The List of an Accident Prone person

September 30, 2011

This post from the lovely and gracious Katt, has a blurb on it about her dumbest injuries.  Well, after reading that, and making a comment, she challenged me to list my forays into idiocy, that may or may not have resulted in a trip to the local ER.  Over my lifetime, in various incarnations, I have had 120 or so stitches, but the only bones I have broken have been various toes, and a finger on my left hand.

My accident prone ability has led me to injure myself in unique ways:

– Had a 1.5 inch finish nail driven into hand by gas powered nailer.  The nail hit a knot in the wood I was nailing and did a u-turn, right into my hand.  (Adult age)

– Tripped over a dog while running around in driveway, and fell into side of house.  Corner made of rough brick met my head.  Had to have that one stitched up.  (Child age)

– Fell off moving vehicle on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, SC.  On Easter Weekend, at the old beach music festival they had there in the 80’s.  I have road rash scars in various places.  (college, need I say more?)

– Sliced small part of thumb off chopping an onion.  (Adult)

– Dumped FULL pot of freshly made coffee onto self as a 5 year old.  The day after my mom came home from hospital after giving birth to my brother.  2nd & 3rd degree burns.  (Child)

– No real feeling in pads of 4 fingers on left hand, as I burnt them on a bread pan at work.  (Adult)

There are others, that may or may not be wise to tell about here…  Some stories are best left for in person telling.

    Haha! These are great! I changed mine to a widget on the side bar since I have a feeling it will be an ongoing list. What fun is life without all the mishaps? :)
