I have terrible self-preservation instincts.

I constantly have these small bruises on the sides of my hips and I've never really known what from, the other night I figured out that they're from walking into the chairs at work every single night. So this got me thinking about other places I injure myself on a regular basis.

So here's the list:

1. Chairs at work

2. The top step.
      Common error.. hurts nonetheless.
      I once fell down my stairs and my foot went through the drywall.

3. This tree.
I park in this lot every day at school. and nearly everyday I swing around the edge of that rail when I'm climbing over and smack my head on the lowest branch.
Keep your eyes our for a power hungry ginger with a branch. I'm gunna rip it off soon enough. 

4. Grey Bin
  This bin is overhanging it's spot on the shelf blocking the entrance to my house through the garage. Either I dodge it at the last second like a ninja or hit my head. My mother has admitted to doing the same. Plans to move it in the future? nope.

I do learn from a few of my more memorable mistakes. One in particular was the incident with the over hang in my basement..
I was chasing my dog down the stair, jumped and wacked my head on the ceiling. Fell right to the floor, drywall flakes fall on me, big bump for days, and some blood. I was not as young and stupid as you'd hope. I was 17. There's still a mark in the drywall... wasn't fixed as well as we'd hope

Another lesson I've recently learned was don't run in the dishpit at work. About a year ago I was rushing out of work to get to the liquor store before it closed (karma) and fell in the dishpit.
*hint* don't speed walk on tiled floors that are visibly wet.
I tried to grab onto a counter top and instead scraped my arm down the edge.
Lesson : your wellbeing is more important than booze.

So what I guess I'm trying to say is that I won't die of natural causes... if you hear about some fatal accident where I just did something stupid, don't be shocked.


  1. Fortunately - we have well stocked first aid kits and a school nurse at RRC - just in case.

  2. I'm the exact same way. I'm always finding random bruises on my body and I have no idea how they got there.

    Sometimes I think maybe we really are related...

  3. hahahaha, oh lindsay. your a good story teller.
    too too funny, yet I kinda wanna wrap you in bubble wrap.
