Oh no! That sucks. How's your thumb now?

I had my ditzy moment yesterday - a friend asked me to pick her up at the airport, and i KNEW it was a domestic flight - but that didn't stop me from looping around the pickup area (no idling allowed and her plane was late), going into the parkade and waiting for 20 minutes in the INTERNATIONAL Arrivals.

Then I had to pay my $8.50 so I could leave the parkade, and loop back around the airport to the domestic pickup area, where I wouldn't have had to pay for parking anyway. Sheesh.

I fainted once when I had to push an earring through a closed earring hole. Not sure why I thought I HAD to, but I did...
Woke up lying in the scattered kitty litter...

I've never fainted in my life.... Did you take a photo? That's what I would have done before removing it.

Back when I worked at a magazine I once sliced the tip of my index finger with an x-acto blade while trimming a layout, leaving a flap (eww). One co-worker kept asking me to see it (?) until I left for the ER and they stitched me up. @Shannon: I did take a pic while waiting for the dr. One for the album! Lol

I've had some doozies. I'm pretty accident prone. Haven't put a staple in my thumb but I've come pretty close.

I remodeled several houses and had a lot of cuts. One of my "favorites" was removing these huge nails from a space under the stairs at a remodel and tugging super hard with a hammer and when it finally let loose my arm caught another huge nail below it. Still have the scar.

Here's the post from my remodeling blog:

Glad I'm not the only one. Smile

No, you're not the only one. I feel UP the stairs yesterday. Managed a couple of blue bruises on my legs, and I have really sore arms because I grabbed on to the balustrade (to stop my face from hitting the steps too) and nearly ripped them out their sockets. Well, I could be exaggerating, but it didn't feel too good.
I hope your poor thumb is getting some R&R... and it wasn't your painting hand!

Ha! You all crack me up. What a bunch of clutzes! (is that a word? oh well, it is now.)

No I didn't take a photo, I was too busy lying on the floor unconscious. pale

My gorgeous daughter quickly came to my rescue with a glass of water, cool face washer and a lollipop to make me feel better. She's cool as a cucumber.

I've always wondered how people can be so stupid as to shoot themselves with nail guns or saw off their own limbs. Now I know!

Have you guys heard of the Darwin Awards or is that an Aussie thing?

I love that your daughter gave you first aid... water, face washer and a lollipop. That's way too cute.

Yay for your daughter - what a thoughtful and clever gal! I love you

My kids would probably be standing over me as I regained consciousness asking me 'what's for dinner?"

Very Happy

Okay, so a very stupid thing I did once (so many to choose from) was walking barefoot in the kitchen one day (no, I wasn't pregnant too Very Happy) when I felt something on the bottom of my foot - instead of looking to see what it was, I just lifted my leg slightly and rubbed the sole of that foot on the top of my other foot - to remove whatever it was...

...unfortunately that 'thing' that had been on the bottom of my foot turned out to have been a piece of glass - (somehow it had just stuck to the sole of my foot without cutting it) - which then sliced open the top of my other foot, when I rubbed the sole of my foot on it...

yeah, not smart Smile

I was born with two left feet. Wink No, just kidding, but it seems I was! I'm the queen of clumsy. I always stumble on everything and my arms and legs are full of bruises. Even my GP gave me a leaflet and a long talk about abuses at home Rolling Eyes I had to explain him that my husband is a beautiful and nice person and I'm awkward myself. At this moment I have a beatiful burn on my left arm because yesterday I hit a hot pan with oil ... Arggggh, I hate hot oil!! pale

Snicker, these are too funny! Hey, we need a place to put our own Darwin awards. (quote) Laugh at yourself first, before anyone else can. Yesterday, I forgot my ice water mug still had some left and reached up for something and poured the remainder down my own back. Once I blackened one eye when I leaned over the car door without looking. I blackened the other eye 3 days later by turning around and walking straight into a house door. My poor innocent hubby got a lot of nasty looks.

Justine, this made me laugh and laugh... not that it happened, just your upbeat attitude about it. I've stapled my own thumb before with a regular stapler, when I was a kid. It hurt.

I cut my thumb once while carving a pumpkin for Halloween, and I fainted dead away on the floor while trying to get to the paper towels. First time I've ever fainted in my life. My daughter was 3yrs and I awoke to her sprinkling me with juice from her sippy cup. Laughing

How's your thumb now? My day wasn't nearly as interesting as yours.

lol at the sippy cup!!!!
How cute Smile

I have only fainted once and it was because I chose to give blood even though I had not eaten breakfast or dinner the night before. Also, video games are apparently much more fun than drinking water because I was also "dehydrated" and that morning's coffee didn't help.

I woke up with my legs up on a chair, my skirt doing NOTHING to keep me modest and a crowd of people around me.

Upon awakening I promptly realized that my bottom had been on display like some ugly painting at a gallery for the last 5 minutes. I hid my shame and vividly remembered that morning which underwear I chose to wear and hating myself for it.

OUCH!!! and funny!!!
My Darwin award came to me in 4th grade when we were learning about electricity. You know the one... little light bulbs, wires & batteries... Welll, there was this reeaaallly pretty little light bulb w/ all the squiggly thin wires in it(it was of course the ONE the teacher said NO ONE should take). Yup, I snuck that beautiful bulb out knowing it would make the BEST lightshow... and it did... It was flashbulb for a camera & it blew up in my hand burning my finger & thumb. The teacher asked if I was ok & I of course lied & said yes as I stuck my now blistered digits in my mouth Very Happy

Yes my daughter's first aid was good THIS time. The other day we got a new digital set-top box but it was obviously faulty because when I plugged it in and touched it to adjust a cord it gave me a huge electric shock. I yelled out in pain and she jumped up with her bottle of water and tried to pour it on me to stop me from 'burning'. affraid Between her and the offending electrical appliance I'm lucky to be alive.

I walked straight into one of the legs of my gazebo at the market today and simultaneously poked myself in the cheek with a paintbrush.

For those that dont know... the Darwin Awards are a tongue in cheek award honoring those who improve the species...by accidentally removing themselves from it!

Watch this space - I could be a serious contender!
