Here's the Truth

Normally, if you see a movie poster, I'm bringing you a review. Alas, I'm still a bit indisposed. The doctor is happy with my toe tendon progress, but the pin is still in and I can't drive. Bummer.

But I wanted to share my secret with my blog friends. You remember I said I hurt my toe with a clumsy "stub the toe on a paver stone" story. Well.................

I'm actually Scarlett Johansson's stunt double. Shocking, I know. We had a small incident on the set of Captain America: Civil War.  Chris Evans still isn't handy with that shield of his, and clobbered my toe. Man, it hurt. He was apologetic. Scarlett felt bad that I took one for the team, but she still hasn't sent flowers or a get well card.

That's my tale and I'm sticking to it.   Happy Friday everyone. Have a great weekend

  2. That sounds like a perfectly reasonable explanation. Bad form for not sending flowers, though ;-)

  3. LOL, I love it! Hubby and his brother, both musicians, made a music video a few years back. In it they are playing their guitars, but there is also a background story to it with a part where women are dancing. I posted the video on my blog to showcase his talent and I said I was one of the dancers (not). It was fun.

    So yes, I believe your story about being the stunt double!

    And I do hope you mend soon! Not being able to drive isn't fun.

  5. Holy moley! I can't leave you alone for one minute without you hurting yourself, young lady! Sheesh. I'm so sorry about the toe surgery. It doesn't sound like any fun at all, but it WILL get you out of doing any of those "athletic" kinda things you don't want to do. :)

    I love your excuse. Years ago, when I broke my foot, I had a lot of fun with my "Would you believe..." explanations for the bum foot. In actuality, I ran into the bed leg in the dark.

    Have a fantabulous weekend.

  8. I am quite sure the flower delivery guy got stuck in traffic and will be there very soon. Take care of yourself.

  9. How rude of Chris! You're very gracious to not make a big fuss over it and sue.

    Happy weekend, Joanne.
