Stupid Things I Do On Any Given Day…

… Hit myself in the face with the phone receiver while answering the phone and giving myself a black eye. Happy stinkin’ Monday.

    I think I’ve said this before – only you girl, only you…

    I’ll see that and raise you this weekend’s: (1) slicing the top of my head open by bopping it into the upraised back door of my wife’s SUV and (2) sawing the back of my left hand while I was trying to fix a broken gate. You’re better at many things than I am, but clumsy ain’t in it.

    I just punched myself in the face while holding a pliers . . . taking shutters off the house is dangerous business! Luckily, I was doing the shutters in the *back* of the house when it happened, so no witnesses.

    I once gave myself a concussion pulling a toddler out of a pack and play. Don’t ask. The toddler was unharmed.

    I don’t mean to downplay your sore eye, but that was rather funny. But it is always funny to the other person!! Be careful!!

    I chipped my tooth on a microphone as I was walking up to sing, I stepped on the round pedestal part at the bottom and it flipped up like a rake.

    If it makes you feel any better, I did the same thing once. Phone cord got stuck on the desk, I picked up the phone, and when the cord came loose, I hit myself in the face and had a bruised cheek. It’s a talent, but I’ve done it.
