It was a terrible day today. I went to an electrical item shop, where I was delivered the ordered stereo, a product of Sony, this afternoon. It was for my wife. She wanted a good quality audio system for herself at her room.
A staff has brought the item to my car on a cart. I was hurrying up leading him to my car. All of sudden, I felt I had flown in the air. In a second, I bumped my head badly on the ground. I tripped with a car stop block to fall on the ground. A dull thud. Sharp pain. Some oozing on the parietal region. The shop staff has given me a towel to hold down the injury. I haven't had any neck pain at that time. In a couple of hours, however, dull muscle pain on the neck has followed, which is aggravated with rotating head.
It may be impossible for me to go for the 2nd practice of the ensemble. Too bad. I have been looking forward that so much. This pain seems just muscular in origin but not due to cervical spine problem etc. It may subside spontaneously in a few days. Maybe, God tells me to be quiet at home since I turned 66 years of age yesterday.
Yes, it was my 66th birthday yesterday. Through Face Book or e mail, I have received birthday greeting from many friends. Every greeting words has penetrated my mind in depth. Especially, a card from Cathy and Bruce Elbert has made me almost crying. It told me they reckon me as an important person as I am. I thanked all of the greetings. This accident surely warns me that I am getting older and I should behave in the way suitable for my age.
