I was talking to a friend earlier today, and we were laughing about how we're both the accident prone ones in our 'squad'. In my lifetime, I've broken both my wrists, one finger, and my tailbone - with my tailbone being the most ridiculous one.
One time, when I was in middle school, I saw a spider crawling on my ceiling. I freaked out and wanted to kill it, but my ceiling was SUPER HIGH, and the only way I could reach it is if I jumped on the bed. So I kept jumping on the bed, trying to squash this spider, and once I actually killed it, I screamed, pulled back, fell off the bed, and landed hard on my tailbone.
I walked around with a something-shoved-up-my-butt style limp for the next few weeks.
Telling her this story got me curious:
What's the stupidest way you've ever injured yourself?
(Extra points if you had an audience and/or a trip to the ER. If your answer is amazing enough, I might just feature it in a round-up card over the weekend!)
