That's Rocky Balboa getting punch in the face, in case you didn't know. Apologies for the grossness of the photo (especially that bloody saliva), but this picture really does illustrate EXACTLY how I felt on Friday. I was knocked sideways in a way I didn't quite expect. I put this down to the fact that I was hoping (expecting, even) the news to be good. Now I'm normally a glass-half-empty sort of person, so this optimism was totally out of character. I have learned my lesson and am returning to my pessimistic ways ASAP.
I'm feeling OK about it now., by the way. I scraped myself off the floor, dusted myself down, checked I hadn't lost any teeth.
Life can keep punching me in the face but I'm going to keep on getting up. Every single time. So there. *blows raspberry at life*
