Today, I woke up in an amazing mood and practically jumped out of bed, only to fall flat on my face. In my half-asleep daze I'd forgotten that I'm missing a leg. FML

Did I hate leg puns create a new account? If not y’all should meet up and swap stories and legs!

I'm not even sure how that could happen. The only time you should jump out of bed so fast is when the germans decide to invade your country. otherwise take it easy, you'll give yourself a head-rush

Welllll, the Germans never made it to Blighty. The Frenchies on the other hand have had a few run-ins with Fritz! They even have 17 words that approximately translate to "Surrender".

You took the words out of my mouth. I was going to say I Can't Stand Leg Puns has competition. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Did you also steal I Hate Leg Puns’s profile picture? If not, why not?

That could lead to the first genuine case of not being able to dance due to having two left feet.


Hope you are ok. I am just picturing the “Oh Shit” look on your face when you realized what was happening.

How did you fall flat on your face? Are you missing your arms, too?

Was it one of those you stood up on one leg and spun around and fell flat on your face kind of moments 😕

You took ‘hop to it’ a little far in this case

Heya, OP here! To those of you wondering, yes this is actually mine. Believe it or not, I actually "posted" this a whiiiiiile ago, before I made this new username, it just took ages for you all to see it. Anyways, basically I woke up happy but still half asleep, like the feeling when you're not even sure if you're awake yet, what's dream and what's real, etc. And in any dreams I still have my leg, so it wasn't at the top of my mind when I got up. Practically leaped out of bed, and realized Ol' Lefty wasn't there to catch me, so I fell to my side and smacked my face into the floor. That sure woke me up! But I was fine, no lasting injuries.

If you don’t mind me did you lose your leg?

I was crossing the road with right-of-way, and a speeding vehicle hit my leg mid-step, practically tearing it off with sheer force. I was thrown a few meters, had several compound fractures (bone sticking out of the skin), and a lot of the bone was basically in splinters, so it was amputated above the knee. However, generally don't ask strangers that sort of thing, because they may take offense to it, and believe me, I hear it so much that the question drives me insane.

I am so sorry that this happened to you Op. I can’t imagine how hard was it for you to get used to living without a limb. I wish you all the best of luck.

Thank you. It's been an interesting experience, to say the least. You really find out who your true friends are after learning you can't go out and do as much as you used to. Very humbling experience.

With your humor, I’d make up crazy stories for their nosiness. Say... well, I once saw someone on the street who lost their leg & stupidly ask them how it happened... now I know & so will you.
