Stupid Ways to Hurt Yourself...

If there is a Really Stupid Way To Hurt Myself, I can garantee that I WILL find it.

So... in doing laundry today, a washcloth got stuck in the dryer somehow. I yanked on it, but it was really stuck. I bent down as much as I could (not easy given the un-bendiness of my injured, pre-surgery knee) and yanked on that washcloth more. It finally jerked free suddenly, making me snap back & up with less than wonderful balance. Somewhere along the way, my face connected with a pair of large BBQ tongs on top of the dryer that were conveniently poking out just enough to be detrimental.

Now I have four scratches on my face, shaped exactly like the ridges of that stupid pair of tongs. One is about an inch long, the next a lill shorter, and so on till the last one is barely there.

Just call me ScarFace.
