My life has been full of trips, bumps, bruises, spills, and shatters! I need full body armor... and a bib!
I used to work in the kitchen of a restarant. I was constantly around hot burners, sharp knives, and grinding blades. YOu can see where THAT'S leading! When I wasn't getting burned or cut, I was dropping plates, food, containers, or drinks! One day I watched a small diamond from my engagement ring bounce into a Chef Salad I was preparing. As it was rush hour, I quickly sifted through the lettuce, couldn't find the stone, and sent the plate on out to the customer! lol
As a child I managed to fall through the glass front door at my Grandmother's house. I power- pushed the middle of the glass while racing cousins out the door. The glass shattered from the top to middle, and I had to stay bent over the door fr
As a child and teen, within 7 years, I'd managed to step on 7 nails! I should be dead from lock jaw by now! And speaking of feet, when I first joined EP, I had a broken foot! I had stepped off a chair while trying to hang a curtain,and put my foot down on my son's sippy cup. THe cup spun backwards, and I shot forward! The chair fell towards the trash can, the trashcan tipped over spilling debris all over the floor! Simultaniously, I was falling, and tried to catch myself with my... armpit! I cracked or fractured some ribs along the way. My foot landed first and twisted sideways, ending in that nauseating POP sound. And from there I crashed HARD to my bottom! The break in the foot was non displaced (meaning it was NOT set in proper place), but I couldn't afford to get it set. However, 4 days later, while hobbling down carpeted stairs, I caught my broken foot on the stair, felt another POP that actually felt good, and I think the fracture went back into place!
And I'm probably one of the very few that can drop a FORK off the counter and have it stick straight up in my Big toe until I had to remove it!
