anyone else ever do that?? LOL :oops:
This morning, while my kids and I were waiting for my husband, the minivan got knocked into reverse! I was in the passenger seat, so I couldn’t reach the brakes, but rather than throw the thing back into park, turn the car off, or move to the driver’s seat, I decided to leap out of the moving car and run around to the driver’s side for the brake. :doh: Of course, the car was moving faster than I would have ever guessed, so rather than gracefully leaping out, I was literally thrown from the open doorway onto the driveway as the car continued to accelerate toward the neighbor’s house, and the front end of the van RAN OVER MY LEG!! :pout: I let out this horrible primal scream (remember when Westley’s being tortured in the Princess Bride? Yeah–like that) and watched the van careen into the neighbor’s parked car in his open garage while my husband tried to chase it down. And what occurs to me first? “Is my wedding ring OK?!?” LOL
Anyway, the neighbor’s house and car were miraculously OK, as was our car. In the end, I ended up with a hideous hematoma (think enormous blood/fluid-filled lump) on my calf, a nasty bruise where I landed on my thigh, and bruised bones in my hands, which took most of the force. I’m on some good drugs, but I suspect it’s gonna really hurt tomorrow! HOW STUPID AM I??? :doh:
Anyway, it was pretty much my most embarrassing moment. Anyone else care to share theirs? :shrug:
ETA: I can still knit! Hooray!
