When was the last time you were a victim of a freak accident?
I have a glass picture frame. It’s completely made of very heavy, very thick glass. Nothing comes apart. You slip the picture in a glass slot in the back. It holds an 8 X 10 picture, and the frame around it is about four inches wide and has flowers cut into it. the frame is about ½ an inch thick. Sucker is HEAVY. Think “giant paper weight.” It must weigh 3 pounds. The only way to break it would be with a hammer.
Well, it sets on the top of a 4 foot shelf outside the door to the bedroom. I got up in the middle of the night on Friday (today is Sunday) to go do things that people wake up in the middle of the night to go do. I was coming back to bed, it was dark, my eyes were half closed because I was still half asleep…and I managed to knock that 3 pound picture frame off of the shelf and it slammed, edge on onto my foot, right above the instep…at the most tender part of the foot!
I crawled back in bed thinking “I might be going to the ER in the morning.” (But I didn’t.)
It hurts like hell. I wouldn’t be surprised if the bone was cracked.
