A Big Boy Did It And Ran Away

Yesterday I had a little mishap.

I went to the freezer to take out a loaf of bread. I keep the bread in the top section of the freezer, which is at face level for little old me. It has a plastic drop-down flap at the front but one of the plastic lugs that holds it in place is broken; it has been like that for a couple of years.

As I opened the flap it flew off and hit me right in the face.

It caught me right on the corner of my mouth, cutting my lip and eventually raising a bruise.

Luckily I am not going to be seeing anyone for quite some time.  It would be quite embarassing to try to explain that my cut and bruised face was caused by a freezer.

  1. An elaborate excuse. It is obvious that you are covering for Peregrine. I guess his temper has been getting the better of him during lockdown.

  3. Yikes. If you go out in public though you can now wear a mask and no-one will look twice.

  4. I think my sense of humour must have a glitch in it somewhere. I have never found accidents where people get hurt funny. There used to be programmes on television years ago where people were put into situations which left them totally perplexed. I found those funny. Then it went further and further and the harder they fell the more people laughed. I can't hack that. So I'm sorry that you hurt yourself but please excuse me if I don't laugh.

    1. Thank you for being so kind Graham. I learned to laugh at myself many years ago and the habit is now ingrained.

  5. I would cut off the plug off the freezer and let it know it's been naughty. Naughty freezer. At least you are blessed with a sense of humour JayCee.

    1. Hmmm. But then what would I do with all that defrosted food?

  6. Well, at least you had the ice cubes handy to suppress the swelling.
