"Karma is a funny thing"

Have you ever seen the show My Name is Earl? Well.. the premise of the show is exactly why I'm writing todays blog. Karma is a funny thing.
The story of Earl is as follows: Earl is a low-life who buys a winning lottery ticket, only to get hit by a car, losing the ticket in the process. He then realizes in the hospital that his bad luck is the result of karma in which fate punishes him for all the rotten things he's ever done in his life; therefore, he then decides to dedicate his life to making amends to all the people he has hurt in his life.

So anyway... Karma. I got it and got it good. The story: Recently a client came into my office and asked if I'd like to come to a dinner/talk for her employer which was a Spine and Wellness center. hmmmm Free dinner? Talking about medical stuff... sure I'm in right?!!
It was the last week of Nancy being here {see previous Nancy posts} and I asked her to be my guest and go with as well as one of the girls I work with. Free dinner, talking back pain, headaches and general aches was perfect for a girls night out! ;) haha especially at my age! *Snort*

We get to the dinner.. which was OUT OF THIS world I may add, perfect Italian place with outstanding food... listen to the guest speaker, ask all kinds of questions and tried not to act so interested as that we would be pestered at a later date. Anyway.. the speaker asks us to fill out all these papers and it includes our name/address/phone number. I knew I wasn't going to go to this place... so I did it. I lied! I put a false name/address/phone number and told my friend from work to do the same. She said she couldn't do that!!! I was like ok.. well they are going to be relentless in trying to get you to go there. {And sure enough they did in the end} So as the night drew to a close I started feeling more and more guilty about it and eventually changed mine back to the correct info, just requesting that I get no phone calls. I felt good about changing it and felt bad for thinking that way to begin with. Terrible Ang.. terrible!

I drive home... get out of the car... and BAMMMMM, karma bit me straight in the rump!!! I tripped on my flip flops and fell right into the exterior mirror of my truck. I cannot tell you the immense pain that ensued! Luckily I did hit the mirror and not the ground, no telling what kind of shape Id been in then! It threw my body into a complete torque and I was sore for two days afterwards.. and still today 2 weeks later still have a bruise and heavy contusion under the skin!!!
Never ever will I ever do something like that again. Its true "Karma is a funny thing" ;O)

Lesson learned... I'm only human!
