I Took It On The Chin...

Quite literally. Just like Tyson did when he fought Lewis.

The culprit...


This ratty ol' wood bin. We have it on our property to store some firewood. After hubs splits it, my job is to stack it. This is the last place I like to store wood because its such an eyesore. I never did like this dang gum thing and after today, I will be usin' it for kindlin'.

To get the firewood in, I have to duck down and toss it in to stack it. Well I was pitchin' 'em in there like Roger Clemens durin' the World Series. Sure enough, one log hit the back wall, bounced back and hit me square on the chin.

I can attest to the fact that y'all really do see lil' birdies flyin' around your head like in those old cartoons.

So after I got my wits about me (well, that's a stretch), I went in the house to assess the damage. And again just like in those cartoons, I watched my chin grow a lump like a jumbo Eggland's Best right before my eyes. Man, those cartoon folks are right on the money when it comes to this stuff. I just needed Mel Blanc here to do the sound effects for me. **doink**

Now my chin is a lovely shade of purple with some flecks of red.

Since my head feels like its goin' to explode off my shoulders, I think I'd better go lie down for the rest of the day and pop Advil like Tic Tacs.

"Yo Adriannnnnnne!"
