Define: Embarassment

I fell out of a bunk bed this morning.

I completely missed the ladder and crashed onto the wooden parts of the other bed and the wooden floor. My sleeping bag, blanket, and pillow all came with me.

Fortunately, I was alone in the cabin at the time.

Not so fortunately, I'd just had that thought when I heard the door open. I scrambled up and threw my sleeping bag, pillow, and blanket back onto the bed and nonchalantly (in my mind, anyway, I was probably waddling/limping a bit) waltzed into the other room. Mikyla asked if I was alright, so I had to assume she'd caught that something had happened. I mumbled something about the ladder and tried to pretend it didn't happen. Turns out she heard the crash from outside.

And now I have a big, swollen, painful, nearly black bruise on my lower back/hip-ish area, riiiiight where my belt sits.

On the bright side, it definitely woke me up.
