Here's a stupid one that I did last week - I'm pretty clumsy so causing bruises on myself is pretty common. I normally don't even notice anymore. Then I see the bruise & wonder what I did!

Anyway - I got a new chair at work. I put the arms up pretty high. Pushed myself into my desk/work area & pinched a hunk of my forearm. Yowch!!!!

Cool

This wasn't too recently, but it wasn't long ago--My blood pressure medicine dries my mouth so bad that one morning I woke up with my tongue stuck to my mouth. When I pulled it away, it literally took the skin off the tip of my tongue. It hurt for a week!

i am one of those people that just ignores little bumps and bruises, to the point that someone will exclaim where did the spots of blood come from, so i start checking my limbs for cuts. i was raised that if it isn't sticking out through the skin, you can walk it off.

currently i'm nursing a reinjured torn rotator cuff (from a surfing wipeout a few years ago), which made shovelling out this past weekend a lot of fun.

thank god for aspirin, and beer.

WOW!! And here I am currently HEALTHY! Even after a weekend of skiing!!!

Of course, this comes on the tail end of a re-aggrivated torn hamstring, an attempt to slice off part of two fingers, broken ribs...

I guess I was due...

John

PS - Bucky, they make these things called snowblowers, they work great!!

i have a snowblower, but it is buried in the shed and i've never used it, so i don't even know if it has old gas in it, which would be shellac by know. i'll have to pull it out and give her a tune up for the next storm. lol, i should have time by august....

If so, then I got the better shoulder! My rotator cuff held together when I popped my shoulder out a few years back!

LOL about the old gas - bought a new gas can full right before Christmas for the snowblower, mixed it up, AND IT STOPPED SNOWING!!! It'll be old before I even get a chance to use it!

LOL! Let me tell ya, the last two day's for me have been one constant string of non-stop boo-boo's and blonde-moments.

Another day like the last two and I'll be legally declared a danger to myself and get a nice room with upholstered walls.
