I sprain my ankle standing still

I am quite possibly the only person I know who can twist my ankle standing still. At my deputy managing editor's desk. While talking about tithing and Christmas donations.

This was nothing like the last time I twisted it. In that case, I had extenuating circumstances.

This time? Nada one.

As a matter of fact, the probability of me twisting my ankle was slim to none. If you had asked me, "Hey Holly, do you think it's possible for you to sprain your ankle while you're standing still at the DME's desk talking about tithing and Christmas donations?"

Preposterous! would've been my response.

Nevertheless, there I was. Talking about whether one should tithe off the gross or net amount of lottery winnings (these are the important things we talk about in newsrooms!) and suddenly, my right ankle folded, I'm sure a grimace crossed my face and I limped the rest of the day.

I was even shoeless.

You can laugh because I am.

I did the same thing yesterday (not the first time) completely flat shoes. My ankle and leg are very swollen and painful now.
