Four Surprising Ways I’ve Managed To Hurt Myself This Week
Guys, I am a klutz. We know this. But my latest journeys into paintown have not necessarily been because of something I did. Just... stuff that happened. Well. Some of it was me, too. I know I'm starting to get a wee bit older, although I also know I'm not old yet. But my body seems to want to punish me for the process anyway. Just this week, I managed to hurt myself without actually injuring myself several times.
I was going to go home and got into my car. For some reason, I guess I was sitting down at an odd angle or something? My legs and hips hurt a little bit. I had to wiggle around in the seat for a minute before it finally stopped. What in the fresh heck? How does one get hurt just by sitting? That seems like a new development to me.
Last night, I made myself some chicken spinach mac and cheese. I put it in the oven to finish it, and got busy cleanin'. Then, as it was done, I put on the oven mitt and opened the door to the oven. Do you see where this is going? Yep, I opened the oven with the had that had the mitt on and reached into the dang oven with the other one. Now I just barely touched the dish. But I still touched it. It didn't even make a mark on my finger, but it still smarted a little bit.
I think this was Tuesday night. I was sitting on the couch, minding my own business, when my cat yeowled from the other room. SO, naturally, I got up to investigate. She was fine, hollering at nothing, just to make noise like they do sometimes. So I sat back down, and as I did, I somehow managed to knee myself (lightly) in chest. It was a quick, surprising moment, but.. apparently I have to be careful on the couch, too?!
Sunday, I was getting ready for bed, and decided to look a little bit on my phone as I was settling in. Again, I'm sure you know where this is going. I managed to drop my phone on my face. Thwacked myself in the nose. It didn't hurt after a minute or two, but I'm not even safe in the comforts of my own BED.
