George Clooney and I share something in common. No, George did not join a metal band, and I, sadly, was not called to be in the Hulu TV miniseries Catch 22 that he’s filming.
Both George and I are spending a little summer time on the island of Sardinia, Italy. Not together, of course. George is with his gorgeous wife Amal and the lovely Clooney fam.
Still, both of us spending time in Sardinia, Italy this summer is one thing. What’s the chance – how is it even possible – that both George Clooney and I were in unrelated, yet potentially serious accidents within a short time of each other in Sardinia, such a small island?! And, both George and I survived, which is always good.
George riding his scooter (brave!) on his way to his film location near the town of Olbia when he was cut off by a car (the driver was blinded by the sun) and thrown through the air to the ground. Cameras caught footage of the horrible incident.
Luckily, he seems to be okay. He’s George Clooney, so awesomeness is to be expected!
I was in Sardinia for a little summer holiday and to complete the lyrics for our new Skonnie music album. I took a little walk to clear my head and enjoy the glorious day when I saw the most magnificent roses. They were gleaming against the backdrop of a beautiful blue sky and I just had to take a video to remember the moment!
I was suddenly cut off by a rogue… no, actually, I wasn’t. I was so focused on the flowers that I didn’t realize I stepped off an embankment, falling hard onto a cement block, and then smashing, crushing, annihilating the very roses I wanted to capture on video.
Like George, my accident was caught on tape. My camera kept filming the entire time, and this is my exclusive footage right here:
Fractured sternum, badly bruised legs, cuts on arms and hands, still extracting thorn bits. Blood everywhere…so it seemed at the time. There was blood. I was in a fair amount of pain, and I suspect George Clooney was too.
A breathtaking blue sea and all the white sandy beaches make the recovery time more pleasant. Waving at you, George!
