Can I Collect Workman's Comp?


I just fell off my chair.

I leaned over to pick up something and the chair rolled out from under me and I fell with a crashing thud.

There were immediate cries of “What happened?” and “Are you ok?”

I hauled myself up, righted my chair, assured my coworkers all was well and went back to work, with the tingling of what is sure to become a lovely bruise on my right arm.

I am telling you this because I thought you all deserved a nice mental image of Jen falling on her ass in her cubicle. Makes for a nice pick-me–up in the middle of an otherwise boring week, don’t you think?

Know this: I loathe, despise and abominate vegetables. So that fact that I am eating raw carrots for the third day in a row is worth mentioning.

Don't feel bad. I got lost in my hometown this morning on the way to a hearing. The bad part? My client was following me in his truck. :-\

I don't think you can get worker's comp for boneheaded moves. ;-)

I do those kind of graceful things on a daily basis.

Try not loving veggies and then having to go on a diet consisting mainly of vegetables : ( So good for you!

Just have an Oreo chaser. It'll wipe that healthy taste right outta your mouth.

Oh to be Jen, never a dull moment.

Should we wrap you in bubble wrap?

A day in the life of an office job. I've actually got calluses on my hips from running into the front counter so many times.

What would happen if you dunked the carronts in Ranch dressing??
