Honest Lie

Probably the excuse abused women (and probably men) use most to explain bruises is "I walked into a door."

I've used it many times.

So I finally get myself into a safe place, well away from anyone who is going to hurt me, and what do I do?  I misjudge a cabinet door and give myself a black eye.  To make matters worse, I was getting therapy from a women's shelter at the time.  It took some fast persuasive talking to get the people there to believe that I really DID get that black eye by walking into a door!
