Quasimoto

I was sitting on the floor in front my entertainment center, searching for Tarzan. The monkeys wanted to watch it, while I had my shower. We found the movie, and I was putting back the CD holder thingy, shut the cupboard door, and...

CRASH!!


I have this really cute tile thingy with vinyl lettering that says "Families are Forever" being held up a really cute rod iron easel.


Well, somehow it lost it's balance, and came crashing down from on top of my entertainment center, landing smack dab on my forehead, bounced, hit my forehead again, then ricocheted, and before I could register what was happening, and reached out to grab it, it hit Peter in the head.

My head took the brunt of the blow, so Peter was OK after being consoled. Not me.

There is something about being hit in the head with a piece of tile, and brings out my inner crazy lady.

Not a pretty sight.

So, this morning, I looked something like this.....




And now, after "the accident" I look more like this.....



Not to mention the massive headache I've been carrying around all day. The 478 ounces of Cherry Coke I drank today, just doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

OWW! And those tiles aren't light! Hopefully a good night's sleep will help....? Did you get one? Hope you feel better soon and aren't permanently disfigured. I don't think Quasimoto had a happy ending.

And my monkeys want to watch Tarzan everyday. And they usually do it while I'm showering, too.

Um, I'm not supposed to laugh at other's misfortune but you made the experience sound more comical than painful, so I'm kind of chuckling :-) But I'm truly sorry that happened.

478 oz. huh? I'm sold! Doesn't take a massive bonk in the head to get me one of the those! Did it wipe out your headache?

Ouch. Sorry! Hope you and Peter feel better tomorrow! (And I am quite certain you don't look anything like Quasimodo!)

I'm glad I can come to your blog and be entertained. Sorry about your head, but the story made me laugh.

I'm just impressed as all get out that you started the day looking like the 1st pic... I start my day always looking like the 2nd one!!

where did you find 478 ounces of cherry coke? I want that much! Was it in IV form??

You know what's so funny about that (well nothing is really funny), but I had a shovel fall off the hook in our garage and hit me on the head twice on the way down. I was in pain and my kids have never seen me freak out and cry. They of course started freaking out with me. I also had a headache all day.
