When I was younger and the spice girls were in fashion I bough some faux zebra skin boots with massive crepe platform soles. Honestly thought I was THE coolest in them. BUT they collapsed on the sides while I was walking if I wasn’t carefu (kinda had to do a supermodel strut in them to stay upright). Got a lil bit smashed on a night out, fell off my oh so glamorous shoes, fainted in pain when I stood up as I’d fractured my ankle. Very hard to explain to people. Oh I suffered for fashion….. I stick to sensible flats these days and the ankle still plays up when it’s cold and damp!!

When I went to my now SD dance competition (first time meeting his ex) I literally was walking back to the car and rolled my ankle. Seriously, that’s it just by WALKING. It was humiliating!!! Not to mention I still had to walk on it to get in to her competition and we were 7 hours from home. I couldn’t do anything the next day it was awful lol.

Ooh and I’m not good with sharp things! To date I’ve sewn  through my finger nail with my sewing machine, chiselled the top of my knuckle off while redoing a bathroom, sliced through my middle knuckle while carving a pumpkin and chopped the top of my finger off while slicing a bagel for my son. He still ate it (I picked the finger bit out) but it took a month to heal and my finger is kind of wonky now!!

i don’t go near knives if I can help it and buy pre-sliced bagels these days!

During law school, I was trying to be frugal but also fly. Yeah. So I decided to save money and drop my waxing lady. The first (and ONLY) time I tried to give myself a Brazilian, I ended up with hot wax all over myself. And I glued my butt cheeks together. And glued myself to the bathroom floor. 

Needless to say, never again. I went full on Chewbacca pants for a few years after that because I was traumatized. 😂

mstattoolady :  I’ve cut myself badly with my rotary cutter (like a super sharp pizza cutter) while sewing often enough that Darling Husband insists that I wear one of those knife proof gloves while sewing.

MargaritaVille : 3rd grade:  fishing hook on my ear while looking for a toy (my dad left his fishing poles by my toy chest after his trip). Hilarious hospital visit.

While sweeping my living room I once leaned forward too far, smashing my forehead on the corner of the mantle. 

 

This is one is from a long time ago, but when I was 21 I was the newest manager at a restaurant, bar, and nightclub. We had a long room that had pool tables and it was two steps up from the main dining room. We also had something called “The Friday After Work Party”. We set an appetizer buffet up in the billiard room and offered drink specials. The place was packed. I was walking through and gathering empty plates and glasses to help tidy up while it was so busy. It’s important to know what I was wearing. Black dress pants with a cuff and pumps with about an inch and a half heel. With both hands full of stacks of dishes, I stepped down onto the first step towards the main dining room….except my heel from right shoe was stuck in the cuff of my left pant leg. I basically face planted, from the top of those steps. I didn’t put my hands out to break my fall, because my first thought was not to break any of the dishes. Instead I cradled the dishes, didn’t break any of them, but I broke my nose and my cheek. I didn’t go to the emergency room until after my shift (which ended at 3am) I had two black eyes for something like a week. They basically set my nose and put a thing over it to keep it straight, and they wished me luck for my fractured cheek.

Not only is that a stupid thing I’ve done to hurt myself, but it’s also basically my most embarrassing moment. People came running to help me and I felt like a complete moron with my bleeding nose.

When I was little, maybe 5, I got stuck in the stairs. Not by my head, or a single limb like a normal little shit. No, I was tiny so I was able to get myself through all the way to my shoulders. I was just hanging there like a “you can do it!” cat, from the second to the top stair. I tried to call my mother but she was on the phone and kept saying hold on. My sister came to help me eventually but her idea of helping me was just pushing me the rest of the way through. 

I dislocated my left shoulder and accidentally broke a lamp on my way down. 

As an adult, I have tripped over a giant leopard print high heel shaped chair in a sex toy shop and hurt my butt. It wasn’t the brand of sore in the morning we went there for but hey.
