For Christmas..a head injury.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by unbasslichkeit, Dec 15, 2007.

  1. About 1pm I was cleaning up some spilled water and other stuff from behind the back of our soon to be traded in washer. I stood up, forgetting that just above the washer at shoulder height was a 7" shelf.

    Head met sharpest corner of shelf, hard, resulting in the following:

    1. Lots of words that would get me banned on TB;
    2. Bleeding - just enough to be kinda scary;
    3. Very scared wife and 6 yo daughter;
    4. Demands from #3 above that I "have to get it looked at now";
    5. Trip to walk in care center since doctor's office is closed;
    6. Two-hour wait to be seen - actually not bad;
    7. Four stitches on a 1.25 inch gash in head;
    8. Doctor's orders to take it easy;
    9. Call to bandleader saying I'm gonna have to miss tonight's Christmas benefit gig, on doctor's orders;
    10. Relief to find that sub bass player has been located;
    11. A sense that things turned out generally okay;
    12. A realization that my wife is a LOT toughter than I give her credit for sometimes.:meh:
