It's All Fun and Games...

They say it's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye. I say, if you find yourself questioning whether it's all still fun and games, it probably isn't a good thing.

Explanation: See, you think of stuff like this after you remember that when something hits you really hard in the face, it makes a very distinct "clunk" sound. In my case, this "clunk" was the result of the business end of a 100 foot three-prong outdoor extension cord drilling me in the face. I still have no idea how it happened. I had it wrapped around my shoulder and was reaching down for something. I think it started to unravel, the end falling off the back of my shoulder, accellerating through the bottom of its arc, and finding its mark as it came up the other side. Regardless of what actually happened, it's never good when you find yourself asking the question, "Did I just blind myself?" It turns out that I did not. I do, however, have a large gash and a comical lump about a half inch from my right eye, though.

While I did post a new status message, I am not at work today. I am having gum surgery instead. If you think you'd prefer gum surgery to work, I will gladly switch places with you.

While removing the young boy from his crib, the yoyng girl fell under my feet. Leading to a one footed spin, a fall, a broken closet door, and a substantial sore spot on my back. No children were hurt in the making of this mess.
Not fun and games. No one lost an eye though.
Feelin your pain.

While excavating my ear with a q-tip my wife opened the bathroom door hitting my elbow and pushing the q-tip in a little to far. Other then wetting myself every time the doorbell rings, I have no other lasting effects.

It hurts when I smile, so that "wetting yourself" comment was not appreciated.
