I'm a bit of a klutz. I trip over wrinkles in the air or my own big feet. And I drop things. LOTS!! I drop tubes, caps for those tubes, bottles of controls (at least they end up well mixed!). Sunday, I dropped the cap from a control bottle and it rolled under the counter. Not just under the counter, but into the knee hole of the desk and into a nest of cables for the computer and instrument. FYI, I am LabGirl, I work in a hospital lab doing, well, lab tests. I couldn't do what I usually do and slide it out with my foot and I HAD to have that cap back. So I dropped down on my knee, reached into the nest of cables and got it. Then I STOOD UP WITH NO TROUBLE! I could not tell you HOW LONG it's been since I got down on the floor and was able to get up with no trouble and no pain.
Then I did it again today... I guess I had to show myself that Sunday wasn't a fluke.
