I Just Did the Dumbest Thing Ever

I thought I had posted about this before, but either the search function failed me or I am nuts. Of course, both could be true. Anyway, I am amused at how people will not only do something embarrassing, but they'll then further embarrass themselves by telling other people about it. I used to think women did this more than men, but I'm now rethinking that opinion.

Now, prepare to feel a whole lot better about yourself.

It was late Friday night, and I was exhausted. We were going to bed and had turned the lights out. It was pretty warm, so the ceiling fan was on to give us a little breeze. I had taken my glasses off, too, so I really couldn't see anything. (If you can't tell, I'm trying to make as many excuses as possible here.) But the little chains hanging from the fan were banging against the light. I decided to examine the situation to see if they could be tied up, or if I would need some tape. So I stood up on the bed.

Fortunately, the fan blade just missed my eye and instead hit the bridge of my nose. The scabs aren't too noticeable, at least if I wear a hat or walk around as though I'm bowing my head in continuous prayer.

[All right, here's a picture. Remember that at this point it's been healing for almost two days.]

I like telling my own embarrassing moment stories. Otherwise, what's the point? That said, I think we're going to need to see some pictures to verify this incident.
