Disappearing act  

Posted by: reflective moments

I recently was reminded of a time years ago when K and I were out for a walk and I disappeared down a manhole... And to add insult to injury he didn't miss me till he was about 3 houses away and ready to cross the road.   I dropped to my shoulders down the manhole and at the same time lost my voice.... I tried calling to him but no sound came out... by this time he was at the corner and I am watching him and waving my arms. eventually after what seemed like hours, he turned around looking for me and finally he looked down and saw me waving.. what felt like hours had passed was instead minutes.  When Keith got to me he could see that the concrete had broken and crumbled around the cover and as I walked across it the concrete cover spun over and pinned my legs. I was trapped mid stride... I wore those indentations for over a year on my legs, fortunately nothing was broken,  Still to this day I cannot walk over manhole covers....

Hehe! Shall I repeat the fb comments? No, but really, it is funny although not nice for you. Partner incidentally always checks them VERY carefully before he walks over them.


Well I had to start somewhere lol

Now I get the fb comments ...LOL
That could have been quite dangerous, and it sounds like something that would happen to me... ;)

ps - have listed this to blog roll. :)

this is the most horrific story! I am always wary of those manhole covers, my friend recently did a similar thing, and I know how painful it was for her.

But you did put a funny twist to your tale, I keep thinking of poor you, waving silently from the manhole, and K, not seeing you.
