Question of the Day

When is the last time you accidentally hurt yourself in an amusing way?

Not that it was necessarily amusing at the time, mind you, but amusing upon reflection.

The other day, I smashed my pinky toe against the foot of the ottoman in the living room while I was on the phone with Spudsy. All he heard was a muffled mmmphfuck.

When he asked what happened, I told him I'd just stubbed my toe and it hurt like hell. What I did not share was that I'd stubbed my toe, immediately froze in pain, and tipped forward like a plank face-first onto the ottoman, where I lay for a moment, stunned, before I could even enunciate the grunt that welled in my gut.
