly hope you are alright. Be assured though, I am laughing with you and not at you šŸ˜€ Your sense of humour was certainly not bruised in the fall! šŸ˜‰

  15. reocochran says:

    Oh no, Colleen! I hate when there is crusty ice piled up and how hard it feels falling or sliding on it. It can be slippery and jagged, too. šŸ˜¦ Hope you are not badly hurt or bruised. No one really knew who you were snd no newspaper reporter announcing you fell. Don’t be embarrassed too much. . . ā™”

  16. Debra says:

    Oh I am glad that the only real injury is to your pride! And coming to terms with it quoting the Bible is a good and solid way to go forward. LOL! I loved your “photo.” Have a very careful week, Colleen.

    Pride is overrated. šŸ˜€

  19. Hahaha! I feel your pain. I once very publicly and singlehandedly took out a lift line at a ski place, only able to come to a complete stop by falling and skidding to a halt. šŸŽæā„ļøšŸŽæ

  20. This made me laugh, but now I feel a little guilty for laughing.
