1. I hit my knee on Husband's beloved trailer hitch when removing groceries from the car.
2. Since my pants leg would not pull up to reveal the injury, I pulled down my pants and sat on the sofa to examine it.
3. The television happened to be playing one of my favorite movies from 1945, "The Enchanted Cottage," starring Robert young and Dorothy McGuire, which instantly involved my thinking.

5. At that moment I began to have a word storm descend upon me in said position. Hence I am writing with legs crossed, pants down, and attention diverted by the story of love's soft assurance and triumph over the world's most cruel tragedies...homeliness and disfigurement. This long ago story had a low threshold for measuring misfortune and failed to capture my appreciation of such sad affliction; however the intention of it resonates with me.
