You’re feeling pretty fabulous in your newest pair of (very) high heels out on a Friday night. They’re gorgeous, but the only problem is that you have to pay close attention to your every step; you’re still a bit wobbly in them. Making your way from the crosswalk onto the sidewalk, your ankle slips and you go down hard. Would it be worse if . . .
This: You break your ankle in the fall? You have to spend the next four to six weeks hobbling around on crutches until it’s all healed and you can't drive anywhere.
That: You land on the left side of your face, creating multiple black welts and some scratches? The doctor says you’ll be healed in 10 days, but until then half of your face is twice its normal size; everyone is going to notice.
Which is worse?
