The other night, I was hand washing a few dishes after dinner and managed to fully stab myself in my right hand with a steak knife. Of course, when I put the knives in the drying rack thing, I set them sharp end up because I intended on drying them and putting them away immediately (have I ever mentioned how dumb I am sometimes?!). Of course, I got distracted and also washed a cookie sheet that was in the way. When I reached for the cookie sheet to dry it, I stabbed the knife into my hand a good few inches. It took me a few seconds to figure out why my hand felt like it was on fire, when I looked down and saw the stupid knife sticking out of my hand I yelled, “HOLY SHIT, I JUST F-ING STABBED MYSELF!” Luckily, my husband was home and came running into the kitchen. I ended up having to get stitches that night and have been trying to adjust to a temporary left handed life since then. The cut is super close to my wrist and all of those lovely veins, so I was actually super lucky. I still can’t really move my fingers without wincing in pain since the cut is in such a fantastic location.
I’ve never had stitches before, which is amazing when my skill at hurting myself by being a complete idiot is taken into account. Luckily, I am excellent at laughing at myself.
So, Bees…tell me some silly stories about the dumbest injuries you’ve had!

Oooh my goodness, so glad the knife didn’t hit any veins or anything!!
About a week ago I was reaching out of the shower to dab my eyes with a towel (not supposed to rub the water away since I just got Lasik) and I knocked over a glass jar which was in the shower which then shattered and cut my feet in a few places. FI came into the bathroom and calmly took me out of the shower, wiped up the blood and put some bandaids on me. So sweet! But we really shouldn’t have had that jar in the shower in the first place :1

@SophiaPetrillo: I didn’t read this yet, but I had to comment about how awesome your name is. Are you friends with Blanche on the boards? 😉
I’m constantly hurting myself in stupid and annoying ways.

you know those bricks people use to line their flowerbeds and stuff? Yeap, walked into bricks that were lining decorative plants in a mall area during my honeymoon while wearing flip flops and tore up my toes pretty bad. I was too busy running after my new husband to notice the giant palm-like plants apparently.

I was brushing my hair this morning, and the brush got stuck on a knot, and came back and hit me in the eyebrow. The back part of the brush hit me, not the bristles. Really hard. I actually fell to my knees it hurt so bad. It actually still hurts a little bit right now.

@mrskrumpet: Oh my, this sounds like something I’d do! Too funny, how does this stuff happen?!
@elysion: Ouch! It’s too bad that we only think of these things after the fact! I for sure will now put knives sharp end down and you will keep glass out of the shower 😉

Last year I was kicking some dog toys around the living room & up the steps for my dogs to chase (it had been nasty outside and they were a little pent up, so we were working some of that energy out!) Welllll I went to swoop kick a toy up the stairs and I NAILED the coffee table… and broke my big toe! Oh, did I mention I was in the middle of marathon training at the time? Yeah, 16 miles on a broken big toe sucked. It did heal enough that it wasn’t bothering me during the race, but it still isn’t the same size as my other big toe, and it doesn’t bend right either. Oh well :/

I was walking through the house in the middle of the night, peeing as usual, and stubbed my toe so hard on a door frame, I now have two big blood blisters on the tip of my big toe.

@seevan07: Thanks! Nope, but she seems great. I just love the Golden Girls! If I made a list of the stupid things I’ve done that ended in pain somebody would probably create a bubble for me to live in.
@strawbs: Ow ow ow!!!! Toes hurt so much, too.
@ashe89: Ugh, what a way to start the day!

I knocked myself out with the freezer door a couple months back.
SO asked me something as I was going to get the chicken out for dinner, and just as I was opening the door I turned to look at it and just…BAM right in my cheekbone! I knocked myself unconcious and had to go to the ER to check for concussion. I did have one, but I’m ok now.

Fi and I were watching a movie not too long ago and it got really suspensful so I huddled up under the blanket… then when the bad guy jumped out of the shadows, i jumped too, and hit myself in the eye with the remote control! Made for some very awkward moments later in the week trying to explain my black eye!

@flowersandfaerydust: That sounds terrible, and I am so sorry but I read that as you ‘walking through the house and peeing,’ even though I totally know what you meant!!! 😉
@DaneLady: What great timing! Broken toes suck, I fell down the stairs once at my MIL’s house on my birthday (when my husband and I were just dating….SO embarrassing) and broke my big toe. Mine looks weird now too…I have a knob on one side. Great job on not letting that injury stop your training…I would have totally used it as an excuse to sit on my butt and eat cheeseburgers!

I bump into things all the time. So clumsy. But I just get bruises, nothing major.

A few months ago, I managed to lop off a bit my fingertip while attempting to slice a particularly intransigent wedge of gouda. I was pissed.
