Isn’t the phrase supposed to be “crash & burn”? Not when you combine clumsy and distracted.
Emma and I were outside sitting in the swing by my parents’ pond this evening. We were letting Lucy just run around and play. I decided it was time to go inside, so I headed to the deck and called Lucy. She didn’t come right away, so I turned to head back to the yard, and I ran smack-dab into the middle of a piece of my mom’s yard art. Basically it’s a decorated/painted plate attached to a stake that they use as a hose barrier so the hose doesn’t get dragged through the plants. I, of course, can’t possibly hit the flat side with the plate, I had to hit the stake side with a bolt/screw sticking out.
I was so distracted with trying to get Lucy, I didn’t even see the plate there. I totally gouged my leg (shin) right open!
Unfortunately, I cannot remember when I last had a tetanus shot, so I’m sure that means I’ll have to get one this week. 🙁
